Gadget Whore

If you've ever met me, you'll know I'm something of a gadget whore. It's probably a pretty good thing that I realize I have to sort of stick with in my budget (moreso now that my daughter starts school tomorrow), but otherwise I'd have way more gadgets than I do.

 

And I have a shit ton.

 

I'm typing this on my iPad mini. For which I search and searched for the perfect keyboard. The ClamCase Pro is about the closest to an all-in-one case/keyboard solution that I've found (After going through 3 or 4 different devices before settling on that one). But as of Saturday night, my mini is back in my brown leather-ish case and I'm typing on the Logitech K760. It's bluetooth and solar powered. The keys are full size but the keyboard is about the same footprint as my macbook or an apple keyboard (with no number pad). And there are three different bluetooth profiles that can be stored on it.

 

Which is important as it's also the keyboard I use for my little $60 Winbook tablet.

 

The Plot thickens. I got to thinking...if I'm going to carry a keyboard for that thing, why not carry one for ALL of the devices? Better still if it's the same one. So...I'm back to carrying the Logitech around.

 

It's all ebbs and flows, isn't it? I get geeked out about a gadget, I get it....I get all evangelistic about it....and then I put it on the shelf for a while. Oh, don't worry. I really dig the Clam Case. And I'm sure if I'm just taking a smaller bag and don't want to be bothered with a keyboard, I'll throw the mini back in that case. But for now, we'll let it cool down for a bit.

 

I find that my big melon grippers....aka my hands....need something of a bigger keyboard anyway. Especially if I'm going to be zoning out and just typing about bullshit things for any length of time.

 

Speaking of typing out bullshit things....cheers again for stopping by and checking out the blog.

 

This really is one of the posts that's in the 'there was no real point to this, I just wanted to make sure I could still bang out something larger than a Facebook status message' category.

 

Oh. And its lunch time. So...there's that.

 

 

Have a great rest of your day my friends!!
