Have you ever just looked at someone and knew the wheel was turning but the hamster was dead?
Trying to understand the behavior of some people is like trying to smell the color 9.
I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours!
Hi, just bought myself a CM Storm Devistator keyboard, NOT for gaming, but for the pure joy of working with a keyboard with proper layout, nice positive key feadback, and the minimum of extra multi-media/rubbish keys cluttering the place. For too long I've made do with a cheep keyboard, and although this one doesn't break the bank, I'm so satisfied that I've ordered another one to bring to work.
I expect I'll enjoy a mechanical keyboard even more, but they're getting quite expensive.
What's funny for me is that this higher quality keyboards are pushed as gaming devices, while I am positive that for people who type a lot, it's even more worthit.
What's your take on this?
I have a (quite old now) Logitech media keyboard, which replaced my seriously ancient (20 years or so) cheap mechanical one. Mostly because Herself complained that she couldn't use it, since nearly all the keytop legends had worn off...
It's pretty good: way better than the POS that came with the computer. Good feel, good travel, pretty good layout. Yes, it has extra keys I don't use - but it types well, and that's what matters.
The ones I hate are lappie keyboards: too cramped, not enough travel, and the keys are generally too small as well so I end up hitting two for the price of one.
You looking for sympathy?

I have a 4 years old Logitech keyboard - and very pleased with...
Whenever I need new one I go and check them in different shops than order from the cheapest source on the web (if I need one for the office I order it via them)...
I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is. (V)
I will keep the Devistator keyboard in mind for my next build. Thanks for sharing!
Currently using the keyboard from the first Windows PC I ever bought... an HP from around '98. Every few years I take it apart and give it a good cleaning. The keyboard is one of the main reasons I dislike working on a laptop. I use the special keys (ins, del, home, end, pg up/down) and arrow keys a lot and the way they are arranged on the laptop sucks, plus, the laptop does not have a number pad...a tradeoff for the size.
Evidently a bunch of celebrities had their iCloud accounts hacked.
Now there are nOOdie picks of several A-listers floating around the internet.
As much as I'd like to bag on Apple for the data breach I really do think turning it into a Company A vs. Company B issue is missing the point.
For me the real question is: Why do you have nOOdie pictures of yourself on your computer?
If I wanted to see my own nasty I'd suck in my gut, hold the waistband on my sweat pants out with my thumb and look down. That would be so much quicker than firing up the computer, logging into an account, and digging through folders looking for pictures of myself nekkid. Sheesh.
If you have nOOdie pictures of yourself on your computer you're are an aspiring porn star whether you want to be or not...
Why do you have nOOdie pictures of yourself on your computer?
Well, technically, these celebrities did not. They had pictures on their self-phones, which were sync-ed to the iCloud. Most of them were probably unaware of the sync-ing, which could also be the reason why they did not care that much.
As for taking naked selfies, I totally agree with you, I cannot see the point. Which makes me feel kind of special, not sure whether good or not, because a lot of people seem to be doing it.

Entropy isn't what it used to.
This happened to a couple of mates of mine at Accenture - not the selfie thing but the auto sync.
They'd downloaded some booby pics to their phone, then sync'd what they thought were just their diaries & contacts with their work PC. This was their own (ie non-work owned) mobiles BTW.
Unfortunately, they'd been syncing for months, but the company introduced a zero-tolerance porn policy, so they were sacked. It caused a huge kerfuffle, it was proved that the files were synced rather than downloaded, all the management team in the office signed a petition to have them re-instated as it clearly wasn't their fault. It went to tribunal, and they we re-instated, but not because they weren't culpable (which would have made sense) but because a manager in a different office was caught out immediately after the ban and reinstated.
They both left Accenture a few months later, by the time the tribunal had happened everyone knew who they were and why they were sacked & it was too embarrassing for them to stay. Sometimes Often life is just a bit too much like Dilbert for comfort.
The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it.
