    It’ll end up on e-bay as an ergonomic keyboard.

    Ergonomics taken just a wee bit too far…….. {bet its from putting it in the dishwasher, any takers?}

  3. Ruja

    I would bet for the oven. They probably put it into the oven for drying after a wash in the dishwasher.

    you have no idea how many times!, my keyboard came pretty close to looking just like that or even worse maybe.

  5. XxChungxX

    yeah, love it

    All it probably needs is the dust blown out.

    I can hear it now: “What!? Waddaya mean it’s not covered by the warranty?”

  8. Luigi

    Bet that was from “drying” it after pouring coffee on it

  9. rKiller

    LOL not really

    I thought I told you not to leave it outside, now look at what the sun did to the keyboard .

    Just another case of keyboard abuse. Call the CPS, another board left in a locked car.

    I didn’t know shrinky dinks made keyboards.

    Left on the front seat of a car in Phoenix….in July !

    I am still using the first keyboard I bought in 1995 and it will never be abused like this one in the picture.

    dishwashers work without drying with heat on. don’t use oven though. Just keep a couple spares on hand while the washed one is drying. I have one that is 15 years old.

    Nah this keyboard rather looks to me as the peak of frustration with Micros**t incompatibility driving the poor person up the wall as the “Back-up C.D.” became unreadable and the private alone standing computer “needs Administrator authority” and the files are as good as useless and now TAX PROBLEMS!!

    As if someone decided to try his luck install the operating system “Windows 8” and did not take it seriously advice from the corporation, “that the system does not support the old equipment” and the system requires more system resources. It’s funny, but in reality so it seems, but also on the type of keyboard lets you know that the start of melting inside XD, Sorry.

    Asian Angel, Thank You =)!
