New out from BorgCo, quite similar to a regular pc keyboard, but with subtle differences.

The win ... wind ...wwwii ... the key with the odd wavy flag symbol is replaced with one which shows a croissant-and-fishbone.

Pressing this key in combination with other keys performs specialsed actions.

<HB> + <Home> launches the web browser and if necessary logs you into the home page.

<HB> + <+> buns an idea

<HB> + <-> bones an idea

<HB> + <a> starts an annotation

... etc. etc.

Available now in genuine simulated plastic-effect, comes fitted with a 5-pin DIN plug for easy attachment to your PC/XT. No half-serious half-baker would settle for anything less ! A bargain at USD$59.99 including packaging, shipping, handling, flaky crumbs and a disturbing odour of old kipper.

Comes complete with drivers for all popular non-GUI operating systems on an 8" hard-sectored floppy disk (versions on paper tape or RL02 hard disk available at extra cost).

Order now and get the special fishbone/croissant serial mouse included for only USD$29.99 !

(Mouse can be purchased separately for USD$19.99 plus USD$10.00 shipping).

       I dunno. Maybe if an ADB version comes out.

       It's the Winkey - the only key named after a body part?   

       However, the bakery already has accesskeys available. To annotate this I pressed alt+shift+a and now I am about to press alt+shift+o

       We can do you an OCD version ...   

       Yes, yes, shortcut keys ... not quite the same as having a "special" key though, is it ?

       At last. An embodiment of the fragrant smell of old kippers. Kipper lovers will definitely fall for this. Should sell like hot fish cakes.

       In my hand I'm holding a can of kippered boneless herring fillets. How is this possible? Because kippering is a process done to fish for preservation.

       Well, I'M not going to buy the mouse for USD$29.99 as I'll just cleverly buy the one USD$19.99 plus USD$10.00 shipping. I'm not stupid you know.

       I'll just take the shipping for USD$10.00.
