The new Das gaming mechanical keyboard is pretty good. Not as many "gamer" features as some others, and the LEDs aren't RGB. Still, it looks much nicer than most gaming boards and the switches are solid. 
Mechanical keyboards predate modern PC gaming, but they’ve been firmly embraced by gamers in recent years. Gaming peripheral makers like Razer and Corsair have gotten into the mechanical keyboard market and been quite [...]

Das Keyboard Division Zero review unit obtained. Poker 3 for scale.

It's a good thing Artem doesn't run a website that reports on things like this... oh, wait.

Finally got my hands on the Carbon SA keyset. So pretty. It's not easy to find, and I haven't been able to get the novelty set yet. Fingers crossed there's another group buy for it soon.

It's one of the great tragedies of our time that there isn't more Metalocalypse.

NSFW for various reasons

Metalocalypse. A modern classic.

I just ordered some of these lovely artisan caps on Massdrop. They're gonna look great on the White Fox.

Arteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeem... why?
 
Hangouts 7.0 is here! This is not a troll.

Stuff we've found so far:
- Quick reply in notification shade.
- "Save to Home screen" shortcut for quickly starting a conversation with a specific contact or group.
- Hangouts will now show a blurb about using Messenger for SMS on first run.

Edit: No Direct Share in this release.

Reading threads like this makes me immensely happy I get to work from home. I'm not trying to humble-brag here. I'm genuinely grateful to everyone who reads things I write, including a certain novel that you can buy on Amazon... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00K8L4K7K

The Granite PBT keycap set is on Massdrop again. So tempted. Looks really good and I'm interested in DSA profile. Already a few thousand orders in the first day.

+Mitchell Eve That's a White Fox in the promo image, I believe. Not mine. They don't exist in real life yet. I bought one in the group buy that happened a few weeks ago, but they don't ship until March. There are other boards about that size -- lots of ten keyless boards, 60%, and so on.

Building is pretty large and not many elevators. Rooms are nice. Dining options on site address good compared to other resorts, but more quick service would be handy.
