You know how they talk about the “MySpace angles?” Where shots are taken at crazy angles that obscure a person’s true appearance? I think the Arc Keyboard has a bit of that going on. Its counterpart, the Arc Mouse, looked good from any angle. I still recommend it to people looking for a really compact wireless mouse. This thing — well, I can see the appeal, but the angles aren’t doing it for me. Makes me think it’s got something to hide.

They don’t really explain this button in the lower right hand corner, though. It’s where the arrow keys would normally be, so maybe it’s an all-in-one arrow? That’d be awesome.

It’ll cost $60 and will be available exclusively at Best Buy. We’ll get a hands on later.
