Hi. I'm a Unix Administrator, mathematics enthusiast, and amateur philosopher. This is where I rant about that which upsets me, laugh about that which amuses me, and jabber about that which holds my interest most: Unix.

Testing a new toy

Posted 11-30-2013 at 12:24 AM by rocket357

The other day while running a maintenance for a customer in which we had settled on communicating via IM, I noted that typing on my android was a pain. Sure, the on screen keyboard is ok if I'm texting a quick message or typing out a short explanation of the final deal, but going from my laptop to the android and back for each step was getting I figured it was time to grab a bluetooth keyboard and wire it up to a Galaxy tablet and test it out...only my wife beat me to it and picked one up for me for Christmas.

That's what I'm typing on now, in fact (long story short: we voted to open one present early haha). It didn't help during the maintenance (which went off without issue), but moving forward I think this will be the way to go heh.

Types pretty smoothly, smaller than a standard PC keyboard, but that doesn't seem to affect my typing speed very much. Now I just need to test it with my IM software and hope that works as well as typing for my blog.
