Hi,

I'm selling a Touchstream LP on Ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... &rd=1&rd=1). It's used but in excellent condition and includes the latest firmware.

And check the shipping charge! Maybe he/she just bought a new PSP -- and needs to recoup funds -- fast!

$850... "Buy it Now"

Postby optimist1125 » 19 Nov 2006, 05:57

Someone must have really wanted it! And a brand new eByayer, at that.

Good for the seller. Having sold two of these myself, I can say the average going rate is around $500, so the seller should feel extremely lucky they found a buyer so stupid.

Wow. It was hard enough justifying the $350 to buy one of these new; now, I have to justify turning down $850 to keep it...?

Update on Yahoo Touchstream Dvorak Sales...

Postby optimist1125 » 22 Nov 2006, 15:01

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 shipped.]

Would anyone care to comment on usability of the Norwegian/Danish layout?

:roll: As a touch-typist, you can just ignore what's printed on the surface. The firmware and the MultiTouch Editor are not aware of that. Your language selection is what makes the effective layout when you type.

You can also paint the whole surface in black like this: :wink:

This is not Danish but Norwegian: the placement of the Æ and Ø keys are swapped, everything else is the same. Here is an image of the actual layout, from the FW official website:

There is also a larger version of this image.

I have a TSLP (DK) myself, and being Danish it's great for me. If you're neither Danish nor Norwegian, then nevermind. As Ivan said, you should not be looking anyway, but if you do, you will be rather confused.

There are many sublte differences between US and DK/NO layouts, especially with keys like %&$()<>'*^~´` so if you use these and don't know them by heart, you're in for a challenge!

Added: Here are more layouts:

Thanks for the information, I've been doing a bit of research myself. It seems to me that the differences aren't insurmountable.

Most of my typing is based around alphanumerics and the programmers punctution pad which I seem to use instinctively.

I was thinking this may make a good backup keyboard that will not go for a rediculous price (unless I get in a bidding war with Torben :D).

just maybe...

Postby Minox » 24 Jan 2007, 22:15

If it is built like my silver MacNTouch, then you could just change the cable. Would have to remove the tabs too...

Apparently the cable is a copper foil ribbon on Kapton tape. It has 4 traces with the same pitch as the USB standard and terminate on one end in a 20 pin 1mm pitch for the ZIF socket inside the board.

Looking at the L board and the cable that goes from the board INTO the L board you do not NEED the 20 pin milling. Just a ribbon with 4 traces at the right pitch should work everywhere.

I would love to find a way to non-destructively replace the short cable on the white MacNTouch with a longer cable (copper foil ribbon, as you say). Removing the tabs in pretty easy with a metal file (needed to do what with my original MacNTouch that had a too long tab at the top).

I would love to be able to reuse my old white MacNTouch, either in another laptop or stand-alone.

That is a different one. There were two on Wednesday; one from Montreal, and one from Iowa.
