Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate Silent - Blank Keys, Soft Sound – I want blank keys except for the top numbers, because I find not having numbers a real pain when gaming. I think I’m going to need to buy two of these and swap out the numbers (my hunt for white letraset transfers has failed so far). Henge Docks – seriously cool, and useful for anyone who uses a Macbook on the move and at a desk. Neat idea, and you have to admire their bravery given they know that Steve is going to change the port layout...

The illustrated guide to a Ph.D.

The illustrated guide to a Ph.D. – I expect it’s quite co incidental that a Ph.D. looks like a pimple.

2 x Inception links (with a side of fries)

Inception graphic – not sure how much the graphic really adds, but it is quite a neat graphic. Lost's creator explains Inception's confusing ending [Major Spoiler!] – I wouldn’t call the ending confusing myself, ‘inconclusive’ or ‘thought provoking’ might be terms which are more relevant. Nonetheless this tweet probably explains why I’ve never watched Lost.

Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Review

Overkill as art: Ars reviews the Cyborg R.A.T. 7 – that’s a pretty serious mouse. I’m probably the wrong person to talk to about mice, as I’m finding it rather hard to find anything to replace my Logitech MX518. Hear that Logitech? The MX518 kicks fucking ass – it doesn’t have 3948 buttons or removable weights or it’s own scriptable API or anything like that. It’s a mouse which is comfortable to use, end of story.
