    Help me find a quality Apple-friendly keyboard

    Well, I’ve burned through another Apple keyboard. The last one lasted about year. Not too bad, but I’m sick of buying ‘em and I have been searching for a high-quality model with no success. What I’m looking for is something with-non membrane keys that’s equipped with an Apple key and volume control. Das Keyboard would be my ideal choice but some reviews state that… Read More

    Logitech brings sexy back with wireless DiNovo Keyboard for Macs

  • OMG!! Another iPhone keyboard, this one Bluetooth OMG!!

    OMG!! Another iPhone keyboard, this one Bluetooth OMG!!

    Hot on the heels of our first keyboard abomination we present this odd $92 keyboard for the iPhone. The BTKeyMini is available from Avalive and is on pre-order right now but it does work directly with the iPhone, which saves you from having to tear up an old third-party keyboard. Again, I’m totally OK with not having to carry a keyboard around but maybe you’re writing your novel on… Read More

    Pinky-impaling Caps Lock key aims to curb shouting

    You should all know by now the simple rules of internet etiquette – or “netiquette” as it’s so ROFL-ingly referred to in some circles. One of the first-learned and easiest-to-remember rules is that you mustn’t shout at people unless it’s absolutely warranted. Example One: “DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN BUY DOOM 7 IT CAME OUT I THINK ALREADY BUT I… Read More

    SteelSeries making a custom Warhammer MMO keyset for the zBoard

    I’ve always been slightly skeptical about custom key setups. But, of course, I don’t usually play the types of games where a truly custom keyboard might be really handy. Maybe in Guild Wars. But I can certainly see, for games like WoW, EVE Online, and now Warhammer: Age of Reckoning, that a custom keyboard might actually be a real plus. As much as I’m used to it, it does feel a… Read More

    Spyshots of some Dell peripherals

    Jason from Techware Labs seems to have gotten himself some private time with a new Dell keyboard and mouse and I have no idea whether or not these are worth posting, but maybe some of you periphery freaks will get a kick out of it. A new Dell mouse seems to be a shot across the bow for Logitech. The text around the sensor reads “LaserStream Technology” which is a trademark used by… Read More

    Review: Razer Lycosa gaming keyboard

    I’ve been using the same keyboard for the last, well, many many years, so it’s fitting that all of a sudden I should have several dropped in my lap. I’m currently juggling offerings from Microsoft, Razer, and SteelSeries. I can tell you right now that none of them sucks, but if you want more you’ll have to read the reviews.

    App-specific, Apple-specific, colorful keyboard skins

    These rubber skins fit snugly on your keyboard and have all the app-specific stuff printed right on. It’s questionable whether the things are that useful, although they most certainly are cool. After all, if you have already learned the shortcuts in Aperture or Photoshop that you use the most, you don’t need the skin. And if you haven’t learned them, then once you do, you… Read More

    Kensington's new keyboard is actually slick and different

    I don’t know what the feeling is that I get from this keyboard. I feel like it’s a bad guys keyboard. Like how in the first season of 24 all the bad guys used PCs? I feel like they should also have been using these keyboards. Functional and attractive, yet stark and somehow menacing, this is the keyboard which which an arch-villain might stock his evil HQ. I want one. Read More
