Do you think maybe that iPhone users are hungry for third-party keyboards? It would be hard to argue otherwise after seeing the SwiftKey Keyboard for iPhone surpass 1 million downloads in less than 24 hours. SwiftKey is now the number one app in the U.S. free app charts, and it was all made possible thanks to third-party keyboard support baked into iOS 8. The iPhone has always had a decent stock keyboard, though SwiftKey is popular for its ability to learn your writing style to more accurately predict your next word, and also because it allows users to type by sliding from letter to letter with...

The virtual keyboard on Apple's iPhone line works pretty well, though if you're old school, you might still prefer a physical plank. Ryan Seacrest tried to rectify the situation by funding Typo, a keyboard case for the iPhone, but the end result looked a little too much like BlackBerry's iconic design. BlackBerry ultimately won a court order barring Typo Products from selling its $99 Typo Keyboard Case, prompting Seacrest to make a few tweaks. Now up for pre-order is the Typo 2. Like the original Typo, the Typo 2 is a keyboard case for the iPhone that runs $99. Barring any litigious action, the... Read more...
When Marcel Fernandes Filho was 13 years old, he smashed his Dell computer in a fit of rage because the monitor wouldn't stop flickering. Suddenly without a PC, the young teenager from Brazil began using his iPhone 3GS more often. Such began his journey to becoming the world's fastest texter, as recognized by Guinness World Records. Part promotional stunt (okay, a huge promotional stunt), Filho broke the texting record using Fleksy, a third-party custom keyboard available for Android and iOS devices. He wore a Fleksy t-shirt as he pecked away on his phone, typing "The razor-toothed piranhas of... Read more...

As a species, we've come a long way from the days of carving notes into stone. While our ancestors used chisel and rock, we now use keyboards to hammer out our thoughts and anything that needs to be documented. Some of us spend hours a day sitting in front of a PC, a large portion of which is dedicated to punching keystrokes at a frenzied pace. There's a good chance that your keyboard is actively used more than any other peripheral or accessory, save for your monitor, yet some people give little thought to their plank, as if to suggest that all keyboards are essentially the same. Professional... Read more...

Logitech is certainly no stranger to the living room. The company boasts a range of universal remotes and keyboards designed to help you navigate channels on your swank HDTV and HTPC, but up until now, the company was missing an illuminated keyboard option.

You won't find larger fans of mechanical keyboards than right here, which is why we're pretty pumped each time we see a company push the envelope in the space. Razer's the latest to do so, introducing a the Mechanical Switch. It's a mechanical keyboard technology engineered first for gaming, while most of the mechanical boards on the market cater first to typists.

When Logitech revealed its new Wireless All-in-One Keyboard TK820 last month, it immediately caught my eye. After upgrading my home theater PC to Windows 8, I've often thought it would be nice to take advantage of some of the new gesture controls while browsing the web and using my HTPC from the comfort of my couch. I looked at keyboards a little bit after upgrading but hadn't found quite what I wanted so I put the idea of getting a different keyboard on hold. When I was given the chance to test the TK820 for myself, I jumped at the opportunity and hoped this could be the keyboard I had been searching... Read more...
Microsoft has a new keyboard and mouse combo out called the Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop, and they don’t look like your average devices. Instead of a flat keyboard, the device is split into two sections, giving users a domed and angled typing surface. The idea is that the user’s wrists and forearms will be more relaxed and resist pronation; the curvature of the keyboard is designed to follow the curve of your fingertips for a more “natural feel” when typing. The mouse has the same concept in mind, and the circular device had the right and left buttons slid just a bit to the... Read more...
