TI Keyboard: More Information Released
Posted by Eric on 16 June 2002, 08:40 GMT

TI has finally released new information on something that should have come out many years ago, the TI Keyboard. The keyboard, which runs on 3 AAA batteries and contains many nifty features such as compatibility with Microsoft Word, will be available in the fall.

WHY AAA's TI?
They are more expensive than the more powerful AA's, and AA's last longer.

More complaints... I don't understand this community

So much complaining.
AAA Batteries- Triple A batteries are smaller and make it a bit easier to fit calcs in your pocket. Sheesh, there are Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeables.

The Keyboard- I'm a bit dissapointed it costs $40. I expected it to be more in the range of 20 dollars. But I am excited. This will make it far easier to type notes. The problem with these 3rd party keyboards that use PS2 accesory ports, is that they drain a LARGE amount of power. Thus you lose your battery life very quickly. Ti isn't using a PS2 keyboard. So it's not gonna suck up as much power. TI is NOT ripping the ideas of the third party.

I just don't understand all the fuss from this community. What's the deal?

It's not the idea of a PS/2 keyboard that TI's ripping off ... it's the idea of a keyboard. The community came up with the idea first before TI decided that they had a potential cash cow and stole it for their own use.

AAA batteries are better because-
They are smaller.
They are cheaper.

(God knows why,but here they are 99p a packet of 4, and AAs are £1.20- but I buy the £1.60 version- they last about a month!)

Hate to spoil your fun. But If I'm banned I can get a new account. I have multiple e-mail adresses. Besides I'm more on topic than all this parading buisness. I'm just expressing my feelings about the ti Keyboard

Ever heard of cookies? They're fun to eat & can block you from a site.

Actually, they could make a PERL script to get his IP adress and ban that IP address from the site

If he uses dialup he could just disconnect and reconnect and he'd have a new IP address.

How are you expressing your feelings about the keyboard? By trying to get everyone and his dog to play Megaman 86?

YAY! Let's have a GANG_BANG!

j/k... there's no women here so it wouldn't work in the first place.

Anyway, I agree. There is a lot of pointless blathering idiocy on this board... but that makes it fun for some people (such as myself), especially those who come here to see just how slow a human brain can be (such as myself).
