Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750

The Logitech wireless solar keyboard K750 (PC version) is very thin with two amorphous silicon solar panels.


It seems very little light is needed to maintain the internal [rechargeable] manganese lithium cell. The button cell (ML2032) is replaceable and you can get the cell from Logitech or on ebay. On ebay just put in ML2032 and make sure its the rechargeable one.

This one piece keyboard has no other ways to charge the internal battery.


The short travel keys can be annoying coming from a full desktop keyboard.

There are no separate multimedia keys like volume up/down. They are integrated into the function keys F1-F12. The power off/sleep button is annoyingly placed next to the volume up key and just above the backspace key. The windows application key seems missing, but its actually activated by pressing [FN] + [Print Screen].

The Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock indicators are missing. To see if Num/Caps/Scroll Lock is activated, you have to download onscreen display software from logitech.


After all proper drivers have been installed, no complaints here.

Users manual and software:

None are packaged with the keyboard. You have to download everything. The users guide is a simple 20 page pdf file and half in English. If you hate bloat software, then you'll like Logitech's method. You only download the software you want.

USB Dongle:

This is not a bluetooth compatible keyboard. Logitech uses their own 2.4GHz wireless interface. The USB adapter is very small so that you can keep it in your laptop.

A wild owl apparently had a wild time in southern Germany.

An owl that had evidently drunk too much Schnapps from two discarded bottles was so inebriated that it got picked up by police. The bird will be released once it has sobered up.

Israeli Scientist Invents First Male Birth Control Pill

Male birth control?

Didn't they solve this problem 5000 years ago?

Yeah, I remember. The ancients used a stone tool invented a million years ago.

Physicists demonstrate time-warping principles

Experiments show how two people at two different heights precieve time differently. A person at a cliff for example would age slower than a person at sea level - by a few billionths of a second in a lifetime.

SkyFire web browser by SkyFire.com

I just installed SkyFire for my cell phone 15 minutes ago - unbelievable!

Just when they said that Windows Mobile is dead.

SkyFire will play Flash media on Windows Mobile, Android, pretty much anything. I was able to view Flash banners, YouTube (which is flash), even Flash games.

Adobe themselves won't give you flash for your cell phone.

If your phone has arrow keys, up-down-left-right, clicking on any arrow key will produce a mouse pointer - just like Opera mobile browser.

SkyFire not only lets you watch embeded youtube videos, it lets you watch streaming media. For example, the browser's default homepage has a link to live TV so you can watch for example CNN, Fox, NBC and CSPAN or live radio.

SkyFire loads faster than Opera mobile. But I think Opera is a fuller over-all browser. Whereas SkyFire concentrates on media such as flash and streaming media.

What do they get for giving you a free browser full of goodies?

After you've installed and launched the browser, there's an optional login link. Note: I said optional and that its a link. So I guess they make money by collecting your personal information - optionally for now anyway. And as of now, there's no advertising.

All this from a 15 minute observation -- and I've never heard of this before.

'Dear Uncle Adolf': documentary details fan letters sent to Hitler

...tens of thousands of surviving fan letters Hitler received while in power which were seized by the Soviets when they conquered Berlin in 1945.

For years these love notes, advice letters, gifts and health-tips lay undiscovered in Russian archives. Discovered in 2007, they formed the basis of a German book called 'Letters to Hitler'. Last night the Svengali-like grip that the Austrian-born Hitler exerted over Germany was unveiled as actors read out the letters that would fill a truck.

They were letters that often accompanied gifts, in the case of Margarethe Wagner, a pair of socks sent in 1938 after Hitler occupied the Czech Sudetenland border region.

"I knitted these for you as you freed us," she wrote.

Frau Troeltzsch of Berlin sent Hitler three silk handkerchiefs with pictures of Hitler sewn into them...

Benny Hill Show Theme song played over some Holocaust Movie


A very good explanation of Unicode -- UTF-8 vs ISO 8859-x

This solves a lot of problems I've had with web pages that are not of character set ISO 8859-1 western.

Some GUI web page generators now produce HTML files that are ment for UTF-8. These don't display well on a web server that is set to default character set ISO 8859.

The whole page may come up on a web browser such as firefox (not Internet Explorer) with just these three characters:

UTF-8 is newer and it may be a good idea to default to that.

The reason so many people showed up at Louis B. Mayer's funeral
was because they wanted to make sure he was dead.
