My New Keyboard
Having used Jason's wireless bluetooth Apple keyboard for a few days, I found it impossible to resist getting one for myself. Unusually, for Apple gear, the price is now very reasonable, and so it was a luxury that is affordable.
The thing about Apple products is that they are always highly functional, whilst at the same time managing to be beautiful. In addition, I remembered unpacking my iPOD and and my Powerbook - both wonderful experiences in their own right. And so it is that I want to share with you, the opening of my new Apple keyboard, bought from some unsuspecting seller on eBay, for 3 farthings.
The conscientious students among you may wish to click on the following pictures, in order to study them in more depth.
Figure 1 - Scalpel Insertion
A surgical scalpel is inserted into the the plastic adhesive closures, rendering them submissive and open.
Figure 2 - Open Box
The, now open, box reveals the beautifully packed keyboard, and its attendant documentation. Already, this is a better level of packing and presentation than I have ever seen before on a keyboard.
Figure 3 - Initial Separation
The elements have now been initially unpacked and separated. The batteries (which were included) have been retrieved from the base of the packaging and placed at a jaunty and alluring angle on top of the keyboard.
Figure 4 - Plastic Peeling
Ah, the joy of peeling the lightly adhesive plastic sheet from the base of the keyboard. The protective sheet ensures the entirely dust-free start that each keyboard enjoys. It's all down hill from here.
Figure 5 - Battery Insertion
Finally. the dry cells are carefully placed into the power cavity in the base of the keyboard.
Figure 6 - Cavity Closure
The power cavity is covered by a simple white cavity panel, held in place with sprung plastic cavity fasteners.
Figure 7 - Completion
At last the initial set-up is complete. All I must now do is run the software installation and connect the keyboard with my computer.
Figure 8 - Context
Here you see the new keyboard in context. Even as I write these explanatory notes, already I am using the new unit, much to my delight.
I do hope that you have enjoyed our little pictorial walk-through. It has helped me, to share with all of you.
