Method of pop-up reminders or warnings keyed off of keywords detected in key -entry devices.
It would be helpful for reminders for certain key words or phrases to pop up in a user's view when they input those keywords or phrases into a text input program such as: chat, email, texting. These reminders could help jog a person's memory or even serve as a warning for some issue.
What is proposed is a set of public and private databases that map reminders or warnings to keywords. When these keywords are detected during text input, the warnings/reminders temporarily appear giving the users a visual aid.
In an example of this idea, three types of databases are presented: private, public, and corporate.

Public - this database is one in which other or shared users can also see the pop-up reminders. Corporate - these are databases where users have no input or editing powers to add or delete reminders.
