And then there's today's low-end PCs (like an eMachine I got
for the kids) where they went to the trouble of adding fifteen
small green keys along the top, labelled "Shopping", "Music",
etc. which start your browser and jump to whichever site
paid eMachines the privilege of being bound to their key.

They also added "Telephone" "Messages" and "Search"
buttons above the numeric keypad, along with two Volume
+/ buttons that raise and lower the Windows speaker volume.
The last feature is almost useful.

Want to make a million bucks? Make some big fancy
keyboards with retro analog controls, blinken lights,
LCD displays, reprogrammable keys, etc.
