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.

Now I really need to find a Griffin iMate. Never cottoned to the shiny new Apple keyboards, so I'd prefer using my old Apple Extended II keyboard when I get a Mac mini.
