I notice that Yahoo has nothing on the back of their t-shirts like google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" T-shirts. I think the Yahoo ones should say Yahoo on the front and either of the following on the bak

Google-Only Eviler
Yahoo,Come over To the dark side.

The flexible Keyboards are a nice toy and can be buyed in the good gadget near you ;-)

Yahoo! can't make logos, but they sure know to make T-Shirts!
I really like it!

In fact, i think the Yahoo! T-Shirts are better than Google's.. :/

BTW,
I wish Google will have one like these:

Hey, how come Yahoo! isn't using .jpg or .gif files like normal people does?

:S

I've used those flexible keyboards in the past (Fordham Law has a bunch in their computer pods).

They certainly look like an awesome tool, but they are actually unbelievably unreliable and require that you have super strong fingers because you really have to press really hard to get the damn things to type... pain in the ass... I would advise against them

No, I Google.

It might be a great t-shirt too

My wife works in a clinic that deals with clients who generally have very contagious diseases (HIV/Hep/STDs. etc). They have these keyboards in all the treatment rooms so that they can disinfect them after each client. Had them for a few years now. (Not purple, mind you.)

I have seen flexible keyboards at least 3 or 4 years ago. I'm serious. I even bought one for my sis. She rolls it in her backpack and bring it to school.

Those are widely available – I used to have one until I was cutting something with a stanley knife and accidentally cut-off 7 and ahalf keys... :(

One of my fellow mates from a local Linux Users Group used this keyboard:

They are a lot cheaper when they don't have Yahoo logo's on them.

$9.99

I recently bought one of these in one of the local Hofer (=Aldi-Süd, 9 €) stores here in Austria. It's a funny gadget but not really soooo great for work. And you should never try to roll it up when it's still connected ;)

Those things DO exist ... I was in an electronics shop here in Hong Kong a couple weeks ago, and they had flexible keyboards of varying sizes and colours from prices of HK$60 to HK$200 ... that's about US$7.6 to US$25.5 ... admittedly, the $60 was cheap-looking, but there were many decent ones at HK$100(~US$13)

Is it not good to work??

These are 10 year old technology, I got one on my trip to Hong Kong 10 years ago.

Oh, they definitely exist. My friend keeps one with the portable computer he designed to fit inside a toolbox. It's not exactly the easiest thing to type with... you sort of have to use two fingers in order to apply proper downward pressure or the keys can fidget around unreliable. Still, it's pretty sweet, and super quiet.

I really do not understand the fuss about this post. Had you never seen a flexible keyboard before? I live in the UK and I've seen these things in shops for years and years! They're about £10 in a department store and they're dirt common.

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

No fuss.
It's just not so usual to see keyboards from this type.

And yeah, i think Tom meant iGoogle :P

What would be very cool, I think, is to have one of these keyboards battery powered and bluetooth enabled so it can be used with mobile devices (like an iPhone... whenever they unhandicap bluetooth in the firmware).

It's really common. In China, they are sold in small stores. I don't think these kind of keyboard is good for every day use. They are too soft
