I bought this today to replace my failed K800 (stuck "y" key). I went for solar charge because I was a bit annoyed with constant charging of the batteries, it started feeling like a wired keyboard. So far so good, I need to adapt somewhat but it's fine, the click-feel reminds me of a Mac keyboard, it's very similar (although more expensive - who'd say Apple stuff could be considered a cheap alternative). :)

After working with it extensively for a few days, my verdict is: awesome. I would like some more space on the bottom part, for better hand placement, and the left ctrl key is placed in a way that seems to invite accidental presses. Other than that, it just works and looks great. However, as I simultaneously use the Mac laptop, the different key positions keep driving me nuts.

A year later, after an unfortunate incident with a flimsy chair and a cup of coffee, it no longer works and I had to replace it. Since it has non-removable internal batteries, it is quite vulnerable to short-circuiting in case you spill fluids on it.

I am rather tired of Apple's bullshit. They want us to buy their high-end products at a premium price point, but they don't put their money where their mouth is. They buy cheap, they go for maximum value. Basically they are a company that buys a $100 netbook and tries to sell you a $2500 premium laptop. They want you to spend like crazy while they take their time counting small coins for their own purchases. And I don't mean only their manufacturing in China with cheapest possible labor in pathetic conditions, instead of manufacturing in the USA. I also mean the practice of their resellers. Whenever they outsource, they go for the lowest cost, regardless of the quality of service. Which is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to buy a computer that is the best value for money. If that happens to be Apple, fine. But I have no intention of buying their expensive stuff if they continue the practice of buying the cheapest crap everywhere, thus discouraging premium goods and services and turning the world into a sweatshop.

Some very good observations from the comment section:
"funny CNN does not mention the actresses account that "Bacile" spoke in ARABIC on the movie set and claimed he was a coptic christian"

"Follow the money and find out who Sam Becile works for to make sure it is not Alqueda trying to provide fuel for the fire."

That might actually be a very good idea, because this entire thing looks orchestrated, like Al Qaeda rallying support in the chaotic post-revolutionary Arab countries, attempting to focus anger at the USA in order to effectively take over. We've seen that in Iran in the '80s, but honestly, I feel this is just an earthquake on the Huntington's fault line between western and Islamic civilizations. I see how the politicians in the west try to play things down but there is a huge potential for a world war, because Islam and western system cannot be reconciled. Either Islam will become a moderate religion and lose political aspirations, thus integrating itself into Fukuyama's big global department store, or it will resist such integration and try to take over the world. So far, the experiences with Islamic immigration into the European countries do not favor the first option, as Muslims do not integrate well, they keep to themselves and count on demographics working in their favor. Of course, then the opposition forms, such as the right wing extremists who fight the immigrants and at one point you have a civil war that starts with massive riots.

Well, they sure are a religion of peace... a movie comes out ridiculing them and what's their reaction, they kill people and set everything on fire. I would be inclined to see that as conclusive evidence of that religion's character.

This has the potential to be a very cool device; I'm just not sure it is possible to translate the metro experience to a desktop machine without kinect. It looks like one of those things that just won't work.

I tested several window managers after Ubuntu's descent into unity (read as: lunacy) and ended up with xfce. Not that I find it to be perfect, but it is less flawed than the alternatives, and therefore it ended up on my linux virtual machines. I no longer run linux as the main OS because of all the window manager fubars but since I can't do any real work without unix shell, I run it inside virtualbox.

In any case, its lightweight setup is ideal for a virtual machine, as it doesn't try to duplicate the SW I already have on the main OS (Win or Mac). Here I mean primarily the Open/Libre office. The irony is, the highest praise I can give to xfce is that it is almost as good as gnome2 in the times of Jaunty and Lucid. It's still not as good, but almost; I occasionally find some things not working as I would expect them to, but they all look like something a developer or two could polish in an afternoon.
