Bringing Wires Back

I’m wired, again. I upgraded my keyboard and mouse and chose the wired versions.  For most people, going wired is a step back in time. I think its a smart choice. I’m choosing function over design.

There are three factors I considered.  First,  Apple does not offer the numeric keypad on the wireless version.  Second,  I’m tired of changing batteries. Third, this may be mental, but I feel a lag in the mouse movement and keyboard response.

I enjoyed the clean style of being wireless; but, being wireless did not provide functional benefit.  I missed my wires, they just work, and I’m happy to be wired again.

    Its not just you, my office and home look exactly the same now.

    The wireless keyboard would be cool for a home media solution but looks plain dumb on a big desk.

    Also I’m now realizing how much lag the bluetooth mighty mouse has and how nice the usb one is.
