Mechanical keyboards aren’t just for gamers with too much disposable income! <p>Logitech has set out to prove that mechanical keyboards aren’t just for gamers with too much disposable income and an unhealthy obsession for blinking lights! The Logitech K835 is a tenkeyless (TKL, meaning a regularly sized keyboard without the numpad) mechanical budget keyboard. It has an open-body design built on an aluminum plate on a plastic shell featuring either TTC tactile (“blue”) or TTC linear (“red”) key switches.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/review-logitech-k835-tkl.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:60587710-68c6-44af-896c-1738ded92c19 2020-12-30T00:21:00Z 2020-12-30T00:35:00Z The official Raspberry Pi accessory distributor conundrum Why isn’t the Norwegian keyboard layout variant of the official Raspberry Pi keyboard accessory available for sale in Norway? Norway must be its only market. <p>Why isn’t the Norwegian keyboard layout variant of the official Raspberry Pi keyboard accessory available for sale in Norway? Norway is the primary, if not the only, market for it. I went up the distribution chain to figure out why it isn’t available.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/raspberry-pi-keyboard-distribution.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:ed384054-c2bb-4d7b-98c4-b5fa8f8fe95d 2020-03-24T21:18:00Z 2020-03-24T21:18:00Z What keyboard form factor is ergonomically right for you How to measure what PC keyboard form factor (full-size, TKL, 60%, etc.) allow you to maintain a good ergonomic posture (for both gaming and typing). <p>How do you decide which keyboard form factor (full-size, tenkeyless, 60%, etc.) is right for you? For many, the decision comes down to price and how much desk space they have. However, you should make sure you get a keyboard that won’t cause you pain with prolonged use.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/keyboard-form-factor-guide.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:974ae647-4757-4ae8-95b3-66e96565d060 2017-12-18T19:06:00Z 2017-12-18T19:06:00Z The inadequate Windows keyboard layout I simply don’t get the typographical characters and symbols I need every day with the inadequate default Windows keyboard layout. <p>Your keyboard layout (“keymap”) is the map between your thoughts and the physical movements of your hands and fingers — whether it be on a touch screen or actual keycap-buttons — to the symbols, letters, and words you write out in digital formats.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/windows-keyboard-layout-inadequacies.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:78bb2a50-fdb2-4068-9e54-97e8d3510b8f 2014-02-23T17:54:00Z 2014-02-23T17:54:00Z Praise for detachable MicroUSB keyboards My keyboard has a detachable Micro-USB connector, and I love it! It makes it so easy to quickly charge and connect my other devices. <p>Imagine a keyboard with a detachable standard interface that you could quickly plug into any other computer. It sounds like the promise of wireless Bluetooth or even regular USB keyboards! Unfortunately, Bluetooth re-pairing is a pain and USB cables inconveniently detach on the back of the computer.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/review-microusb-keyboards.html">Read more …</a></p>
