Hi everyone... from Linda Webb

Greetings from the greater Cleveland, Ohio area...

Anyone have an LP or ST QWERTY for sale?

I am a writer with carpal tunnel.
Would consider trying DVORAK as well.

"Dicey"... redux

No harm meant. Rather than thinking about the individual, I was thinking about the zero bids and the whole shipping thing, resulting in apparently no activity.

I second that!

I'm an end user with carpal tunnel who in fact just sent a defective Touchstream back to Fingerworks. Their partial refund check -- if and when it arrives -- will help me try to buy another. But if I have to pay hugely inflated eBay prices, it won't happen. I just can't afford that. How sad that thi...

Refund time by Fingerworks?

Greetings all. I regretfully sent in my backup Touchstream LP recently at Fingerworks' request as "not repairable". They offered what I considered to be a reasonable refund -- pending their receipt of the product. No offer of repair or replacement was made. Anyone have experience with this since the...

Check arrived from Austin... amount as promised...
It took 13 days; not bad by any business standards.

Next gens... Fingerworks...

So, has anyone heard of the next generation of zero-force, or of anything like -- or better than -- Fingerworks yet? If it weren't for the eBay gouging, I'd collect several more Touchstreams and iGestures, since I've been working in IT with CTS for 20 years, and you can't always use Dragon for knowl...

Over $600.00...

Please allow me to vent. Just deferred on that eBay auction... Obscene at $630.00 @ close... I could only go to $600, and that was a stretch. I'm not a "collector"; rather, I am a writer, technology reviewer, and IT person who needs this type of input technology in order to make a continued living w...

Middle Ages for Keyboards...

I have to agree with you, Ivan, regarding where there is yet to go with keyboards. Considering most of the computing world uses no better than an ancient, enhanced typewriter keyboard 100+ years later, you're right; it'll probably be a while. Has anyone played with the laser keyboard that projects a...

Amazon & Fingerworks

It seems everyone thinks the worst, but here's what I think: DVORAK didn't sell as well as QWERTY, so they are dumping the inventory -- either via Apple, or per contract, via Fingerworks. I do believe they have them, but I also think the lead times are despicable. But, supply and demand being what i...

OK, I'll add crossed toes... I've one on order as well.

But since my username has a measure of optimism, I'll say they are in stock -- and we will receive them.

The only question is why so long? Perhaps a third party is doing fulfillment...

Any results from Amazon?

Just curious whether anyone who ordered a Dvorak keyboard via Amazon has yet received it?

Update on Yahoo Touchstream Dvorak Sales...

This line was added to my purchase listing: "Amazon Export Sales, Inc. " Before, it was blank, or maybe just said "Amazon". Now I'm wondering if these keyboards had been designated for sale outside the US, so now they set up a company at Amazon to clear them. Thoughts, anyone? [BTW, it still hasn't ...

Amazon/Dvorak Order Delay ... Redux

Spoke with an Amazon customer service rep just now ... Apparently source "A" can't supply quickly or can't supply, so they are continuing to source other suppliers. He did NOT encourage me to cancel, and promised email updates as soon as they knew more. [I guess that's optimistic, overall...] Just t...

Maybe not a scam... just an error

I think these new vendors come online with Amazon, get into their "what can we sell" inventory system, see a part number, and check to say they want to sell it. Rather than a scan, I think the issue is more with Amazon and a problem in the Amazon inventory system than with the resellers. I wish all ...
