Zagg Pocket Keyboard Review – the last phablet keyboard you’ll ever need

Zagg Pocket Keyboard Review – the last phablet keyboard you’ll ever need

The Zagg Pocket Keyboard is a product I did not expect would be as awesome as it turned out to be. Zagg has made some awesome products in the past - they've never really let us down in the past - but they're not know for their particularly flashy or otherwise massively memorable presentations. That's not what we need here. What we need is a keyboard that works for a large smartphone - or any detached screen sort of device - that also folds down to a very small size. Zagg did it right.

Fleksy now has GIFs for times when words aren’t enough

Sometime, words won’t do. Even an acronym like ‘LOL’ sometimes fails to convey the right message. In those times, a GIF can likely help out. To help you get the right message across, Fleksy is announcing a partnership with Riffsy to bring GIFs right to their keyboard app. Coming to iOS today (and soon for Android), Fleksy’s fast-typing keyboard app will also let you quickly access GIFs. GIFs will come pre-configured in Fleksy, and the app maker claims they’re the only ones who have GIFs, emoji, and a proper keyboard in the same app.

iPad stays strange with INKO: electric ink and tatooed leather

iPad stays strange with INKO: electric ink and tatooed leather

Straight from the crew at Appropriate Audiences, the iPad cover/keyboard known as INKO uses electric ink to create a unique approach to tapping out sentences. This piece of equipment functions as a cover for the iPad as well as a full-functioning keyboard and is made primarily of leather. Standard ink was applied to the inside to create a keyboard with a 3D printer hacked to be a tattooing machine - a marvel in and of itself. Under the hood, electric paint makes circuits and sensors on leather to make for a truly odd piece of work.

Emoji Keyboard skin puts characters right beneath your fingers

Emoji Keyboard skin puts characters right beneath your fingers

Everyone loves emojis these days, right? The wide range of characters has become our de-facto form of communicating on our smartphones. But what about when we sit down at our desks or laptops and use physical keyboards? On a Mac, entering your favorite emoji becomes a tedious process of navigating a character-entry tab and clicking on emoji one at a time with a mouse. That's where the crazy kids at Disk Cactus have stepped in with their emoji keyboard overlay skin, currently on Kickstarter.

Fleksy is announcing a deal which brings Yahoo right to your keyboard. Rather than find Siri, Google Now, or a browser, you can search from anywhere.

Microsoft bends their OS-agnostic mobile keyboard in half: Hands-on

Microsoft bends their OS-agnostic mobile keyboard in half: Hands-on

Two mid-range Lumia smartphones from Microsoft just got an accessory. Really, everyone did. Today, Microsoft is unveiling a foldable version of their cross-platform keyboard, launched late last year. Originally, the keyboard shielded itself from outside damage with a fold-down lid that doubled as a backstop for your tablet or smartphone. The new, fold-y version of the keyboard won’t do that, but it does offer a smaller footprint for users, handy when toting around. We don’t have word on pricing or availability just yet.

Das Keyboard 4C Review

Das Keyboard 4C Review

This is the newest in a line of high-end mechanical keyboard from Das Keyboard, the Das Keyboard 4C. This unit works with a tenkeyless design - which basically means that it drops the number pad found on many keyboards in favor of a slightly more sleek piece of equipment. In this keyboard we have what might be the best multi-purpose piece of equipment ever made by Das Keyboard, made for general business use as well as high-powered gaming. 87 keys in the USA and 88 keys in Europe - that's all you'll need to roll and press.
