Filed well and truly under the ‘things-that-would-have-been-useful-on-Saturday” department, the university have now given me a fold-out Bluetooth mini-keyboard to play with. It’s for use with the PDA that I’m also (still) borrowing from them, and it does make writing much easier than tapping letters on the screen or using its handwriting recognition. If I’d had this on Saturday composing these two entries would have taken much less time.
My only complaint so far is that it’s a little flimsy and I’m worried about breaking it, but it does fold down into a very small package and would be useful for note-taking in lectures, for example. Which is the intention.
