The most E >< pensive letter

You must be wondering, what’s the matter with the title. Why did I use “><" instead of the letter after 'W' and before 'Y'. Well, that is because my iMac keyboard is spoilt! The letter between 'Z' and 'C' on my keyboard is faulty. I can press it down but nothing happens on screen.

Sigh, I guess I have to buy a new Apple keyboard. I've been abusing this keyboard for 2 years already. Time for it to retire and let a new keyboard takeover. But the new Apple Keyboard is $78 lor! Wah piang. I'm going to spend $78 just for 1 letter? That is the most e >< pensive letter!!!

What to do? Will die without that letter. Cannot use the shortcut for cut too. I thought of buying the Apple wireless bluetooth keyboard. It’s just $20 e >< tra. But then, the only problem is that it doesn't have the number pad. I need the number pad. So too bad Apple, it's going to be the wired keyboard for me until you release a wireless bluetooth keyboard with number pad.

PS: Maybe I should stick to using this faulty keyboard. I only use that letter for 5 times in this blog entry. I think I can do with that letter. Stick with using >< or virtual keyboard. Wahahahahahaha. Kidding kidding.

    Jayden: I’m using a wordpress plugin call “WPtouch iPhone Theme”. But it only supports iPhone and BlackBerry. Thinking of finding another one soon. :)

    Oh ya. Actually I can copy the letter from somewhere, then press Ctrl-V when I need to type “x”. SEE! It works. :D

    try calling up apple support? I’m sure they’ll fix it for you, at a fee, at least it’s going to be way cheaper than buying a new keyboard

    If cost is a factor there are a bunch of Mac looking keyboards that will work. A simple USB plug in keyboard. The brand is Sensonic and distributed locally by McLogic. Can find at Challenger and other shops.

    Yongwei: Actually, buying a new one is cheaper and easier than repairing. Never heard of people repairing keyboard. :P
