Default Old-School Keyboard Makes Comeback Of Sorts

"The IBM Model M keyboards are ugly, built like tanks, and, most importantly, have a spring under each key which clicks when you press it."
Not sure what's ugly about them most other keyboards are ugly, when you shut your eyes.

>> WTF kind of sentence is that?

>> What you get when typing away on a typewriter and thinking about the ugly people you had sex with.

I still remember when I first saw the DasKeyboard, I thought it was cool until I saw the price... Who wants to pay $129 for a keyboard with no letters on it? Hell, who wants to pay $129 for a plain keyboard WITH letters on it? I'd prefer to get me a $5 keyboard and wear the lettering off myself.
