Most of our portable devices these days (bar laptops) have been reduced to nothing more than a slab of glass, plastic, and sometimes metal. As a result, a physical keyboard is quite a rarity.

As a result, injuries related to long-term usage of keyboard and in particular mice have cropped up dramatically over the years. Besides spending less time using a computer (which may not be possible for some), the only other option would be to find accessories that are designed to reduce fatigue-related injuries. One such product is the Anker Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse.
Microsoft has added a new variant of the Surface Pro 3 to its online store without telling anyone about it.
