Incredible tiny typing – anne pro 2 review

Unless you’ve been living under a tech rock or in a Luddite fortress, chances are that you’ve seen or heard or mechanical keyboards. And if you’ve had any interest in getting a mechanical keyboard in the past year or so, you’ve seen the explosion of popularity in keyboards that are smaller than your average 104-key clacker.

This little clicker is what’s known as a 60-percent layout. As in, it has 60% of the keys found on a more traditional 104-key device. Even though it’s missing more than 40 keys, this little “keeb” as mechanical keyboards are affectionately called, has nearly all of the functionality you could want from a keyboard and then some.

One side, small form factor or SFF crowd, is mainly concerned with size management and getting the entire system as small as possible. The other side, which doesn’t have a name as far as we know, is more interested in seeing what kinds of layouts are possible given the smaller components like the motherboard and PSU.

Antec has released the new Striker ITX case that it clearly in the second camp.

Using the heat to keep cool – GoSun Chill Solar powered cooler

Now that summer is nearly upon us here in the northern hemisphere, it’s time to shift our thoughts to beaches, BBQs, picnics. It’s a tradition that as soon as the sun starts feeling like it’s a bit too close that we all congregate outside to enjoy the non-cold weather as much as possible before Old-Man Winter comes back.

But all this outdoor recreation poses a time-honored problem – how does one keep all of the snacks and drinks cold when we are among the great outdoors? Normally it means a stop at either a grocery or convenience store to purchase a multi-pound bag of ice, or telling someone else to bring the ice on their way. GoSun believes that there’s a better and drier way to keep picnic and BBQ items cool. Enter, the GoSun Chill.
