Controlling Your Computer and Mobile Devices

Computers and tablets and smartphones are nifty, and can help us do so many cool things, but how do you get all that good stuff in them, and how do you deal with it once it’s in there? This month, we’ll take a look and see!

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Mouse vs. Trackball vs. Trackpad
  • wired (USB) vs. wireless, Bluetooth, etc.
  • keyboards (various types)
    • general: various configurations and types, sizes, touch
    • application-specific templates and keyboard
    • iOS keyboards: wide variety of styles and features
  • Wacom tablets
  • Leap Motion
  • Universal Access in the System Menu
  • Siri and voice recognition
