Q: What do developers love more than developing?
A: Expensive accessories!!!
This week we’re talking about our Christmas in July lists. Dream keyboards, mouses, office furniture and tablets…oh my!
Lots of links below. Click and drool.
- Joe’s favorite is The CODE Keyboard
- Mike’s favorite is any old plain keyboard – previous was the Logitech MK520 and more recently the Logitech Wave MK550
- Allen is partial to the ergonomic keyboards. Previously had the Adesso Tru-Form (great idea, poor quality), wants the Kinesis Advantage USB, but settled for the Microsoft Comfort 5000
