'Hardware' includes the 'hands-on' parts

As a long-time Mac user, I thank Apple for providing me with a better working environment and a complete solution - not just an operating system that hopefully works with whatever hardware configuration the vendor has put together.

That said, am I the only Mac user who remembers when Apple keyboards were superb typing interfaces, while almost all PC keyboards were nasty, plasticy tosh?

What happened to that key differentiator? Apple has released some really stodgy keyboards in recent years, along with mice that appear to be the work of industrial or fashion designers.

Surely, the physical interface between our bodies and the machines we have to use every day should use the input of medical experts, not someone who figures it will sell better in clear plastic.
