    I'm curious as to why the images of the Apple Keyboard and the Apple Wireless Keyboard on the Apple Store site have been replaced with images of boxes? I haven't heard of any changes being made to the keyboards. Has anyone else?

    That's Apple's default image placeholder for their product pages. The keyboard images were probably just misplaced.

    I really hope they don't get redesigned - once I got use to the spacing; I fell in love with it. Definately, the best keyboard I've ever used.

    Maybe they're refreshing the color - maybe black keys to be better match the iMacs??? :)

    A number pad on the wireless one would be nice.

    The pics are back. No changes. Hey! I never noticed USB ports on the wired keyboard before! Very cool!

    Yeah, I believe there is one on each side. They've been there since the old old pro keyboards, but none for wireless :(

    Well, that's reasonable, since the wireless doesn't have a source to power a USB port. I do think it's a cool idea for the wired, though! What'll they think of next?

    In answer to your question, here's a picture I took in an elevator last week.

    That's crazy talk!

    I seriously want to know what was up with that decision. That was packaged along with ditching the matte option for iMacs. It's as if someone at Apple said, "I need two extremely dumb ideas to go along with this new iMac launch. Ideas, people!"
