Impeccably peckable

The standard QWERTY keyboard layout can be hard to grok for some people with cognitive disabilities, not to mention those who’ve never formally learned to type. We’ve seen keyboards with the keys arranged in alphabetic order before, but this is the first that lets you switch between alpha and QWERTY with just the press of a button. At $30, it’s also priced more attractively than other alpha-order keyboards. (Side note: for the last several versions of Windows, Microsoft has included a control panel that lets you reconfigure your key layout in almost any way possible…except alpha. Fingers crossed for Win 7.)
