Clip-on keyboard pushes the right buttons
It’s no fun trying to touch-type on the hard glass “virtual keyboard” of Apple Inc.’s iPad. Oh, wait a second — yes, it is fun after all. Or at least a lot better than it used to be, if you slap on this clever and effective new product. Touchfire is a plastic sheet with raised sections that correspond to the positions of the keys on the iPad’s virtual keyboard. You just place the Touchfire over the iPad screen, and the knobby projections and soft, flexible plastic keep your fingers correctly placed for touch typing.
