Phill Kenoyer

I made it. This is a great web site and forum. Much better than the actual FW site. Anyway, I had a iGesture pad but it was defective when I bought it. Had some trouble getting FW to respond but finally did. They offered to replace it, but I opted to return it and get my money back. What I'm looking...

Re: Summary as of April 26, 2005

It has been speculated that the company that bought the technology could be Apple or Wacom. I seriously doubt that Apple or Wacom has bought them. First Apple is first a hardware and second a software company. Also, they don't seem to have any interest in technology that is harder to use. Second Wa...

Still Looking.

Currently I'm putting in 16 hour days on a standard keyboard and Apple mouse. This has been going on for about five weeks now. I'm starting to feel the burn. If anyone gets a line on a Silver Dvorak, I'm interested.

Thanks!

Pain Question

Hello, I have a question. I don't have a FWTS yet, but I'm looking. My situation is that I'm using a standard keyboard and mouse. I used to use my right had for the mouse, but suffered a lot of wrist pain. I switched to my left for the mouse and had an alright time until recently. Right now my entir...

Trackball

Back in the day I used the Kensington Expert Mouse and I loved it. I was hunting for a mouse a few months ago and stumbled on the iGesture and TS. I wish I happened upon them earlier because now that I really want one they are not available. :-(

Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: ghost in my cursor

Hello, I am a new iGesture touchpad user and (surprise surprise) no one at Fingerworks answered my cry for help! Your pretty much screwed on this. I was able to send my back for a full refund where I bought it. But basically, it's hosed, FW is hosed, it's all hosed. Good luck, hope you can get your...

The last known Silver Dvorak LP for sale in the world. You think it will get up to $800?

I sure wish that I could afford $100's over the original price... I sure would like one.

Alternatives?

Well, now that Fingerworks is bust, what alternatives are out there?

I'm looking to replace my standard keyboard and mouse for something that will cut down on my RSI. Right now it's going up my arms and into my shoulders.

After reading a bit more, looks like it has problems with the Mac. Namely, the Option key is missing.

DataHand

I've been looking at it again. It's so big and clunky looking. I don' think I'll be happy with it. If it was sleek and stylish then I could probably get into it. But it reminds me of two bricks where my keyboard should be. Why did Fingerworks have to go out of business... arg... two more weeks and I...

Re: Which keyboard?

For me, I'm going to try the Typematrix EZ-Reach 2030 http://www.typematrix.com/ezr2030/ in DVORAK. This looks like a great solution for a keyboard. It's small, slim, decent price, and comes in Dvorak. The only problems I see is that it does not look too Mac friendly. No command key (uses Start), n...

I went ahead and bought the TypeMatrix 2030

So I just went ahead and bought one today. I should see it in a few days, if not sooner. I guess I'll see when it gets here. Thanks for the suggestions. So far this one looks to be the best that I've seen so far. Oh, and the support so far has been top notch. They answered all my questions right away.

Type Matrix

I received my new EZ-Reach keyboard today. Wow what a difference it is to type on. I'm learning Dvorak at the same time and its very slow going right now. One thing I forgot about was my mouse. It cant plug into my keyboard any more, so I had to get an extension for it to work. Typing time: about 5 ...

EZ-Reach

It's been a few days for me now, and I have all the keys down but I'm still very slow. I'm also finding out that the missing Mac keys are a pain to deal with. Simple things like adjusting the volume and ejecting CD's is not so simple any more. The one thing that really bugs me is the placement of th...

Mac-N-Touch USB?

Wasn't there at one time a USB version of the Mac-N-Touch that was intended to set over top of the keyboard? Or was hat just the LP?

I think that the Mac-N-touch would be great as a desktop Mac keyboard.

Nope, can't deal with it. I'm sending it back for refund. Basically, I can't handle not having the Mac keys on the keyboard. Volume, Eject, and even the Command keys are very important. I'm using the Kensington slim keyboard (temporary) right now and it's a very nice keyboard. Even has keys for iTun...

I can't believe that the keyboards are selling for $700 on eBay! That's just crazy.

Isn't Apple using the Alps Glidepoint touch pad? Doesn't it have multi-touch capabilities?
