Yeah, I was shocked to see that as well. At $oldjob^4 we threw out
probably a dozen of them. :(

Inspired by this thread, I just ordered one of the Wombats. Made by the
same guy who does the Floppy Emu. I'm ok with gambling $49+S&H on
something that'll probably work just fine. I do want to "daily drive"
some of my old Apple keyboards like the AEK II and see what I really
think of them. Assuming it'll fit on my keyboard tray side by side with
the modern Magic Trackpad.
