A multimedia keyboard in only 9 inches

Smaller doesn't mean dumber for this Brando multimedia mini-keyboard

Often when hardware manufacturers make a product smaller, they understandably end up sacrificing some features. But Hong Kong exporter Brando is selling a mini-keyboard that actually adds keys for various multimedia functions.

Electronista points out that the 9-inch-long keyboard packs in 20 special buttons while claiming to be quiet and ergonomic to boot. We're not sure why anyone would really need all this, but at $24 it could be a not-so-guilty pleasure.

If you're looking for a mini-keyboard with fewer functions but small enough to fit in your wallet, you might want to check out this Bluetooth model that Brando introduced last month. (Thanks to Jonathan in Ottawa for the tip.)

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
