TUAW Braintrust: What are your views on keyboards?

Over the last week or two, my keyboard (an inexpensive Macally Apple-style unit) has been dying a slow but inevitable death.

TUAW Poll: What's your favorite nano-chromatic color?

Apple gave us a juicy spectrum of colors yesterday with the new iPod nano, and I find myself wondering which color I'd buy. I really like the green and yellow, simply because they're bright, happy colors. I also like the Denver Broncos (or is it University of Texas?) orange and the Colorado...
