In the wake of the excitement in the world of Apple
, recently, I seemed to have glossed over the fact that the new wireless keyboard is essentially that found on a MacBook laptop. Only after seeing a comparison of the wired and wireless keyboards in this post
did I realize just how small, and frankly, cute the wireless model is. Leave it to Apple to make even their keyboards — perhaps the most uninteresting computer peripheral around — not only extremely well-designed, but cute
Despite the fact that the keys are quite squished together for a non-laptop keyboard, the fact that it lacks a numpad and some other keys, and above all that it costs a whopping $79, every time I see this keyboard — an intangible object, a computer input device! — I get a little surge of excitement.
Damn you, Apple. The white-on-aluminum gets me every time.
