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.

Exclusive Coldplay EP at iTMS to Benefit Hurricane Katrina Victims -- In "Net Responds to Hurricane Katrina Aftermath" in TidBITS-795, Jeff Carlson reported on how the Internet community has come together in countless ways to help the victims displaced or otherwise affected by Hurricane Katrina, which struck the Gulf Coast of the southern United States a little over two weeks ago. To raise funds for the relief effort, Apple announced last week the release of a new EP by alternative rock band Coldplay, available exclusively at the iTunes Music Store. Apple, Coldplay, BMG Publishing, and Capitol Records/EMI will donate 100 percent of their shares of the proceeds from U.S. sales.
