As part of the continual and obsessive updating about my office, please see for your own pleasure the new input devices: A Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000, which takes care of my need for keys that are not so sticky and clunky, and a Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch tablet, which I am testing as a mouse replacement in a general sense but which I also got because I do all that crazy Photoshoppery that I do.
The gamers among you will say, sure, that’s a fine solution if all you want to do is typing, but what if you want to do some gaming? Well, see that’s the magic: Because the new keyboard is bluetooth enabled, I can keep the other keyboard/mouse plugged in for when I want to do some zombie killin’. Right now they’re both in a drawer, awaiting the moment they are needed. Waste not, want not, I always say. And the other short term benefit is that it keeps the desk decluttered, which as you all know is something I’m aiming for these days.
I know. Gripping stuff. But, hey: Sometimes you get me blathering about controversial topics, sometimes you get me burbling on about keyboards. That’s part of the excitement around here, such as it is.
