Keyboards Are Disgusting

fredr1k writes " A test carried out by Pegasus Lab on account for Swedish magazine PC För alla showed that a normal PC keyboard was infected by more bacteria than a normal toilet seat. More specific it contained 33000 bacteria per square centimeter, compared to 130 on a ordinary toilet seat. The tests also showed occurrence of up to 3100 fungi per square centimeter." Also note that unless you read Swedish, you still have plausible deniability when asked to windex yours.

This is probably true. If you've had a keyboard for over a year, lift it up tothe light and see if you cna spot the chunks of dirt between the keys. Just about every keyboard I've seen corroborates this article.
