MX Keys User Report

I am using a new keyboard for my MAC-mini. Made by Logitech, it’s called the “MX Keys for Mac”. Yeah, it’s a very long name. Check out the specifics HERE. No need to duplicate the information in this computer linking age.

They also have near identical versions of “MX Keys” for other OS computers.

Logitech makes a great variety of keyboards, mice and accessories. All pretty good. I have several other Logitech types.

This post is because I am very pleased with how this MAC version keyboard “feels” in operation.

Back in ancient history, the only “good” keyboard was the “Cherry” clickey, long travel mechanical […] Continue reading » MX Keys User Report

Keeping on Key

Just received my new keyboard for the MAC-mini.  My first keyboard started fading in and out of consciousness. It was a Bluetooth running on dry battery. I put in new batteries and it made no difference.

I started thinking it might have something damaged from the lightning strike. All the electronics around it were damaged, needing replaced. I cannot prove it was lighting as it has (had) no physical connection to any of the devices. Just Bluetooth radio.

The new keyboard is a Logitech MX KEYS for MAC. Yeah, that’s what it is called. It’s also Bluetooth and is working perfectly. The MAC-mini is brand new […] Continue reading » Keeping on Key

Computer Update

Lost both my Apple MAC-mini and my Intel NUC-7 due to a lightning strike into my home office. Most all electronic equipment within the entire house was obliterated. In the office – two additional, older, large case, built-up computers were also destroyed. One I called “Ironsides” and the other named “Sandbox”.

All four computers were in use but the MAC (macOS) and the NUC (WIN10) are my primary systems. Ironsides is a WIN10 OS and Sandbox is a Linux OS – LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition)

I bought a new MAC-mini replacement and using it now. A back-up called “Time Machine” on an undamaged external 1TB […] Continue reading » Computer Update

A “Small” iPhone Update

iPhone 4S

This iPhone 4S is again running at full charge. It’s now had its second battery transplant. Presently on its third battery since new in October 2011. Not too shabby for an almost eight-year-old phone.

The battery cost is between $10.00 to $15.00 depending on the tools ordered with the battery. Micro-drivers are necessary as well as good eyes and steady hands. Both of those are starting to run out on me, just like the old batteries. Ha!

That cost and a little effort sure beats the heck out of a large new phone that I don’t want or need. The new phones are like carrying around […] Continue reading » A “Small” iPhone Update

Fat MAC

The Apple MiniMAC computer has become my go-to first choice for my daily computer needs. It is equal for the tasks to any of my other machines except OS specific apps. I haven’t abandoned the Linux or WIN10 OS systems.

There have been a few quirks and I did suffer from an invasive trojan virus. So, the macOS is not bullet proof.  Firewalls are up and the fort is again secure. Just have to practice safe Internet access.

The folks at Apple are not shy about overcharging buyers for memory needs. Both RAM and SSD are grossly overpriced buying from Apple. The SSD in the MACmini is soldered […] Continue reading » Fat MAC
