Keyboards

Logitech

A friend and I are having a chat discussion on the merits of a “tactile” or mechanical click keyboard over the now conventional laptop low force silent type. These are stand alone bluetooth and not laptop built-in.

In particular, the comparison is the tactile KB, a Keychron K2 and the Logitech K800 “soft” style. Both brands produce many variations and we are not micro-dissecting the variation within a brand. Just the keyboard action styles.

I am not a super-fanatic about either style.

Keychron

Presently, the keyboards here are all the Logitech brand and are soft or quite […] Continue reading » Keyboards

Bad Skinny

My world of “science” knowledge sources seems to be filled with a minimum eighty percent bad information. In the Navy we called it “bad skinny” I had a hard time finding this term on the internet until I defined it as “the skinny”. Many examples can be found when you ask properly.

That is a part of the problem. Knowing how to ask a proper question to get the proper information. 

Also common. Asking questions that only fit the answers expected. Shaping facts to fit preconcieved notions. All bad science. 

But this is far from the real problem.

The world hears more expressed opinions rather than […] Continue reading » Bad Skinny

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

Facebook 2020

I did some heavy editing on Facebook yesterday. Had to dig deeply into the back-end and clear out all the standard settings on advertising preference, privacy, people I don’t want to “follow” (I never chose to follow any of them). I am so tired of Facebook trying to analyze my activities and judge what I want (they want) me to “see”.

I am this close  –> . <– to shutting down Facebook again for at least 6 months, a year, maybe forever…  For now, I can check in, check on my family and (real) friends and check back off in a minute or two, if nothing new from them. […] Continue reading » Facebook 2020

Barbarian Tweets

CONAN the Complainer

I am constantly amazed by the lack of language literacy from the people whom represent many of the complainers posting negative user reports and user forum comments. They often struggle to put two words together in a logical sequence. Much like a barbarian tweeting.

But then, one does not need to be literate in English to complain.

Some are obviously struggling with English because it is not their native language. English is definitely tough to master. I don’t fault those who try to communicate in a second language.

What I can see is that many of the poor writers are also the most […] Continue reading » Barbarian Tweets
