Anyone that worked with me at Enspire around 2007 might remember me saying “These new keyboards [the super flat aluminum ones released that year] have a purpose, I bet. I get the impression they’re training us to touch-type on super flat surfaces, and not rely on key edges so much. And to expect uniform, square - if rounded at the corner - keys. You know, the kind of keyboard you would see on a touch-screen tablet.”
