NPR Talks About Those Really Loud Keyboards Nerds Love

Martin Kaste at NPR:

Almost all keyboards made since the early 1990s are, frankly, no good. A tiny group of writers and hackers know better. They use vintage IBM keyboards. Ugly, built like tanks, and, most importantly, with a spring under each key, and which clicks when you press it.

This is from 2009, but I only just heard it today. A couple of people I know have been using those clunky things for a while now and I need a better keyboard. The old white Apple keyboard I have is getting very mushy. Was it always this mushy and we put up with it because we didn’t know better? It’s pretty crappy.
