(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

So I've got a microsoft natural pro keyboard. Actually, I've got two of em.. one for work and one for home, and I've been using them for years. They rock. Anyway, even though I've been using them for years, it's only within the past week or so that I've even bothered to use all the extra buttons on it... one to open up my browser, on for mail... some to mute/change the volume... two buttons for switching to the next/previous tracks in itunes... forward and back in the browser... etc. And if I don't like what they do, I can reprogram them to do something else. Cool. Makes it alot easier to skip songs in iTunes.

I didn't really have a point to this post, except to say "Cool!". And to also say "dangit- I think they discontinued my keybaord." But it looks like this one might be a sutable replacement. Then again they also have some wireless keyboards that use bluetooth which looks cool too... but they don't have the "natural split" keyboard. Their software may mostly suck (notice I said mostly), but their keyboards rule.

oh... wait... I want this one ... it's wireless, but it doesn't use bluetooth. Gotta have bluetooth for the geek factor.
