  • Apple keyboard

    I've just been given (long story) a new Apple keyboard (the nice aluminium wired version). Does anyone know what the button between F16 and 7 on the number pad does? It looks like a little rectangular box with an X overlaid. Been trying to work it out and Google is being about as useful as polio.

          Never! The Steve Jobs idol I keep on the coffee table would come to life in the dead of night and garrote me with my iPhone headphone cable.

            Is it a nice keyboard?

              It is actually fantastic. I've got the wired version; I know they've got a bluetooth version too which is AFAIK a clone of the Macbook keyboard.

              The travel is excellent, the scrabble-style keys feel excellent for someone with pianist fingers like me. Plus it also looks excellent - there's something oddly appealing about having a slab of cold aluminium on your desk. On the other hand it's not cheap at 29 and the symbols on it are cryptic. But given that it's so much more comfortable than the old Labtec thing I was using it seems a fair price - all the better for me because I got it free .

                It's almost as fantastic as the spiked cockring Whaleboy bought from the Apple store. FANTASTIC. LOVE IT.

                  Asher, you're getting your DLs confused. Wiglaf is your gay lover, not Whaleboy.
