    You know, this new keyboard will take some gettin’ used to… but I think I just might like the new layout.

    I wish they’d put a nice big gap between the A and caps lock keys.

    The Leopard GUI link is dead. Why does it point to macscoop but cites thinksecret?

    If that rumored keyboard redesign is in any way true, then it’s good. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve accidentally hit the Eject button while trying to reach out for keypad 9… And direct playback controls on the F-keys (for iTunes, I suppose?) would indeed be nice.

    And I never understood the addition of the Apple logo on the command key. In fact, that’s how you can tell how long someone has been a Mac user: a relative newcomer will call it the Apple key, while people who’ve used it since the 80s or 90s call it the Command key.
