So as expected, the keyboard seem to be a polarizing feature. The triangle on the V key, and “oops!” on the backspace key is something that has never been done before in the history of computers, especially in its class.
Some like it on how cute it looks, how its an identity that shows how startups do things differently than big corporations, but on the other hand, people who dont like it got valid concerns as well. Especially on people who’s career hinges on how his/her image is perceived by other people or their business partners.
My idea is to offer a “Business Edition” keyboard (or call it Boring Edition, if you want), and introduce it just like any other local print layouts. That means, it will cost $20 extra. I think people wouldnt mind to pay a little bit extra if its that important for their career.
- Yes, I would pay $20
- I would settle with the “oops!” and save $20
- I actually like the “oops!”
