From the “OOOoops!” department..

This apparently is a new wireless multimedia keyboard. See if you can spot the problem…
Seems to have its own case of ED (exponential dysfunction).
I guess you won't be using the '^' very much with this keyboard ;)
No one really ever uses that character anyway. :)
Now we can *never* use exponentiation in basic...
there is two & symbols on both the 6 and 7 key where should only be one on the 7 key
where is the car(r)ot?
No ALT GR on the right side. Its not ALT its ALT GR
Not the keyboard to have if you are a smalltalk developer...
Hey, I could write the answer here for the 6th time! Or I could just chuckle.
Actually.. I really think the problem is that the FLIPPIN' KEYBOARD IS BENT!
What's up with that?!
I won't repeat.
But, if you're like me, you won't miss the ^ at all: I type without looking at the keyboard. So, I will be happy using one if you gave it to me ;-)
Re: Alt vs Alt Gr -- depends on what locale the keyboard is being sold in. US keyboards have Alt.
Sheesh, just because the ^ isn't printed on the 6 key doesn't mean shift+6 won't produce it!
Reminds me of the rocket scientist who couldn't understand why changing the name of an Access query wouldn't produce a different result.
True enough. But simply the fact that the key labling is wrong suggests that neither rocket scientists nor brain surgeons had anything to do with the creation of this keyboard.
I have that keyboard and I'm seeing lots of things missing. Printed on the side of the key facing the user:
I'd say "Hat's off!" would the the appropriate expression.
I think the problem is with looking for the "F1, F2... " keys. The appear vertical and its difficult to see when typing.
I never really liked the MS ergonomic design anyways :p It makes me feel lots of keys are missing in the middle, and I had always liked better the dial for volume in the logitech Elite series
