Optimus Maximus OLED keyboard
The service life of displays and their ribbon cables has been enhanced by making the screens embedded in the keytops motionless—it’s only the transparent caps that are pressed.
Every button on the keyboard (or, more precisely, a module with a moving cap, a microchip and a display) is easy to remove in order to clean or replace.

Configurator software allows for programming every button to reproduce a sequence of symbols and editing the image separately for each layout.

Here is something to really to think about. Adrian Kingsley-Hughes posts an interesting thought stating that Apple should sell Windows-based Macs to take things to a new level. He says this could boost their revenues and beat the other PC sellers like
Hewlett-Packard and Acer’s worldwide shipments.

Personally, I think that would be a disaster. Some people buy Macs just to get away from the norm like Windows and make sure they never even touch Microsoft stuff. If Apple start selling more Windows stuff, the hard core Apple lovers may just jump ship and left Apple in the dust. Gee, all this would be a scary thought right? I’d much prefer seeing Apple coming with more cool stuff instead of following the norm and try to beat Nokia’s launch of Symbian touch sensitive phones next year.

GUESS that’s what you’d call an air of the dog! But Stanley the wire-haired fox terrier looks more RAF than ruff as he goes for a spin in his replica Spitfire.

The four-month pup wears a flying hat, goggles and jacket to ride in the “plane” made from an old holdall and skateboard.

Owners Phil and Sharon Cook created his outfit for a Hallowe’en party at a dog boutique near their home in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. Sharon, in her 40s, said: “People think we’re barking, but Stanley loves it.”
