    You can't compare an old IBM keyboard to something recent.... I mean EVERYTHING used to be rocksolid.

    Its not that we want bad products, but its just that we aren't willing to pay for the quality. After IBM sold its division to Lexmark, the quality of these keyboards diminished.
    BTW: I'm talking about the IBM clicky keyboards, the ones that make that loud noise when you press the key, because each key has its own little switch sitting under it.
    I have a couple of those, but they were manufactured in China. At least the ones I have. They are huge full sized keyboards with PS2 connectors (not mini-PS2 that we are so used to nowadays!), They still work, and I use them to setup every computer I build. They are a known "working part" so I can rely on them never going bad really. They have been through abuse, and the keys are still as tactile as the day I found them in out storage room. The keyboard is older than I am!

    But other than keyboards... I dunno.

    My dad stole my last real good keyboard. A nice cherry ,man, I loved that keyboard. Ever since I went with logitech because I wanted cordless, I regret it. Then again, It was a present I got from my brother (the cordless logi)

    Nah, I love the 60's and 70's, and maybe even the 50's (mostly for the cars that were rolling around at that time (I'm such a retro-freak). The 80's weren't a big hit as far as cars went..... How squared could they look, c'mon.....


    Although geeks like ourselves wouldn't have anything to do back then, 'cause pc's didn't exist back then.... Let alone car-pc's

    You all know the first "pc" ever made, don't you? that1000sq ft. or something thing.... I'd like to see someone had used that as a car-pc

    Well... American cars weren't that great in the 80s... at least the late 80s.

    The one I have uses a PS/2 connector. I think you're confusing the AT connector with a PS/2 connector, because PS/2 only came in one size.

    I am actually not much of a car fanatic. The only "old look" I like are fins. I would put fins on my civic if I knew how! +10HP!!!

    I do like the "Cruella DeVille" cars. The ones with the spare wheels infront of the doors and the long hood and wagon-ish back. I think those are cool. There is one for sale around here actually.

    I am a fan of technology and things that impress me are things like good gas mileage, or touch interfaces, or the radar braking system (even though it failed testing! ).
