    Well I can't vote on the news thread (will someone tell me why?) so I'm using this one.

    The main thread doesn't have a poll. That's why you're using this one. :)

    Hmmm...

    I find it interesting that the responses fall neatly into a standard distribution curve, if you turn the image of the responses 90 degrees to the left. :cool:

    Yeah, Doctor Q simply meant that this thread should be used only for voting, and the main thread for comments. Unless it's a comment about the poll itself, it seems.

    I like it, but I hope it's fake. That is, I like the look of it, but I would HATE to see them break their old layout (volume button, etc). That would just be dumb.

    Now, if they had that style with the same layout as the existing keyboard, count me in!

    Where you post is not a big deal, but your posts will get the biggest audience in the main thread, while the results of this poll will also be interesting.

    Idon't like the keyboard, the thing that I love about desktop keyboards is how your fingers go down, this totally takes that away.

    I think the white keys on the metal is quite ugly actually. I don't like it at all. I think silver on silver, or white on white (or both) would be much better.
