Like guys there really is no reason to have a secondary display once you get connected via SSH on an iPhone via the app Serverauditor or an Android phone using whatever suitable SSH app...the same goes with a keyboard. If you desire a physical keyboard or one that isn't meant for "texting" I recommend these Bluetooth keyboards for the iPhone when using SSH...they are much smaller!
(Search "laser keyboard" on Amazon...there's one for $50 that has at least 4.5 stars for reviews)
This one is my favorite though but it has a steep learning curve. It was designed for iOS VoiceOver http://www.mobience.com/sub_rivo_en.html
its well supported and I need to do a firmware update on it when I get home.
Red or green laser keyboard...
On the downloads tab...

I have a ton of apps on my phone and I rarely need to use a laptop unless I want a bigger screen, even for school work. You get used to using a phone only. But with #OpenAPS and the Raspberry Pi 2 it is the way to go.

Actually the first link I posted...it's not legitimately all of the same reviews some are them for the laser keyboard, some are for mechanical physical keyboards. Kind of misleading. So, I don't recommend it

If you want a laser keyboard, get either the VK200 (red or green, well supported and manufactured by an Israeli company, CTX Technologies) or the Cellulon Epic (a subsidiary of CTX Technologies and uses the same technology, don't know if it's well supported or not). Those are the two I would recommend. I would only recommend those two. Only, so far, the ratings on laser keyboards hangs around 4.0 in general on Amazon. My laser keyboard works best on a flat surface and the keyboard on "a white sheet of paper" and in a well lit room for accuracy. But the VK200 has a window to see what characters you type so it's advantageous to have that as it isn't a true mechanical keyboard. I would recommend the VK200 though. I don't have trouble with it at all with accuracy with the viewing window and stuff with typing.

The main other thing to note is that you're using an iPhone 6 plus. Huge difference in usability for stuff like ssh between that and an iPhone 4 or 5.
Even my 6 should be a lot better.

Yeah
I would agree
I got the 6 plus for the 1.5 x battery life versus the 6
I still think iPhone using SSH client is the way to go...no matter what. Whether you "need" a keyboard or not.

If you need a "physical" keyboard for iPhone I would get this. Although this keyboard doesn't have any reviews. The Rii keyboards generally have good reviews
But anyways I went wild...

Sorry
Will do...kind of visiting with family and rambling.
But I don't have problems with accuracy cause I use the viewing window when typing on the laser keyboard. I just have observed those discrepancies/possible issues.

gist :-)
I assume everyone uses ssh and that keyboards are not a problem in 2015

Will do... Just trying to escape family! LOL
I'm just saying for SSH on a mobile device...some people don't like "pecking" or "texting" commands

right, product reviews are great in gist/blogs/tumbler not so great on chat unless someone is explicitly asking
if it's in gist/blog it will help make your favorite products more popular and be more effective
then when someone does ask, boom, you've got a nice link

Sorry. Wasn't meant to be a review. Met with Dana and Scott last night and we thought this was the way to go. I just went wild today and I intended on "updating" them but went wild
