I knew a co-worker who swore by those misshapen "ergonomic" keyboards.  I never quite understood them until I saw the Kinesis Advantage keyboard about 10 years ago in person.  I was intrigued by the dual concave shape and layout.  I finally got to try the latest version, the Advantage2.

One feature I miss on my iPhone is the LED "blinky" that lets you know if you've got a message waiting, missed call, etc.  This was one of my favorite Blackberry features.  What if you could add some light to your computer in the same way?  Today I've got my hands on the Luxafor Flag… Read More
