Keyboard comes with built-in spy

There's only one of them available, thank goodness.

Spying on other people's PCs can be such a hassle. For one thing, you've got to find a way to surreptitiously install key-logging software or other surveillance hardware . But the clever blokes at U.K.-based Spy Warehouse have come up with a practical alternative: Why not give the subject a new keyboard already equipped for espioniage?

The Spy Warehouse

Its "Covert Keylogger Keyboard" is a Microsoft board outfitted with a 2MB storage device that SCI FI Tech says can track up to 2 million keystrokes. There are just two problems: Only one of them has been made--for 215 pounds, or about $435--and it's not available in the United States.

We somehow suspect that some enterprising individuals will come up with other versions, however. Either way, it joins the ever-growing list of dubious gifts that includes spying lamps , alarm clocks and, our personal favorite, car tires .
