Worry not!

Stack Overflow has you covered with a brand new device. This nifty new device lets you copy and paste with the tap of ... The Key™! You can definitely 100 percent pre-order one from this link.

Gone are the days of holding down one key, just to have to press another key on your keyboard. What is this, 2020? No! It's 2021 of course. These devices appear to be "precisely etched using industrial grade lasers" using "quantum fusion drives" according to the release document.


Compatibility

It is compatible with anything of course! I was able to secure one on early access and I currently have it connected directly to my PlayStation 5. I also tried it on my Samsung s13 and it worked right out of the box.

As stated on the product announcement page: "The Key™ is compatible with virtually any computing device. From a Raspberry Pi to a high end gaming rig, cutting edge copy-paste is within your reach."


Can I run out of copy/paste?

Without this device you most certainly can! I ran out of copy/paste on Stack Overflow ages ago. You may have seen this all-too-familiar image when trying to copy some code:

This now iconic image from the site has led their engineers to develop this super awesome new device.
