When you're IMing all your BFFs, do you have difficulty typing Internets-friendly phrases like LOL, L8R, TTYL on your Qwerty keyboard? In fact, do you have a problem pecking away at the keys on your Qwerty keyboard in general? A new keyboard unveiled at the New York Toy Fair hopes to be of assistance to you and all the other 8-year-olds like you.

The Fast Finger Keyboard works as both a Qwerty keyboard and in alphabetical order. Users can switch between modes with the push of a button.

Of more interest are the shortcut buttons at the top of the keyboard that employ built-in shortcuts for typical e-mail and IM phrases. Here is the complete list of shortcuts available:
ASAP
BRB
BTW
CYA
FYI
HOAS
HRU
IMO
L8R
LOL
THX
TTYL

Is this of any interest to anyone? Does this usher in a new era of laziness or convenience?

Whatever, CYA L8R...


This is the dumbest thing I have seen in awhile.

For me it would take longer to reach for the button than manually type any of those.  But, I type extremely fast.  So, hey.

In South Africa we use the abbreviation HKGK when we want to warn people of approaching trouble. HKGK stands for hier kom groot kak meaning big sh*t is on the way.  TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
