It will work with a Mac but if you have never used a flexible keyboard before they are horrible. I can not stress that enough.

For very mild keyboard use (and the hunt/peck method), it would work. However, if you're planning on doing any actual typing, it's not going to work very well.

Touch typing is a mushy disaster and it's just too slow to use.

With that said, you can spill your lunch all over it and just rinse it off - so that's a plus!

And yes, I've used a flexible keyboard.

it really can be just rinsed off? you remind me that it seems easy to dirty.
Most flexible keyboards are washable. The one you linked to indicates it's washable.

With that said - I've put regular keyboards in the dishwasher as well. Just make sure it's 100% dry before plugging in again.

for regular keyboards it is OK I think. i just think of the keyboard protective film of my notebook, which is so easy to dirty.

Water alone doesnt destroy electronics. What it does is create a short circuiting hazard if any electricity happens to be flowing through.
:) get new knowlegde. that means i can use damp close to clean it without damage, provided that i avoid water flowing through it?

They're horrible keyboards, it's like typing on mush. Plus no apple specific keys, needs a dongle. It's a bad PC keyboard and an abysmal Mac one. I think William S. Burroughs might have liked it though.

The Apple bluetooth keyboard is excellent.

The bug is from the movie "Naked Lunch" which was based on the novel of the same name. The author was hopped up on heroin while he wrote it, in the movie the typewriters were large bugs.

Point is I'd rather type on a bug than a flexible keyboard.
