Apple has released a firmware update for 2007 aluminum Apple keyboards. The update improves battery performance when using the Apple Wireless Keyboard in conjunction with other Bluetooth devices such as the Magic Mouse or some Bluetooth headsets. It also fixes an issue that occurred with both the regular and wireless keyboard wherein keys could repeat randomly when typing. More information, including installation instructions, is available on Apple's Web site. The update is available via Software Update and the Apple Support Downloads page. (Free, 1.52 MB)
Viewing Wi-Fi Details in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, hold down the Option key before clicking the AirPort menu. Doing so reveals additional technical details including which standards, speeds, and frequencies you're using to connect, as well as what's in use by other networks. With the Option key held down and with a network already joined, the AirPort menu reveals seven pieces of information: the PHY Mode, the MAC (Media Access Control) address, the channel and band in use, the security method that's in use, the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) measurement, the transmit rate, and the MCS Index. In Leopard, some, but not all, of these details are revealed by Option-clicking the AirPort menu.

if it isn't the correct keyboard or wahtever, will I be alright?
I dread what happened a few years ago with an MacOS updater that killed my OS totally, wiping out my harddrive.
I'd definitely call Apple and see what they can do for you, or go to an Apple Store if that's easy.
I am OK. The updater finally stopped and explained "Update did not complete."
"Please reconnect the keyboard and try again."
I have the status bar going forever!
It says do not interrupt, but it isn't kicking into gear either.
Can I stop it and try again? What will happen? Will it kill my OS?
