We already covered the announcement of the new Matias tactile-keyboards but couldn't resist descending into the show floor in order to get a quick hands-on with the Canadian-made kit. The USB-powered boards contain a Bluetooth module and a physical button (with a blue LED) that you can switch between typing on your desktop and wirelessly to your device.
The proliferation of gadgets without keyboards has been explosive over the last few years, as have the options for keyboards to increase productivity. The Surface and Surface Pro series, the numerous Windows, Android and iOS tablets…all of them call for a keyboard to really maximize productivity with these devices.
With all of the new iOS 8 keyboard apps, we're seeing new functions, languages and features. Custom Keyboard (US$0.99) gives the standard iOS keyboard a completely new look based on what you want. It's appearing in the App Store today.
Custom Keyboard provides control of backgrounds, colors, fonts, shadows and even animations for key pop-ups. It's easy to use, and is quite effective.
Bluetooth keyboard cases for iPads may be a convenient way to always have a keyboard with your tablet, but they do have problems. They are all undersized keyboards, usually with non-standard arrangements of the non-alphabetic keys, and they aren’t always easy to type on, especially for touch typists.
Typing on a touchscreen is more difficult that typing on normal keyboards because the smooth, flat screen offers you no physical clues to let you know if you’ve even touched a key as you type. The Phorm case changes that by overlaying physical clues onthe touchscreen when you need it.
With the arrival of the iPad Air 2 last fall, many case manufacturers went back to the drawing board to produce new products that would accommodate the slightly thinner tablet. One of the favorite keyboard cases for those of us here at TUAW has always been the ClamCase Pro (US$169.00), and that case has recently been updated for the latest member of the iPad family.
The first question you should be asking yourself - after you've decided on a Samsung Galaxy S6 - is whether or not you want to go with the Edge. Your choice will influence the rest of your life in the smartphone environment. While the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have a LOT of the same elements, they present ever-so-slightly different aims for Samsung in the smartphone universe.
For my home office I use an iMac, which normally sits at the wrong height for my posture since I place my keyboard directly on the same surface as where my iMac stands. It would be nice to raise it up a bit, and also add a small USB hub since I only have four usb ports built into my machine.

Many people choose to use a keyboard case with their tablet so that they can type faster and more comfortably. Some of those keyboards have small touchpads on them like notebooks, but most don’t. Having to move your hands from the keyboard to the screen to move the cursor around or touch links can be time consuming when you are working.
Since 1984, not a lot has changed in terms of the two things that we use to converse with our desktop and laptop computers - keyboards and mice/trackpads. That's why when fellow TUAW editor Dave Caolo pointed me towards a fascinating Kickstarter project named KeyMouse , I thought I'd better pass along the news to TUAW readers.

It's usually released to reporters early under embargo, but this is the age of the internet and the White Houseposted it for everyone to readjust a few minutes ago.
You could be easily forgiven if you've forgotten, or more likely didn't know, that Microsoft just launched it's own smart fitness band. The company itself didn't make such a big fuss out of the Microsoft Band and it was probably smart to do so. The initial experience that we got from our review of the device was nothing to write home about. At least not yet.
