First off all I think calling a grown ass man a couch-potato is just plain hateful. Why would you do that? I mean it’s a conscious decision to be one, so why judge him and start with the name calling. It’s downright offensive and you people should stop it.
Now having said that, as many of my friends and relatives would know, I am notoriously difficult to get out of the house on a weekend or on a holiday. Why? Because I’ve worked all week and I need the 2 days off for myself, to catch up on new movies and TV shows etc. Which is why I end up spending the entire weekend on the couch, getting up only to eat, crap, piss and change movies on my laptop which I connect to my TV using an HDMI cable.
|Look at that infinite space between the couch and the laptop. Lord help me!|
Now, if you’ve ever been in a situation where after every 2 hours you need to get your ass up, crawl to the laptop, change movies, crawl back and re-position yourself on the couch, it gets annoying and too much work to do in 2 days. So, I decided I needed to fix this and started looking at wireless keyboard and mouse on Amazon. There were some pretty nice ones out there, but they were all a little too big. I’d probably have to place the laptop on my belly and hold the mouse with my hand etc. etc. too much work, to many moving parts and way too much action for my liking. So I delved deeper into Amazon for a better alternative until I found this little piece of wonder.
NewestMini Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Handheld with Touchpad for Android 4.0 +Tablet / Mac OS / Windows OS. Click to view on Amazon.
Did a little more research on it and found that Lew from Unbox Therapy had reviewed it and highly recommended it.
So what did I do? Logged on to Amazon and bought it, yes sir I did. paid a full Rs. 2099 for it.
After anxiously waiting for 5 days my package finally arrived around 4:30 in the afternoon, but I was a little pissed off that it came on a Sunday. Dammit, I had only half a day to enjoy this bad boy. So much to do, so less time. Nevertheless I opened it with tears of joy rolling down my eyes.
All I had to do now was, turn on the Bluetooth on my laptop and pair it with this little device and voila, I was back in control of my life. It functions like a full fledged keyboard with all commands and the touchpad does the work of a mouse. The battery is pretty good, you only have to charge it once a week sometimes once in 2 weeks. We have come a long way, when it comes to technology almost everything's wireless now and I for one hate wires, they all black and messy and look like pubes. I like the clean look, I mean when it comes to the whole, media entertainment set up. (To each his/her own)
Anyway after this amazing discovery, I will never have to get up from the couch except to shit and piss. (Next mission is to train the girlfriend to give me food and water on the couch)
Tested it and it works like a charm, the touch pad is responsive, keypad takes some getting used to but it serves my purpose. It’s light and decently built too. I pretend to fall asleep with it on my belly and I hardly felt it. Needless to say, I highly recommend it. Cheers.
Don’t Judge me.
