Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 3rd, 2011

These days you have your choice of computing interfaces and platforms, but maybe you’re looking for something a bit different. Something retro that still incorporates your modern gear. If that’s the case, check out this antique typewriter that has been modified to work as a USB Keyboard for your PC, Mac, or iPad. It’s fully functional computer keyboard. But also a typewriter.

It not only looks awesome with an iPad on it, it will work with all letters, numbers, and punctuation marks and includes shift, space, and return carriage, which is really activated by the typewriter’s return carriage. What about non-standard keys like F1-F12, esc, ctrl, etc? They are all available on a special toggle key.

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on December 31st, 2010

You might remember that $10 FastMac U-Socket that we showed you back in December of 2009. Sadly it was the victim of a number of delays. There was an October ship date and a raised $20 price last we heard. But it never shipped in October either.

The company is now telling customers that it’s getting ready to ship the USB power socket next month. Finally. Still, it’s better late than never. My walls need some USB power.
