Disinfect Your Keyboard

Keyboards, particularly those shared by multiple people, harbor huge quantities of bacteria. If you want to reduce the chances of picking up your co-worker's cold, you can disinfect your keyboard with disinfecting wipes. To avoid damage to the keyboard, be sure to:

  • Unplug the keyboard before disinfecting it.
  • Squeeze out any excess liquids from the cloth to avoid liquid dripping into the keyboard.
  • Don't let any liquid from the wipe sit for long periods of time on the keyboard.
  • Don't scrub the keyboard, just lightly wipe down. Rubbing too hard leaves behind more lint.
  • Avoid cleansing cloths that contain bleach.

It's a bit like the User Agreement for iTunes. I tried to download an app from my iPhone but before I could proceed I need to agree to the updated user agreement, which was approximately 70 pages of fine print - thankfully there was an option to have it emailed to my account instead!

Yeah, maybe there should be a requirement that end-user agreements must have a plain English version that's no more than X words.
