There are a lot of typing and gaming purists out there that think the world went wonky when keyboards moved away from the mechanical keys that used to be the common in the early days of computing and went with the membrane keys and other tech that is used today. If you are one of the mechanical keyboard fans, you may be familiar with the Das Keyboard.
It seems internet commenter dismay that Google's Chrome OS notebook, the Cr-48, lacks a Caps Lock key may be premature. Although the notebook does indeed put a dedicated search button where Caps Lock would normally be found, according to the Chrome OS notebook "getting started" guide, you'll be able to switch back the functionality in the platform's settings.
Apple's on-screen keyboards and auto correction technology isn't half bad in iOS, but it's still fair to say that consuming text on the iPad is an easier endeavour than entering it. The Cupertino company's own iPad Keyboard Dock is one way to address the issue, though not especially portable; the GearZap iPad KeyCase - sold by AIDACASE in the US - attempts to remedy that, being a combination Bluetooth keyboard and folio case. Have our typing prayers been answered? Check out the full review after the cut.
Bluetooth keyboards aren't a new market. Even the miniature versions of the portable pieces of tech aren't all that new, either. But, that's no reason to ignore them. Especially not the good ones. And while the iTiny Bluetooth Keyboard is new to the market, it's certainly not the smallest, nor is it the only one to support connections to Sony's PlayStation 3.
You don’t hear much about the Philips amBX stuff anymore. A few years back the gear was going to be the next big thing in gaming. The core system was speakers, fans, and lights that made the room colors look like the game and blew in your face when you were doing things like driving or flying to make it more realistic.
Typically, when I think of adding an external keyboard to my iPad or iPhone, I want one that has larger keys than the device has by default. Apparently, EFO isn't aware that many of us feel that way judging by the tiny keys that the Mini Bluetooth Wireless keyboard packs.
Logitech has been quiet for the last several months and all the sudden over the last few weeks the company has whipped out a bunch of new gear. The latest new offering from Logitech is the Logitech Wireless Combo MK520 that includes a mouse and a keyboard.
We've been covering the Optimus Popularis for what seems like forever, but there's a good reason for that. Even before it got delayed, and ultimately changed, it was a great keyboard. And now that it has been altered, slimmed down, and the keys made to work a bit more adeptly with a user's hands, we can safely say that it's going to be a great keyboard. And now that we get to see the first images of the keyboard, and not in a drawn-up fashion, we're even more excited.
We're at the tail-end of the week, and we're not going to lie: we can feel it. All the way to our bones. If you're getting paid this Friday, hopefully you've already decided on something to buy yourself -- gotta spend that earned money, right? Or, maybe you've already waited in line for the thing you wanted to get yourself? That's probably the case. But, moving away from the Apple-phone for a short time, let's take a look at The Best of R3 Media. First up, we've got a software update for the EVO 4G coming soon, an updated keyboard that we want, and some wireless syncing for BlackBerrys. And then, in the Dredge 'Net, Hulu's still being passed around, RIM does pretty well for itself, and head to a Microsoft Store to play some Kinect.
Digital keyboards seem to be the big thing now-a-days. That has a lot to do with Apple's iPhone (did you hear? Over 600,000 iPhone 4s pre-ordered!), and of course there's plenty more out there for anyone to use, and get accustomed to. But, sometimes you just need to feel those physical keys under your fingers, and we completely understand where you're coming from. Don't want a thick phone? Maybe it's time you look at a Bluetooth keyboard. Don't want a full-sized one? Here's your perfect middle-ground, then.
