That first one actually looks like a pretty good idea. I like the idea of centralized backspace and enter keys, as well as closer shift keys. I never could get used to the "natural" keyboards tho, too funky for me.

Brian prefers things that are "unnatural."

Personally, I think I'm too old to learn new tricks.

One day they figured out how to make a keyboard wireless. And that's pretty much the last keyboard INOVASHUN that will ever be needed.

Meaning, he doesn't type properly.

I only use the tilted split "natural" keyboard - THIS is the one that I currently use at work. I've found that people who don't keep their fingers on the ASDF JKL; line don't like to use my keyboards, but that's fine with me. I don't want their fingers on my stuff anyways!

I use both hands interchangably for 'y' and 'b' which makes the split keyboards a little weird to use. Rob, shouldn't that have flames or kanji or racing stripes, at least, on it?

Also, while we're slightly on the subject, ESDF 4LIFE!!!

It's your ideal keyboard! Tilted for ergonomics, but not split for your freaky B & Y use, and black to boot! You know you like it better black, ohhhh yeahhhhh

How so? I don't like the splits either. I type about 70 wpm without looking. (Actually, when I think about typing it slows me down.)

What's the footpedal do? Alt-tab boss button? Adjust the sewing speed? Switch warrior stances in WoW?
