Ode to a Typewriter, part 2
Back in January, I blogged about the lure of the antique typewriter. Last month, Nick Basbanes reported that New York's Writers Room had banned typewriters. Typewriters still fascinate us, and here's one that will thrill those that straddle the traditional/techie divide: a USB typewriter. An old-fashioned typewriter keyboard that can be plugged into a standard USB so you can view on screen and save the file. You get the comforting click-clack-click-clack and the assurance that you can modify and save your work as needed. You can buy one of these outright, or send your own in for customization. Neat!
