one thing annoying on the Mac is that in Safari, it doesn't support holding Ctrl or Cmd and scroll mouse wheel to zoom in/out. It's trivial to support, but Apple's lose sale for its trackpad.

Spend $220 on amazon. That's, like, biggest spending in 12 years. A shoe, a mouse, a USB hub, a web cam. Necessity for rich living.

enamel paint your keyboard

just got a great idea. just buy some enamel paint, and you can paint your keyboard pretty.

you can see a example at Kinesis Advantage Keyboard Gallery

you can go basic by painting home key with diff color, or the esc key. Or, paint dvorak label, or on programable keypad.

or, you can go artistic. at that point, anything goes. comics, drawings, math formula, abstract, or whole thing pink Cadillac.
