if doesn't take much to rock your patterns
My preferred place to work is my office where I use a Mac Mini as my primary computer with two 27-inch LG 4K monitors which allows me to open a ton of windows all at the same time. I am a clutter junkie with a want to keep most of what I use open and accessible all at the same time.
My primary keyboard and mouse pair were a Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard which lasted for nearly 10 years. Over the years, I had bought cheaper keyboards to connect to the TVs and other devices around the house, but have never replaced my primary keyboard.
When my primary Microsoft keyboard failed a year back, I switched to a Logitech K830 which was lying around and it worked for me. I moved quickly from Microsoft’s ergonomic layout and adapted to this keyboard. But, the joy wasn’t to last, as several keys started failing in this Logitech keyboard. I was so used to the layout and comfort of the keys that I even looked around to buy a used one as this model had been discontinued years back with no luck.
Finally, I bit the bullet and ordered the Logitech MX keys for Mac along with the Master 2S mouse, which I received and installed a couple of days ago. However, as my fingers and my palm do the talking and the scrolling, I am still struggling with too many typos and mouse control issues as I am learning (relearning) to type and mouse with the new devices.
It made me wonder how we have several delicately balanced things going on in our lives and it doesn’t take much to upset the rhythm that has been built and taken for granted in several small aspects of our lives.
I am sure as the days progresses I will get used to the key placement and spacing of the new keyboard, its texture of the keys, and the depth of the keypress until it becomes second nature and part of me again. Ditto with the mouse and its movements, scrolling, and key presses. And in due time, I would struggle if I have to replace this again with something else… one day.
