How does that compare to the newer Microsoft Natural Keyboard? I won't give up on a split keyboard, but I might consider a new one. The key labels on the MS Natural Keyboard wear out too fast. I don't need them, but it doesn't look nice with worn labels.

How much typing force is needed? How easy is it to clean? How quiet is it?

Why does my TV need to boot anyway?

Most TVs run firmware of some sort. Even CRT. The newer CRT TVs did not have a physical dial for changing channels, they display channel numbers on screen, and they even have a few menu options. Guess what runs that?

It sounds like you're not buying good LCD TVs.

They had advantages when they were calibrated. But for operational speed, a UI that was designed for fat-fingering is probably the actual revolution rather than the screen itself. I guess pinch to zoom and one finger 2D scrolling is a part of that as well. So it's more a capacitive screen tied with all the UI tools to use it effectively. Have to hand it to Apple, they did it first.

I'd like to see that too. They just haven't come out with many that taste very good.

I go to McDonalds when I don't have time to prepare something and I don't want to spend too much on convenience. I often use that an excuse to eat bad food, but it's far from the only reason to go.

They're also really bad at marketing those options as flavorful foods. In researching my reply, I see that they have a pretty good looking southwest chicken salad. Probably lacking in heat, but that's only a minor complaint...

What's annoying is the perception that salad is the only kind of food that qualifies as healthy.

You are in a maze of little twisting passages, all different.

Working...
