    I was looking for information in the MacRumours Forums on bluetooth mini keyboards. Found that entering ' bluetooth mini keyboards' brings up thousands of posts on the Mac Mini, and even more posts about keyboards.

    the posts I want are lost in the chaff.

    It seems impossible to eliminate all the various Mac mini posts, there seems to be no way of searching for the exact phrase.

    Or am I wrong?

    Have tried 'mini keyboard' (With speech marks), "mini keyboard" etc.

    Could someone help?

    Thanks

    Thanks edesignuk!

    wish I'd thought of that earlier :) as I've done the same trick in the past with other sites. Just one of the many nuggets of information that daily fall through my brain, like soft danruff on the ground...

    Meanwhile, googling macromours reveals no info about bluetooth mini keyboards.

    Has anyone seen or heard of this wonderous beast?

    Thanks

    I'm assuming you mean "small bluetooth keyboards" and not bluetooth keyboards for the Mac mini ;)

    In which case, I have seen none. I did a quick Google search (not just of MacRumors) and found this, which is a stowaway bluetooth keyboard. Interesting.

    Thanks...

    Mmm I didnt think of looking at PDA keyboards...

    Looking in the PDA / mobile phone world, there seem to actually be several available, of various quality.

    http://l8shop.net/Products/Freedom_Bluetooth_Keyboard.aspx 60 quid

    http://www.porta-charge.co.uk/accessory53/ looks same as above, rebadged

    http://www.engadget.com/entry/8558888454588644/

    http://l8shop.net/Products/Nokia_Wireless_Keyboard_SU_8W.aspx made by nokia, rather natty white, 80 quid

    The one u suggested, the Stowaway, is 90 quid in the UK. This, along with the Nokia, looks the best quality. Now all I have to is justify to the girlfriend buying a keyboard even more expensive than the Apple BT keyboard...

    Wow.. nice one ED!! I've long decryed the search functions of vBulletin. Try seaching for "Help Menu" on a Mac help site forum that uses vBulletin.. oi!

    I guess since you imparted this nice nugget of wisdom, I'll cease work on my lazy-eye, booger-nose version of the Keira avatar.
