One More Reason To Not Use A Mac
With a bit of work, the firmware of some Apple keyboards (A keyboard with open programmable firmware? That's a big mistake.) can be hacked so that the bad guys can have complete control over the system, recording your keystrokes, reinfect the computer if the hard drive is wiped, etc... . In other words, really bad news.
It makes me wonder if other keyboards that features any sort of programmable features could potentially have an issue like this. Scary stuff, indeed.
(Yes, that headline was intentionally written to incite the fan boys. Just relax, it's a joke, as there are plenty of good reasons for each platform, I know that.)
