[Bilde:100619_152725_0.png]A Bit of a Rant -
Recently, my favorite keyboard, a Duo Comfort by Logitech that was
connected to my Macintosh, bit the dust. I think I probably over keyed
the keys, just wore it out. Logitech makes - well, used to make - the
very best keyboards in the world.
The advantage to this keyboard was its "wave" shape and its contour. It
just worked so well. It was comfortable, efficient, and had multiple
special function keys which could be so easily configured in the system
I purched what was billed as replacement, only to find that it no longer
can be matched to the Macintosh as it, the K350 is designed as a Windows
keyboard. Special function keys are not programmable, and the keyboard is
The available "unifying" software is anything but unifying and I have
written to Logitech and opened a case on three occassions. It turns out
that Logitech makes only one Macintosh specific keyboard, and that is the
solar powered K750, and even it does not allow for the reassignment of
keyboard keys to special functions. Ah, there are lots of times that I
like to enlarge the screen for a easier reading.
First, I don't understand why Apple doesn't or can't make an ergonomic
Second, I don't understand why Logitech is unable to use its programming
expertise to allow for key mapping on the K350 through what it claims is
unifying software. Something must be afoot.
It seems impossible to find an ergonimic keyboard which will work
successfully with a Macintosh, made by Apple, the world's largest, most
wealthy, and single most rich computer technology company in the world.
Why doesn't this make sense to me?
