    According to a source that was at MYT, apple will release a new keyboard. In a darkened room, a few higher ups in apple japan were seen looking at it. This new revolutionary keyboard uses only one key. And depending on how you press it, you can type anything you want. The new "iKeyboard" will be in a clear and white case made of new types of composite material. Due to the rising costs of the new key that will be used on the keyboard, the price will be 199 dollars.

    Proof was on "http://www.geocities.com/lil4mac8/ikey.jpg" for a while, but apple has forced the webmaster to take it down due to legal reasons.

    this would be freaking awesome

    If any company could pull this off it would be APPLE. Steve can do anything. I don't understand exactly how you get all words from one key, do you know anything about how it works? I can't wait, i just ordered a new imac today to replace my old imac, how great is that! Well, back to checking my order status at apple.com.

    I want an iKeyboard!

    later,

    How did you get info about the computer that reads your mind? I wasnt going to say anything because i feared for my life...But i found out about the so-called "G5" everyone is in a fuss about. You know why you guys cant seem to figure out what processor it will use? Its because it DOESNT use one. It uses an amalgamation of airport and bluetooth to directly read your mind. (Provided you get a third party attachment for your broca's area on your brain). Thats why I am waiting before I buy a new mac.

    Keep in mind though, that the iKeyboard will be released for G4s, because when the G5s come out you won't need a keyboard...because of the mind reading and all.

    I remember the prototype for that POS.

    It was abandoned cuz it earned the moniker "iWank" from the ..... uh ...... suggestive nature of rapid keyboarding on the laptop version.:rolleyes:

    an ode to apple

    Windows is so dirty, it would be unacceptable to a dungbeetle that had lost interest in its career and really let itself go.

    one key? you have got to be kidding! Explain to me how that would be a time saver or even any easier than a regular keyboard. Even if it did work it souds like a troublesome gimmik. Besides, I don't think even Jobs is that squirrelly. Very lame concept!

    Has no one else felt the similarity between Crusades, and GoCyrus? I mean the sarcasm is unreal, very similar to Cyrus. Oh, well it was nice while he was gone.

    It's hard to describe...But its not at all "squirrelly". If anything, its revolutionary! I mean, did YOU guys think of the scroll wheel on the ipod? And if you say yes, im sure you thought of star wars as well. Well why dont you just sit back, and enjoy the new iKeyboard for what it is. You people are like the guys who would go see crouching tiger hidden dragon, and be upset because they could fly and its not realistic. But then you will go to spiderman and not complain of realism about a guy who got bitten by a radioactive spider, can shoot friggin webs, and swing around manhattan. I swear...

    Close your eyes and picture Crusades writing the first post on this thread. Can you see his tongue planted firmly in his cheek?
    When I close my eyes I can actually hear him rolling on the floor and laughing. Go ahead, try it.

    they're going to replace the mouse with two buttons, so Apple decides to keep the 1 button phylosophy with the keyboard

    makes sense to me:rolleyes:

    I think Crusades is just trying to get flamed.

    Or he wants a device he can use with the same motion that he uses to "relieve stress".
