I keep looking at these, but that Return is just hideous.
What the researchers found is that after controlling for gender, age, education level, and ideology, NFC [Need for Chaos] was strongly correlated with a willingness to spread hostile rumors online. Younger, less educated men were more likely to have a strong NFC, as were people who were lonely and perceived themselves as lacking social status. NFC is associated with support for Donald Trump, which makes sense. Both Trump and to a lesser, and in a qualitatively different way, Sanders offered the 2016 electorate — including all the susceptible, alienated and disenchanted folks who comprise it — a radical departure from the norm, giving voice to sentiments that had probably been bubbling in their followers’ heads for quite a long time.

The responses to three of the statements in particular were “staggering,” the paper says: 24 percent agreed that society should be burned to the ground; 40 percent concurred with the thought that “When it comes to our political and social institutions, I cannot help thinking ‘just let them all burn’ ”; and 40 percent also agreed that “we cannot fix the problems in our social institutions, we need to tear them down and start over.”

"For most customers requests,Splash key \| 1.5x switch to Gray now,same as Tab.Pls note it" - deal breaker!
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s 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

Yes, the Enter (AKA Return) is somewhat artsy-craftsy, as my wife would say. But the whole thing's a fantasy, a stylized-retro thing... So I just consider it part of the creative design.

And they certainly aren't the only Carbon set with that feature.

Sorry, Row, didn't see your post. Maybe you're better at understanding Chinglish than me—what the heck does that mean?

BTW, the 104 set has been bumped up a dollar. At $25.99 shipped, tho, it still seems like an awesome deal.

Think it means the Splash (|\) key (above Enter) is now gray, same as the Tab key

(improvement as far as I'm concerned)
