Freestyle Solo Keyboard for Mac users

I have always cared just as much about my technology accessories as I do about the tech items themselves. I'm not really sure why, but I'm highly particular about what I pair together. Which means I always like checking out even boring accessories like keyboards.

Optimus Popularis 3D prototype shot released

Optimus Popularis 3D prototype shot released

After teasing with a foam mockup, Art Lebedev Studios have released the first 3D prototype shot of the in-development Optimus Popularis keyboard.  The keyboard is shorter than the original Optimus Maximus, with the extra row of shortcut keys moved from the left of the main keys to above the function keys.  However it seems to share the same each-key-a-display setup, although the space key display is now full-length rather than the small square OLED on the Maximus.

AlphaGrip bulbous UMPC concept: more buttons than sense

AlphaGrip bulbous UMPC concept: more buttons than sense

It must be galling for all the smartphone and UMPC manufacturers who have tried so desperately to slim their products down into wafer-thin tablets, when actually what's needed is a huge, ergonomically-bulging game-controller-on-steroids.  At least, that's what designer of the AlphaGrip Handheld Computer believes; their entry for the Next-Gen PC Design competition is reminiscent of an XBox 360 controller only with masses of buttons and chording keys underneath for text entry.  There's even a flip-up touchscreen display, flanked by - you guessed it - more controls.

It seems that ThinkGeek is pretty impressed with it as well, so impressed, that they have decided to add it to their site for purchase.

Saitek PK17U Cyborg gaming keyboard – might come alive and blind you with its lights

This keyboard almost scares me a little, I mean its certainly intimidating to look at. It has too much lighting, I mean there are all the lights and such on the bezel above the keys, and then there are 3 different colors of backlights that can be adjusted in brightness or even mixed in an color combination with the other two colors and then common gaming keys have their own special lighting as well as metal key caps.

Intel’s Netbook goes bye bye – now called SmartBook

Intel’s Netbook goes bye bye – now called SmartBook

Actually Intel is referring to the whole line of these notebooks as Netbooks, so technically it’s not totally gone. But, the notebook isn’t actually being manufactured by Intel so they are letting all the manufacturers of this platform of notebooks choose their own name for theirs.

Right now there is a manufacturer in Malaysia, they are calling theirs the SmartBook. There will be two different models, both with Intel Celeron processors, a half gig of RAM, and b/g WIFI.

Spectrum ZX Laptop – blast from the past

Spectrum ZX Laptop – blast from the past

I am no computer historian but when the two computers that made up this beast are referred to as old and older, its pretty obvious this stuff is old. So some guy took a Spectrum ZX and a Toshiba Libretto 110 and smacked the two together.
