Is a Backlit Apple Keyboard in the Pipeline
 
 

Yesterday Apple released the new 2011 iMac. It already got shred to pieces here, but 9to5Mac found something more interesting in the keyboard system settings. The new iMac have a setting for illuminate keyboard like the MacBook Pro laptops.

This finding is either a mistake by Apple or there will be indeed a wireless keyboard coming with back light feature. The main problem I guess Apple has with back-lighting on the wireless Bluetooth keyboard is battery life. Compared to the Magic touch mouse the batteries hold an eternity in the wireless keyboard. If that would change with back lighting, I would stay away from it. If Apple has solved that then I am pretty sure that a lot of iMac users would want it.

Speaking of input devices. When I got my iMac last year I also got the Magic Touch Pad. I totally not adopted it. I love though the magic mouse and its gesture support.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
