Glow in the dark data

Posted in Keyboards by Chetz on September 23rd, 2007

Brando glow in the dark keyboardNow that fall has finally arrived and the days are growing shorter darkness falls earlier each day. If you want to bring a little light into your work environment and pick up your spirits on gloomy days consider investing $27 and pick up a Flexible Illuminated Full Sized Keyboard from Hong Kong-based Brando.

The silicon material that the keyboard is made from is flexible enough that you can roll it up or twist and turn it. Dimensions are 49×13 mm and it only weighs 335 grams so packing it around shouldn’t be too much of a burden. The illumination can be seen in a lighted environment but of course it looks better in a low light or dark room.

Sit stool is shaped like a computer keyboard key with the word sit on itIf just a picture of an escape key isn’t quite geeky enough for you, here’s a plastic stool shaped like a computer keyboard key from non other than a Japanese company named DUENDE.

The Command Sit stool comes in colors of black or white with the word “sit” on the top (so you know what to do with it, I guess). What’s more is that these stools are even stackable, so you can have a bunch in the corner and pull them out when a clan of your equally geeky peers stop by to visit.

Posted in Apple,Keyboards by Chetz on August 7th, 2007

Apple’s new superthin keyboard available in wired or wireless Bluetooth version.Along with the new iMac announced today Apple has also released that rumored super-thin keyboard we heard about not too long ago. As it turns out those preview photos appear to have been pretty accurate and now we’re looking at not only one but two new, thin aluminum keyboards available from Apple.

Both keyboards are made from anodized aluminum like the new iMac and have dedicated keys to adjust the monitor brightness, volume, drive eject, Expose and play/pause. One of the two new keyboards is a wired version that is very thin and connects through USB . It’s wider than the wireless version with a number pad on the right like a standard keyboard. It also has two USB 2.0 ports built into the little legs to connect any peripherals conveniently.

The new wireless version of the …

New iMac Keyboard?

Posted in iMac,Keyboards,Rumors by Reuben Drake on July 27th, 2007

sneak peak at what might be the new iMac KeyboardIs this a picture of a new keyboard from Apple that will come with the new iMac? The folks over at Engadget received a tip and this looks like it could be legit. It has the same brushed aluminum finish as we are expecting with the new iMac and it’s certainly as thin as we would like to see as one of the photos holds up a ruler showing the keys sticking up to just slightly over one millimeter.

The rumor came from a message board where someone had a number of these supposed new iMac keyboards for sale for just over $150 each. Since then most of the pictures have been taken down.

As Engadget pointed out, there isn’t an Apple logo on the command key which seems odd, but if this isn’t the real …

Posted in Keyboards,Logitech,Mouse by Chetz on July 26th, 2007

Logtech Cordless Desktop Wave keyboard and mouseThe new Wave keyboard from Logitech has your complete typing comfort in mind with curves that are designed to nicely fit your hands without any odd-shaped or spread-apart keys that cause you to re-learn to type. The wave design even goes all the way down to the actual keys, giving them each a slight contour for your fingertips.

The total typing comfort doesn’t stop there, though. The Wave keyboard also has a cushioned palm rest and the height is adjustable to three different positions. Should you choose to go with the whole Wave desktop set instead of just the keyboard you’ll also get a ambidextrous and precise laser mouse with standard buttons and rubberized grips that will run for up to 6 months on one set of batteries (the keyboard goes for 15 months without a battery change).

The Wave Desktop set is …

Kensington Ci70 Wireless Desktop

Posted in Kensington,Keyboards,Mouse by Chris Weber on June 12th, 2007

Kensington Ci70 Wireless Desktop has a very thin stylish designThis Ci70 wireless desktop set from Kensington has got to be the sleekest and thinest we’ve seen, and definitely had the minimalist in mind when designed.

The footprint on the keyboard is 40% smaller than standard multimedia keyboards and even the mouse runs anorexic at 35% of the average size. When not in use the mouse docks neatly in the keyboard to save space and conserve power. An automatic sleep timer also helps conserve energy and saves on wear of the optical sensor.

The wireless desktop works with Windows and Mac computers and has both an Eject button and a Windows start menu button, where usually a keyboard would have one or the other but seldom both. They also both run off of a single USB receiver to help against needing a 16 port USB hub. To top it …

Hot Keys

Posted in Keyboards by Chetz on May 25th, 2007

Heated Keyboard for cold fingersIf it’s cold enough where you use your computer we have three suggestions to offer you. One, turn on the heat. Two, move where it’s not cold. If either one isn’t an option for you then our final recommendation would be V8 Tools Heated Computer Keyboard, the thermal solution to cold fingertips.

The company claims that this is the first heated keyboard to ever be sold and we tend to agree with them. It comes with three settings: off, low heat (85 F to 90 F) and high heat (95 F to 100 F). It’s USB compatible, uses 20 watts of power and has multimedia shortcut keys on the top too. If you’re doing data entry at the front desk of an ice hotel you definitely should be asking your boss to buy you one of these. It lists for $43.59 on the …
