Apple Almost everything has a processor and/or memory chips these days, including keyboards. Apple's keyboards are no exception; they have 8Kb of flash memory, and 256 bytes of RAM. K. Chen has found a way to very easily install keyloggers and other possibly malicious code right inside these Apple keyboards (more here). Proof of concept code is here as well.

People are always telling me Apple computers are safer due to better security measures. Riiiight.

Do the Psystar clones exhibit this egregious security hole? Or is just Apple hardware that is so unsafe?
