Matias Tactile Pro Keyboard

I loved some of the older PC keyboards – I remember the IBMs with their wonderful clacky sound and proper switches (rather than conductive rubber bouncing off a PCB). They cost about £100 but they lasted indefinitely. Apple and Olivetti were the same in the early days. But everybody has economised now, which is why I’m rather tempted by the Matias Tactile Pro Keyboard, which deliberately tries to recreate the golden days.

Ancient and modern

I’m staying with friends at a wonderful house in Piedmont, CA, at present. CD took this photo of me this morning:

And then I drove down to Cupertino to visit a friend at Apple. Very nice campus they have there.
