 Now that you mention it, I was always wondering if there are any security concerns while transferring the keyboard signal to a Mac wirelessly. Imagine if someone manages to intercept and decode the keystrokes while you are sending sensitive data, like passwords. Anyone know how likely/easy is this to happen? It was never an issue for me before, because I never had a wireless keyboard, but this may change in the near future.
It is not an inverted T. For many people, using the arrow keys in inverted T layout is a habit established over years, if not decades. I tried recently a Macbook, which has the same layout for the arrow keys as the new Apple wireless keyboard. I hit very often the Shift key instead of the up arrow key because of that. Perhaps it gets some used to, but I did not like it.
Me too. Fortunately, Apple still offers as an option the wired full size keyboard when you order an iMac. I would never buy a keyboard like the new one. If the battery dies you must throw it away. At this price I say no. Sorry Apple.
Wow, that's nifty! Plus numeric pad. Let's see if Apple can beat this.
I was thinking about a backlit keyboard since the time Apple introduced them in the Aluminum Powerbooks, more than ten years ago. After some time I realized that this is perhaps not a good idea since, if the keyboard is wireless and used frequently in dark room, it will drain the batteries really fast. I guess we will soon see if Apple has any surprise in that department.
Did I say any different? And you know this how exactly? Even if what you say is true, how it is related to the discussion regarding viruses under OS X? We compare classic Mac OS and OS X, and the methods to spread viruses at their time.
And this was before the era of the web. We still had the Internet but it was so rudimentary. At that time, the classic Mac OS viruses were spread mainly through diskettes, a process orders of magnitude slower than today's Internet-based spread. Yet, there were viruses. And a popular application to deal with them. Indeed. The histories of classic Mac OS and (Mac) OS X juxtaposed, largely disprove this concept.
Other members already contributed to this topic, but here is my idea: how about 10-bit color? Correct me if I am wrong, but as far as I know OS X still does not support (gasp!) 10-bit color internally, while the hardware got there years ago (which means that there is already software support for it - from Windows). I don't know why it takes Apple so long to implement the obvious for photo/video professionals (and we know iMacs are very popular among photographers), but let...
What are you talking about? iMacs at that time were only 15".
OK, I thought he was talking about something else. In my opinion, a 2D Dock is a more consistent choice. And I like it better.
