Not everyone is capable of appreciating art, but even if you aren’t an art lover, I am pretty sure that this set of artwork will catch your eye! I ran across the collection at Walyou, where they featured 22 pieces. Here are some of the ones I liked the most. This computer chair is pretty […]

Give your MacBook a LEGO makeover

Etsy is home to all things handmade — both kooky and wondrous. Here’s one that could be either, depending on your love of plastic building blocks. An Etsy seller called “openandclose” has made available a set of stickers for your MacBook keyboard that resemble LEGO bricks. Specifically, the tops of LEGO bricks, where the studs […]

For the Geeky Chick – Keyboard Clutch

A few years ago, I applied for a job at a local magazine here in town. After the interview, the editor said to me, “So this is a fashion magazine. What would a guy like you want to do with fashion?” I replied, “It’s a challenge.” I didn’t get the job. Not then, anyways. A […]

Microsoft intros SideWinder X4 anti-ghosting gaming keyboard

Microsoft has unveiled its latest keyboard designed specifically for gamers. The SideWinder X4 claims to handle the problem of ghosting — where it’s impossible to determine exactly which of multiple keys have been pressed — by detecting up to 26 keys at any one time. Quite who can press 26 keys in one go is […]

You Heart GMail So Much You Need a Gboard

So, you live by GMail but you don’t have it synchronised with your desktop mail software, and you can’t remember the keyboard shortcuts to execute a range of useful commands?

4iThumbs: iPhone gets tactile keyboard overlay

Smartphone and cellphone users tend to be fairly clear about what type of keyboard they prefer on their device, be it the standard numeric keypad, a physical QWERTY keyboard or a virtual keyboard on the touchscreen. The iPhone has had its fair share of criticism from those who say the virtual keyboard is too difficult […]

Should you be a fan of old computer keyboards and want to wear bits of them about your person, take a look at Culutrerevolution’s Etsy shop because there are plenty of rings to choose from.

Food keyboard: chocolate and biscuits

Food and IT go hand in hand. If you manage to combine both in to one item you’re on the right path. I had to grin when I saw this s’mores keyboard. Sadly there is no indication of any functionality or if it really is made out of food or just plastic. Seems like we’ll […]

Half-functional keyboard pants for typing on the go

Firstly let me say that, as a Brit, the first mental image I had upon reading about “keyboard pants” wasn’t the best, but once I saw a picture it all became clear. That still doesn’t mean I fully understand why anyone would want a QWERTY keyboard – a pink, flexible, half-functional silicone keyboard – split […]

ASUS goes wireless with the Eee Keyboard PC

The Eee Keyboard PC reminds me of the days when all the computer components were built in underneath the keyboard and you hooked it up to a TV – well, except that this version is a lot slimmer and faster, you can connect it to a high definition TV, it can work wirelessly, and it […]

Many people dream of a romantic diner by candlelight and a bouquet of roses for Valentine’s Day. Your geek usually can be satisfied with much less: a pack of Mountain Dew cans, free pizza delivery and small gizmos. But what does your geek REALLY want?

Steampunk keyboard

I just saw this really old-school computer keyboard that evokes the best steampunk novels and movies. The original keyboard was an IBM M-15 ergonomic keyboard that was technically gutted and given such treatments as violet LEDs, leaf patterns in brass, and a burgundy wrist pad. It even has a touchpad mouse in the center.
