Microsoft unveiled the Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 keyboard and mouse. The Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 is ergonomist-approved and utilizes a Comfort Curve layout that encourages natural wrist posture with a slight six-degree curve.
This new desktop set combines the Microsoft Comfort Curve keyboard layout with a soft-touch palm rest to make the PC experience more comfortable.
The Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 is already aimed at Windows 7. A new time-saving feature called Taskbar Favorites gives Microsoft keyboard users an easy way to access their open programs.
Instead of the traditional My Favorites Keys with stored locations, Taskbar Favorites will map to the location of open applications on the improved Windows taskbar. The icons in the taskbar can be easily rearranged just by clicking and dragging; Taskbar Favorites will instantly adapt to the new icon locations.
The new Microsoft desktop will support Device Stage, a Windows 7 feature that gives customers quick and easy access to common tasks, including product information, registration, settings and more for popular device categories such as cell phones, cameras, printers, portable media players and input devices.
Additionally users of this new Microsoft mouse and keyboard can easily see a thumbnail preview of all open windows with the press of a button. A full-screen preview of the application will automatically display, enabling the user to better identify and select the desired application. This feature is called Windows Flip.
The is available for pre-order on Amazon.com at a price of $79.99.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
