Dumb Little Man

It could be a TV, computer, gaming console, smartphone, radar detector, controller, keyboard, and the list goes on.

How To Make Your Own Standing Desk and Save $600

Dumb Little Man

My measurement was roughly 40 inches, the approximate point that your keyboard should be to provide a comfortable working area for productivity. Once my wife and I safely set our existing desk onto the risers, we needed a few adjustments to get the keyboard closer to elbow height. With wood to purchase or asking for remnant pieces from the hardware store, the project could still be completed for around $20. Do you need to learn how to make your own standing desk ?

My New iPad

Simple Productivity Blog

So last week, after much thought and saving, I purchased an iPad. My reason for purchasing a tablet is that I often get writing in at odd moments: during lunch, waiting during piano lessons, ideas after lights out. Unfortunately, the keyboard is slightly off – the up arrow is where a touch typist reaches for the shift key. So using the computer meant that I had to carry an external keyboard with me. A usable keyboard.

How I Almost Dumped the CLIQ: Review – Part 3

The Marq

Last weekend, the keyboard lights went out. The ALT works the same way as the ALT key on your computer keyboard. It makes the alternate numbers and characters on the keyboard available. As you can imagine, I couldn’t use the keyboard at night. In any case, I researched the issue online and found that some of the new CLIQs had defective keyboards. It helps that California insures we have 30 days to return or exchange a newly purchased phone.
