So I guess Chris Condon’s site is now down. Luckily, I still have the stuff that was posted there. So here you go:
- DATASHEET: “Stupidamouse & Stupidakeyboard”
ORIGINAL POST FROM JULY 11, 2011:
Holy crap. I thought this was a joke but I guess not.
Apparently, Business Insider is reporting that Apple has filed for a patent on a “keyless keyboard”.
The moment I read this I thought to myself… haven’t I heard of this before? And then it dawned on me.
A guy named Chris Condon created a series of ‘datasheets’ back in 1998 that were parodies of ads and such that people released back in the day. One of them featured a series of devices without buttons called the “Stupidamouse” and a companion device called the “Stupidakeyboard”.
As luck would have it, I’m a packrat for these sort of creations. Since Chris’ site has long since disappeared, here’s the full PDF.
Oops! I just discovered Chris Condon’s site is STILL UP after all these years! YAY!
