The keyboard is full-sized, but it has some quirks. Much has been made of the Cr-48’s lack of a Caps Lock key, but it’s totally fine by us since the caps lock key is now a Search key. Press it and a new browser tab opens with the cursor in the URL/search bar, or the “omnibox” as Chrome terms it.

On February 7, the fourth season of Community kicked off on NBC. It was something of a shock that the show had survived for so long. It ranked 193rd among broadcast shows. In May 2012, series creator and showrunner Dan Harmon had been unceremoniously canned. And on the night it aired, the season premiere pulled in just 4 million viewers.
