PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The Minuum keyboard, through its simplicity, improves your touchscreen typing. Existing keyboards leave you barely enough screen to interact with your apps, and you can't enjoy typing on them. Minuum eliminates the visual clutter of archaic mobile keyboards by adapting the keyboard to a single dimension." You have to watch the video. This is yet another example of a strength of more open platforms - like Android - that often gets overlooked: the ability to experiment with core aspects of the operating system. Whenever someone says there are no Android-exclusive applications, they conveniently overlook things like this. No other platform has stuff like this, and I certainly miss this experimentation on my 8X.

Too bad the "Linux Penguin" key (to replace the Windows logo key) offered by DasKeyboard isn't compatible with S models, though it'd still be pointless for me even if they did, since I run OpenBSD not Linux.

I want a key that says "Mod 4" ;)


For the record, it's expensive, but there is a manufacturer of Cherry MX Brown keyboards who will print whatever you want on that key.

I'm not sure why I forgot about it, but WASD will actually print up individual custom keycaps for Cherry MX switches too.

http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/printed-keycap-sing...

If you want "mod4" on the key, the custom text-printed option is the cheapest way to get it and it'll end up costing you about $11 plus shipping for a pair of them.

...or if you just want to ditch the Windows logo, they'll sell you a pair of blank ones in a color of your choice for $2.50 plus shipping.
