    Please try to type the word "nice" as fast as you can. No correcting yourself. I have a certain problem with every single one of my apple keyboards, and want to see I others have the same experience.

    So no one has never gotten this annoying thing before? I showed a person at the genius bar the first time I ever had this issue, and he and I were both able to recreate it (in 08) and he gave me a new keyboard. But then every keyboard since has done it. I swear, I'm not crazy. This is a problem haha.

    My MBP's keyboard did it perfectly. I'm not much of a fast typer though, so maybe I was too slow :)

    Haha, I swear it is. When I have someone here in person, and they do it, they are like oh WTF? You gotta do it ultra quick and swiftly, and then the C dosent register, and theres a very short, yet noticeable lag.

    Just tried it with the Apple bluetooth keyboard, about half of the letters are missing :( MBP's keyboard is great though.

    How does this thing work? And what does it actually show?

    No problems on the Macbook here. A little disappointed in the Apple Wired, but I guess that's USB for you... (This is on a Hackintosh, I should mention.)
