Last updated 07-22-13

The Wireless Keyboard + Easy-Glide Mouse is...what else...a cordless computer keyboard & a cordless computer mouse sold as a set.

The keyboard is a standard 104-key keyboard with quiet-touch keys; while the mouse is an optical mouse (no pesky balls to deal with) -- DPI rating is not known.

The keyboard is also somewhat spill-resistant, in that accidental spills of such items as diet Pepsi, coffee, Fanta orange pop, water, etc. drain out of the keyboard rather than just sitting there and fouling the keys.

* The word, "wireless" is normally associated with cellular telephony and other cellular communications, so this product would more correctly be called, "cordless".

To use the Cordless Keyboard + Easy-Glide Mouse, plug the small dongle into any free USB port on your computer first. This is the cordless 2.40GHz radio receiver, and it needs to be connected in order for you to use the keyboard & the mouse.

Install the included AAA cells into each unit, and THEN you can write that 247Kb web page.

You may then use the keyboard & mouse as you normally would.

To feed your keyboard & mouse, turn them upside-down, unclip & remove the battery doors, place them into a birdcage, clean out that cage (usually by sliding the {vulgar slang term for caca}-covered newspaper out and wadding those bitches up for disposal), and throw it into the dustbin (garbage can)...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set them aside instead!!!

If necessary, remove the tired old AAA cells, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.
Do not use your foot to push them under the Lazy-Boy where the dog might find them, do not attempt to flush them down the loo, and for Christ sakes please do not throw them over the side of a dock where they might hit a flounder on the way down to the sea bottom.

Install two new AAA cells into each, orienting them so that their flat-ends (-) negatives face the springs for them in the compartments.

Place the battery doors back on, turn the keyboard & mouse right-side up, and start using them again.
Aren't you glad that you didn't toss those battery doors into a birdcage with multiple layers of {vulgar slang term for bird poo-poo}-covered newspaper now?

Current consumption of the mouse measures 13.70mA in idle mode, and ~34mA in active mode.
However, these values don't really explain why the mouse eats through batteries so quickly (the batteries require replacement every other day).

The Cordless Keyboard + Easy-Glide Mouse are designed to be a computer peripheral, so I won't try to stomp on it with spiked golf shoes, drown it in the commode, slam it against a steel rod, run over it with a 450lb electric wheelchair, smack it with the golf putter I purchased in late-2004 (to practise the game "Hole in One or Two" on The Price is Right), let my mother's big dog's ghost, her kitties, my kitty or my sister's kitty cat piddle (uranate) on it, hose it down with my mother's gun, run over it with a 450lb Quickie Pulse 6 motorised wheelchair, stomp on it, use a medium ball peen hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoñata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (now I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piñata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piñata Central {aka. "Party Central"}), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoñata (also located at Piñata Central) is only used to shoot piñatas to piñata parties away from picturesque Piñata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piñata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analyses, or perform other indecencies on it that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. Therefore, this section of the Cordless Keyboard + Easy-Glide Mouse's web page will seem a bit more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The system requirements are: A pee-cee running Windows 98/XP/Vista/Win 7, an Apple Macintosh running Mac OS X v10.0 or above, and an available USB port.

The mouse has your two standard left and right buttons plus a clickable center scroll wheel; it also has three other buttons who's functions remain a mystery to me: there is one small button below the scroll wheel, and two buttons on the mouse's left side.

UPDATE: 03-20-13
Can you tell me what's funny about this photo?

If you guessed, "Not a thing! Looks fine to me!", then FIIIIISSSHHH PAAASSSTTTEEEE!!!
Note that one of the keytops is missing.
No, it didn't just fall off by itself, I took it off myself!!!

I'm glad you asked.
It's because the key has the backslash (\) and pipe (|) on it, and it's positioned right where the ALT key on my old keyboard was -- so (using the HTML editor I'm typing in right now as an example) when I wanted to save a file, I'd type, "ALT F S" but on this keyboard I'd type, "\ F S"instead, leaving me with garbage characters on the screen and no 'save' operation having taken place.

I've also noted that the mouse appears to be a dry cell hog (battery pig); I've had this set online for just two full days -- and yesterday morning, the mouse was deader than a doorknob -- I cannabilised a green DPSS portable laser for its AAA cells and was up and running immediately thereafter (the mouse's batteries failed to operate the laser).

After a bit of use, it would appear that the mouse batteries require replacement every two days; given the measured current usage, this simply does not add up.
