What is the cringiest keyboard-related item you've ever seen?

Keeb...
You know how some people hate the sound of nails on a chalkboard, that's me with the word "keeb".  The same people probably use shortened and combined names like Benifer and Jlaw as well.

There is no way to make keyboards cool, even with slang. Sorry.

that reminds me, Mandolin totally just walked with my money and I never got my cap. I wonder if anyone got their cap from that scam.

I had multiple dealings with Mandolin and all went perfectly.

But what’s wrong with inequality, anyway? Answers to this question are rarely satisfying, but they do serve as a political litmus test about the kind of inequality that matters. A Marxist might concern herself with how economic inequality divides society into classes, allowing capitalists to wield wealth as a weapon, disempower workers, and extract their labor. The humanitarian position tends to prioritize sufficiency of resources and basic rights; feminists, environmentalists, and advocates for the undocumented, the disabled, and minorities would say social inequalities matter, too, and that part of the problem with economic inequality is that it reinforces them.
New research has shown us that economic, social, racial, and gender inequality are inextricably linked—and that the effect of high inequality is to create even more inequality. Many other economists have shown that high levels of inequality hurt democracy because, among other things, they allow rich people and corporations to buy the support of politicians.

Leslieann ?
It's not two names chopped down to make one nonsensical one. Also, the ann was added because Leslie in some cultures is primarily male while in others it's primarily female. Lesley also has the same problem, but reversed.

I personally like the keeblade as a keyboard case, that picture is a bit over the top with colours tho. Also the guy who made it is a genuinely nice guy.

no I think it goes to the invention of Keeb and the website that helped promote it. I hear the word and automatically think of a 15 year old trying to be cool in front of his friends.

Dont understand the resistance to Keeb,

It's a good contractions..  k e y b o a ,,  that in itself is hard to type because of the left right left right left right timing..

keeb  is  right , left.. done..



-- trying to be cool in front of his friends. --

Only one who is SUPER insecure would ever Imagine SOMEONE ELSE trying to look cool.. then h8 on that ..

Think about the pathways here.


There is nothing mechanical wrong or inefficient about  "Keeb"..

Keeb has good efficiency; but I just don't like the sound of it. It's unpleasant to the ears. Board is just as efficient in terms of syllables, and in context as easily understandable; also much more pleasant sounding.

Also, it sounds like one of those made up lame drug names that you might see in some government or office power point on the dangers of illicit substances.

Idk... that's more like a regular keyboard which use beer cans for keycaps..

I guess we could call that a beer can keyboard..

Although would've liked to see at least 200% m0ar beer can used in the construction.
