As we already discussed, there is the Mele F10 I use for my living room
mythtv, it's a stripped down kb and gyro-mouse:
Which I can get you for $42

Also, I personally use (on the bedroom mythtv) a different unit with
mini-kb and touchpad:
Which I can you get for $85

I am quite happy with both.  To be honest, I like the Mele more as it's
more convenient to use a remote-like device than a keyboard while
lounging around.  But the Mele is missing some keys that us Linux-ers
want, like CONTROL and pg-up/down (handy for mythtv).  That said, it
still has enough keys to handle almost every task in myth.
