In the course of a conversation, you may stumble into a topic you’re not quite sure about. A simple question could lead to a protracted debate or discussion, with curiosity getting the better of you. Rather than flip-flop between apps, it would be a lot easier if you had some sort of in-line search feature in a conversation. Now, you do. 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.

Your smartphone or tablet may be as powerful as a computer, but is the form factor as useful as one? Without a dedicated hardware keyboard, many productivity apps are left to compromise, or leave you wanting. Hacking out a longer email might even be more trouble than it’s worth, and carrying around a keyboard is not easy for most.

Arduino-based KeySweeper charger sniffs MS wireless keyboards

For geeks and professional typists, the choice of keyboard is like religion and some of them adhere to the religion of Microsoft's Wireless Keyboard line. These users, however, now need to be rather aware, if not paranoid, about their beliefs. Samy Kamkar, a hardware enthusiast and security buff, has just developed an Arduino-powered contraption that can sniff out any and every keystroke done on any Microsoft Wireless Keyboard within range, rendering even the most secure of passwords useless. And it even functions as a real USB wall charger to boot.

ZAGG Pocket Keyboard brings comfy typing to your phone, tablet

As smartphones get larger, the ability to type on them has progressively been tougher. More screen means less room for your non-growing human hands. Hacking out a quick text message might be easy enough, but if you’ve got a longer email you need to work on — you know the strain your thumbs feel.

It might even have you turning away from the desktop, as ZAGG says 85% of the standalone keyboard is found in their offering.

101touch next-gen keyboard is all touchscreen

Anyone who has ever tried to use a touchscreen keyboard knows immediately the issue with those. The keys lack any tactile feel. Without tactile feel, it's hard to tell if you have your fingers in the correct location for touch typing and it's hard to tell when you have actually pressed the keys. This is why many people opt for external keyboards when they need to type a lot.

Razer BlackWidow Chroma Review

Razer BlackWidow Chroma Review

Of the three Razer Chroma devices we've reviewed this week, the BlackWidow gaming keyboard is by far the most complex. In color, anyway - instead of just a couple of different ways to display color, this keyboard works with a wide variety of color blasts. It's one of the finest gaming keyboards on the market, too, of course. Since it first launched in 2010, the Razer BlackWidow has been one of the most popular gaming keyboards on the circuit - the pro eSports gaming circuit, that is - this is one of the keyboards the top gamers in the world use when they're competing for millions of dollars in cash prizes.
