    hello all,

    was just wondering is there a way to use my macbook keyboard as a USB keyboard for another device? i've got a wii yousee and could really do with a USB keyboard for it, but if i can use my macbook as it it makes more sense than buying a new one!

    thanks for your help!

    Cannot be done. There are programs where you can send keyboard input from one computer and have it go to another over the network, but this would not work for the wii.

    damn that really is a shame that it doesn't exist.

    i think it must be possible to write? afterall, it's merely reversing the process of typing INTO a usb port, surely? although i'm guessing not many people would use it... x
