Old Tech, New

I have used a wireless keyboard and mouse for many years, probably since they first arrived in the technoverse. Last week my son, Alex, got a new keyboard having neon colors, tactile keys, and a cord.

I was suitably impressed with the keyboard, and the price seemed doable. I went to Amazon to find my own magical tech. I found both a keyboard and mouse for less than he had paid.

Today the equipment arrived. There was some concern over USB ports on my computer, but I made it work with minimal rearranging. I had so forgotten the speed of a wired mouse. Speedy, speedy. The keyboard will take some adjustment because I have used an ergonomic one for so long.

I am so glad I did this. The speed of the keyboard is an upgrade, as is the mouse. The fun thing is the sound of the keys. I did not realize how much I had missed it. The neon glow is a plus.

Sometimes we lose when we go with the new technology. Retro can be the way to go.

  1. The main reason for getting a better keyboard is how much better they can feel when writing. I love my mechanical keyboard with ‘speed’ switches. Takes so little effort to press a key, exactly the way I like it. Enjoy your new setup!

    1. I was not planning to write in the evening, but I had to try out the keyboard. It is excellent. The writing went easier. I wish I had not stuck with the divided keyboard for so long. I did not realize the speed I lost.

      Tha,k you so much for commenting.
