Confessions of a Public Speaker
I saw the first sentence starting with "While there is a plethora of..." and rolled my eyes, and then died laughing when I saw it as a story tag. Thanks to whomever caused that laugh, it was appreciated.
Ridiculous Software Bug Workarounds?
Don't forget the best encoding detection bug ever --
Bush hid the facts / this app can break

Review of Das Keyboard
For $130 keyboards? Here is a review for a non-enthusiast:
"It is $130. Move along."
There is a price range with everything that might enter the realm of luxury in which most people are going to balk at the price because the cheap version is plenty sufficient. Normal keyboards at the store are $20... this is not a keyboard for people that would ever say "$130? It's just a KEYBOARD!"
Therefore, I stand by my statement about requiring a keyboard enthusiast, as it would be someone from the niche of people that would consider buying the keyboard in the first place, instead of walking away from sticker shock.
