Why Dvorak And Colemak Are Not For Me

I’m starting this post after a long day of trying to learn the Colemak keyboard layout. I’m tired. I haven’t gotten much work done.

There’s no separation between the halves, but you can do splay, tenting, and just about anything else you like with the Goldtouch.

3M Ergonomic Mouse Review

Though it looks like an undersized joystick, the ergonomic mouse from 3M is really just an ordinary mouse with an unusual shape. It implements the vertical mouse idea in a unique and interesting way – but the location of the buttons may prove a problem for some.

orbiTouch Keyless Keyboard and Mouse Review

The orbiTouch from Blue Orb (formerly Keybowl) is one of the strangest-looking creations ever to be called an input device. Compared to a keyboard and mouse, it’s inefficient and relatively slow. But for the handicapped or those with severe RSI, it’s a lifesaver, enabling many of these folks to communicate when they otherwise could not. […]

Handshoe Mouse Review

The Hippus Handshoe mouse isn’t just big, it’s huge. It looks like a mouse that got melted onto a plastic dinner plate during a fire. Seriously, this thing dwarfs even my large Contour Mouse, and makes ordinary mice look like little bugs. Once you get over the shock of its size and start using the […]
