Yahoo’s New Logo

Mac Keyboards

Requirements for a true Mac keyboard. Meh. Some may think I'm just not cool or discerning or whatever, but I've always been plenty happy with the keyboards Apple ships. I type as much as almost anyone I know, and even the stupid aluminum keyboard you get with the Mac Pro is fine. As are the […]
