OK, let's start something here on your first topic that could be used as an example in the Wiki about it: create a new XML file manually and upload that into the FW device Hopefully, that would be something that proved to be useful. I have something that qualifies for me. It has to do with text poin...

I personally don't expect any new iGesture pads or TouchStream LP-like products out from Apple, seems that would go beyond the "basic technology." The facts is that The Fingerworks Adventure has been broken anyway. You can't look at it anymore as the early stages of some success-story. The magic is...

I agree with all Rqyteqto said. I don't have an iGesture or a NumberPad, meaning that I can't experiment on how far one can cheat with customization. The hardware signature sensed by the editor when it starts makes that you can't use it with these boards as you would with a TouchStream. This means t...

I do miss the double 00 key on the 2030 ... adding one. Why don't you add it yourself with MyGesture Editor? I don't have an iGesture numpad but I think that you should be able to mimic the 2030's layout. Let us know if this would do the trick. Should you be just missing something about TapArea adj...

Thank you Shawn, this is a real peace of informative review :) Dealing with a TouchStream makes you realize how weird normal keyboard can be.

I agree with the "blow in" option because the focused high pressure you install will make cool air blow right in front of the fan. On the other side, when you "blow out", you concentrate warm air outside of the case, which is worth nothing. Heat will be extracted all right but cool air will not be c...
