Mark Bernstein writes about portable keyboards
Yesterday I posted a request for stories about using PDAs with keyboards in class. A few hours later I received a response from Mark Bernstein of Eastgate Systems. While he wasn't technically a student, he was taking notes in a university lecture hall in Singapore. Besides the "Ooh! Ahh!" response, even in a techie crowd, what I learned about schools was that "...the keyboard fits nicely on folding lecture-room writing surfaces. And it's durable -- twice, when trying to edge out to the aisle to ask a question, I plunked the whole thing onto the concrete floor, and both times it came through unmarked." (I hadn't thought about durability. That's why you want real stories from the field...) Read his full email in Stowaway sightings.
