    "More Crumbs from the Table of the Master... Pt1"

    Take a look at your keyboard. It is highly likely it is a QWERTY model & that that is what you have grown used to over years & years.
    But did you know it could be different? That there are many other varieties of Keyboard that are better & many other types of technology light-years ahead of it?

    This is the fascinating thing about this segment. Set up as a trial of the QWERTY format, it introduces the listener to all sorts of devices that have 'better ergonomics & greatly reduced key travel'.

    Most interestingly there is the DVORAK keyboard, which is shown to have a totally different typing rhythm to QWERTY, but there are also greater evolutions, such as `Optimus Maximus' & `Stenographs' (which can achieve 180 words a minute - the speed of speech).

    And these snippets are just the tip of the iceberg of a fascinating section.

    P.S. See 'Fry's English Delight - Series 3' if you want to see the review of the full product.
