Keyboard of the Month - October - Nominations
« on: Wed, 30 October 2019, 13:00:42 »
We made it! A nomination thread before the month has ended!

The poll is still going for September so I haven't got a photo to put up here, but thank you everyone for going through and getting me some nominations.

Here, we roll the dice again. Please remember that the board must have been posted on the forum in the month of October to qualify.

Happy hunting!
Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

This one just reminds me of some of the old terminals we used to use.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
