a new kickstarter keyboard
i think that keyboard is a fail. pretty bad.
- 1st, vertical is not optimal for hand health. More like 40 degree.
- 2nd, vertical makes it impossible to use the keyboard casually, which we all need, even novel writers.
- 3rd it makes it harder to press keys, no gravity, and no line of sight.
repost. minor update.

thank you HK
this one is among the popular ones in my reviews. Lots people got it.
But the keyboard firmware has changed since i got it. So, i can't program the keys, therefore no more upcoming review about it. Nor can i use it with extensive customization for emacs. I need firmware programability, because, ① am using Dvorak, ② there are many duplicated keys on this keyboard, and programing keys via OS keyboard tools can't distinguish duplicate keys.
possibly, i'll have a video review in a week. but i need to get a video cam first.
send me some good if you like to see it. amazon egift card to email@example.com , $20 is nice.

This trackball, has the most smooth ball of all trackballs under $150. Added a video.
X-Bows Keyboard Review
Microsoft Surface Pro Review
added lots photos. The integrated touch screen + pen, is truly critical. Beats Apple's. With iPad + iOS, you can't do serious coding on it, and everything you do is sent to FBI, and nothing you could control, even if you are a tech head. But MacBook + macOS doesn't support pen computing, even if you use a drawing tablet. Apple wants you to buy its Magic Trackpad or iPad.

Kinesis Advantage2 Keyboard Review
yeah, get it. my complaint is that, watch out if your hand is not big. and, be careful how you use the thumb keys. try move whole hand instead of twitching thumbs. and, i wish it had full sized function keys.
the empty area in middle, put in a programable keypad.
