Dave Caolo on the Best Keyboard Ever Made

Dave Caolo has been using the same Apple Extended Keyboard II for 20 years:

First is the sound. That lovely wooden-stick-on-a-hollow-log “thonk” that announces each keystroke is yet to be duplicated. It’s satisfying in a way that affirms your productivity. Much like the jackhammer operator feels content at the end of a noisy day’s work, I feel that I got much accomplished with all that thonking and clacking.

I’m on my second.

Also, with an iMate ADB-to-USB adaptor and the Camera Connection Kit, it works with the iPad.
