It seems Microsoft have come up with something cool to do with a keyboard. This… cool thing.. is a merging of computer system controller and…. a keyboard.
So someone down here in the Australian media has then seen it and which somehow led to them writing an article about alternative keyboards.
The device itself is actually more about replacing the trackpad or mouse, but the writer certainly didn’t let that fact get in the way of a good story about keyboards. And while the article provides nil new information, it does however talk a fair bit about typewriters and the history of attempts to change the keyboard.
You can read the article here. But don’t just yet.
Don’t spend too much time reading the article. The author doesn’t actually “say” much. Instead, they seem to have liberally quoted Rob Messenger over at Oz Typewriter for the article, and looked at the already pointles KALQ keyboard.
Now my question is: Rob, (or anyone else) do you actually have a DVORAK keyboard typewriter? I’d love to get my hands on one, or at least see one.
In the meantime while we’re waiting for these replacement keyboards, here’s a picture of what Time magazine calls ‘the ultimate blogger desk‘. A desk that has been made so your cat can scurry about exploring inside instead of annoying you on the top of your desk.
Hmmm… I’m sure there’s some more useless garbage that I can cram into this post. Just let me know if I’ve missed something.
