Thursday Reading List

  • A keyboard without key labels [NYT]
    Supposedly for geeks, the keyboard features nothing printed on the keys. Apparently the keyboard also causes increases in typing speed, since all users have to memorize the keys. Each key is also "weighted by location to be more or less resistant to touch." If you have $80 to spare, buy it here.

    I'm still more interested in the dvorak.

  • Loud, Proud, Unabridged: It Is Too Reading! [NYT]
    This article from the NYT examines the increasing popularity of audio books. Is listening to a book equivalent to "reading" one? Hmm, another use for the ipod!
