    This one types very nice on a flat tabletop. The key placing and spacing
    is exactly like any standard PC keyboard so there's no learning curve. The
    only part that doesn't roll is the little box over the top of the 10-key
    pad on the right side of it where the USB cord comes out.

    This unit is made for hospitals and industry where they must be subjected
    to high temperature sterilization and flushing with sterilizing cleaners.
    It's totally fluid proof and inert.

    The keys have a tactile feedback "click" like regular keys you can feel as
    you press down. Not mushy at all, even though the keytops will "roll" and
    are not that stiff. Touch typing fast is really easy. $45.

    Sorry, but you're really taking the biscuit for "not getting the hint
    despite being repeatedly bashed over the head with it". Read the very
    first quoted content line in this post again!

    I have one of those laser-projector virtual keyboards that allow you
    to use almost any flat surface as a keyboard, but unfortunately the
    software guys on the team apparently weren't as good as their hardware
    guys, and they fucked up the Bluetooth implementation, making it
    incompatible with almost everything ever made.

    Yet it's "perfect". If that's not fanboi thinking, I don't know what is.

    I guess that you've never heard of using hyperbole for humorous purposes.
    Well, since you're essentially a humorousles person, I shouldn't be
    surprised.

  11. The ipad does not have a USB port. I may have mentioned that in the
    past.

    So you need an adaptor. Which you may forget at home. I may have
    mentioned that in the past...[/QUOTE]

    So you keep the adaptor plugged into the keyboard's USB cable. Problem
    solved.

    that can only mean that the ipad is not a computer.

  14. No, it's designed to be plugged into a Type A USB port. That could be
    any number of devices, including USB extenders.

    Silly me! Of course, why didn't I think of that. Once an adaptor is
    attached to another adapter, they can't get lost any more!

    Yes, silly you for thinking that a keyboard's cable is an adaptor.

    It does help to apply a bit of forethought to using devices.

    Sorry if that makes your head hurt.

    iPad's USB port is a peripheral port, not an OTG port. It's designed to be
    a peripheral, not a computer.....why it won't print.

    Wrong. You can use USB headsets and keyboards with it.

    But at least you're now acknowledging that it has a USB port. There may be
    hope for you yet, but I won't hold my breath.
