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.
