I have no problem with that
... as long as he drives it out the back of say a spaceX just launched just before it leaves the atmosphere, it bounces off a mountain cliff, explodes on contact with the water below and what remains from that is crushed into a tiny ball as it sinks 7 miles to the bottom of the Mariana trench, leaving only a lone soccer ball and Everton shirt floating on the water.
OK, yeah, perhaps that's overdoing it a little bit, it's more likely to be Man-U.
(and anyway there's no mountains close enough to the Mariana for that to happen ...unless ...)
They are making it because there are people that would buy it. That's what makes me sad.
There are cars that I despice but still understand that they need to exist, like the people carrier. (I might even buy one myself out of pure actual need, and then roll up in a fetal position and weep a bit)
The four wheel drive pickup I can understand as well. If the owner lives off the grid on the country side.
But the SUV of today is one of the most pointless contraptions in existence. (Note, I don't think of Toyota Land Cruiser or LandRover Defender as SUVs, they are offroad vehicles)
Had a Logitech Wave (K350) for the longest time. Got tired of feeling like the keys were binding at an angle (although they worked with more pressure). Went to the office stores and tested all of theirs, then ran down to Fry's and found an Azio MK-RETRO-04 (non-backlit) one for $72. Pried open the box and tested it out, since the office stores didn't have any. Holy cow! I'd forgotten what it was like to glide type!
Sorry this sounds like a commercial! But to repeat myself, Holy Cow! Shouldn't have waited so long! Fingers are already starting to relax!
The Azio definitely has that ancient 'clickety-clack'! Wonderful! My fingers just glide across the top of them, and it has enough feedback to put a smile on my face! Making fewer typing errors, and faster, too! (I'm only about 60 WPM, so not an old-school master.) It reminds me of the first generation of high quality keyboards on early computers, before we got the mushroom-pressing cheapness of all the others I played with today.
PS - had to get another USB hub for it, because it is wired, and my laptop is all plugged up!
Fry's wanted $99 for that one, so I passed. It is classier, but this red on black is cool, and not too distracting.
If you are into Hi-Fi and have a Frys nearby, they were selling the Blue Sadie headphones for $250 instead of the $350 Amazon price. Amazing! They had them on display to listen to, and I was totally blown away. It might have only been the store near me, though, as they show online at $399.
Muscular Fingers - anything that has all the keys working is fine.
In a few minutes the fingers are adapted to the pressure and spacing. That being said, there are keyboards and there are Keyboards. A wireless keyboard/mouse set that cost US$15 feels like it (and I have one, but that system's rarely used).
Once above some minimum threshold, however, "It's All Good".
Actually, they feel better than any square ones I've ever used. They are slightly concave, and guide your fingers to the center. If you see one at a store near you, test it out. I think you will be surprised (but I could be wrong).
