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.

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.
