      USB ports really aren't full function

      "And two USB 2.0 ports provide high-speed connectivity for your iPod, Mighty Mouse, digital camera, and other USB-based electronic devices." The above senten "And two USB 2.0 ports provide high-speed connectivity for your iPod, Mighty Mouse, digital camera, and other USB-based electronic devices." The above sentence is directly from Apple's advertising material for the new keyboard. Oh, how I wish it were true. I was facing the purchase of a USB hub because I was tired of turning my iMac, unplugging one item, plugging in another. I thought this keyboard would be a great solution. But even my Nano iPod kicks up a low power warning. The keyboard is great aside from the USB function. Great feel, easy access function keys, etc.

      Best keyboard I've used

      I can't give it 5 stars because it's not completely flat. That would be ideal. But realistically, you need to put the circuitry somewhere, so I understand why I can't give it 5 stars because it's not completely flat. That would be ideal. But realistically, you need to put the circuitry somewhere, so I understand why there's a small angle to this thing. It's worth the money. My wrists rest on my desk as I type. Keys feel good. Typing is easy on this thing. I'm positive that I'm reducing hand strain. And it's small & minimalist, leaving out any stupidity and preserving everything you need. Takes up a minimum space on my desk. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

      Great look and feel, but...

      I like this new keyboard a lot, but was VERY disappointed to learn that ipods and the iphone will not operate through the keyboard's usb ports.

Too bad.

      Short Lifespan

      I'm sorry I have to join the negative club, as it's a very nice keyboard while it lasts. But I've had to replace one for all the reasons listed by others. Keys I'm sorry I have to join the negative club, as it's a very nice keyboard while it lasts. But I've had to replace one for all the reasons listed by others. Keys lose their spring, and just lie flat. They lose their electronic connectivity, and no longer function. They lie lopsided, and cue multiple strikes whenever touched. These things should not occur as they do, at the age of the product that they do (and without warranty support that lasts long enough; unless you're okay getting just one year of protected use from your product).
