    anybody know if the Apple wireless keyboard works with the XBOX 360?

    been searching the web (google+mroogle) and haven't found anything except for "if it needs a driver it probably doesn't work"

    any thoughts?

    and if you have a wireless keyboard working with the 360 would you mind to post it here? not much material on the interweb

    The Apple wireless keyboard uses Bluetooth wireless technology. The wireless technology used in the Xbox 360 isn't Bluetooth, so it isn't possible to connect the two.

    FYI, everything needs a driver. Sometimes the driver is already built into the OS.

    That is correct. Xbox360 doesn't support bluetooth.

    You might want to just pickup a wireless keyboard made for it.

    If it is just for messaging friends the chatpad attachment for the 360 controller looks huge and looks like it would interfere with hand placement but it is actually well designed, doesn't add much weight and doesn't get in the way...much easier than having to pull out a keyboard when you want to message or enter codes.

    i will keep using my wired :apple: keyboard and just keep unplugging from the MacBook into the 360. not that big of a deal
