    PS: I was wondering how long it would be before someone stuck an iPod or similar onto a KB

    This would be a good prank. Imagine replacing your boss's keyboard at work with this. "DAFUQ?"

    Seems to be headed there... you could write apps to customize and control the keyboard, and perhaps even use the keyboard to type into the smartphone/tablet/whatever as well. Hmmm...

    This is not for pro-gaming for sure... When will companies understand that pro-gaming is not about flashy lights and gimmicks. Simplicity, reliability and durability over this please.

    Well why not? Not for me though, but I kinda like it. I like the RAT to, but that's not for me either.

    So this is a logitech G19(with touch instead of good old buttons probably requires a power brick just in the same) + microsoft spiderwinder x6 rolled into one ugly style profile? I do like some of the adjustable functions the designers have be doing for madkatz but i just hate their style it's so much like a 12 year old styled it.
