A wee while ago I posted about my tech wishlist and the high-value items that I wish I had in my possession. However, there was something, that until I’d started temping again, that I realised I’d missed from the list and that was a handy little keyboard I could take with me to be able to blog from my iPad.
I’ve been working on a reception desk with no computer access which means either taking my laptop in and pairing with my iPad or using my phone and iPad at the desk. I did take my laptop in one day but it was such a faff and honestly, I wish I hadn’t bothered as it took up more space than I really had.
I did a couple more shifts there after the Bluetooth keyboard arrived and honestly, it changed my blog productivity levels. I went from not really getting much done because I was handwriting it all, to bashing out (at last count) four blog posts in one day.
The keyboard from Penclic* is amazing and so light which I found quite surprising as I was expecting it to be heavier. Or at least it looks like it should be heavier. The keyboard retails for £79.99 which is what I would expect a piece of tech like this to cost. The best it is it not only works with my iPad or iPhone but can also connect to Windows and via a corded connection depending on how you want to use it. I’ve been having a nosy on the website and have been eyeing up the carry case for the keyboard which also looks like I might be able to fit my iPad in there too.
If a Bluetooth keyboard isn’t’ the thing you need then maybe a mouse or laptop stand is what you need. Penclic are all about keeping us ergonomically adjusted – I admit I’m terrible for not doing this at home – and understand the need for products that are not only functional but are helping to reduce the risk of repetitive strain injury.
