Pinephone keyboard (no, not that one)
#1
Needed to do some debugging that would interrupt ssh.  I didn't feature
typing long arcane systemctl commands on the touchscreen so I looked around
for a keyboard. Two full-size keyboards crowds my cluttered desk.  I
remembered a weird little 8"x10" Logitech keyboard I bought at a yard sale
for about $5 so on a lark I dug it out.  It has a microUSB socket but
neither the Pinephone nor the pc see it.  Oh, well.  Before pitching it
back in the junkbox I took a long shot and looked up the part number
(Y-R0023).  Turns out to be a Bluetooth keyboard for an iPad and it pairs
up just fine with the Pinephone!  Not only that, but the Pinephone fits
perfectly in the slot where the iPad would go!  Of course, being from the
Apple world it has no escape key, but that's fixable.  Some of the
special-purpose keys it has instead of function keys even work.
