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.

Something needs physical access to the keyboard.....

It's almost as scary as those PS2 Key Loggers that used to goto between keyboard and computer, those things were an epidemic......oh wait, not they weren't.

I mean seriously, any excuse to slam Apple these days with something everyone else does as well.
