    I forgot the name of the keyboard and the manufacturer, but a few months ago I read about the release of a keyboard with tiny liquid crystal displays on each key. It was simply on/off liquid crystals, similar to what you find in a digital wristwatch, but the resolution was pretty ‘decent’. I think this keyboard would be the best, due to the amount of shear amount of custom configuration one can do in Final Cut (down with Avid!). Has anybody else seen this keyboard?

    Bella USA makes a great keyboard with a Jog/Shuttle built in.

    Speaking of keyboards, I’ve got just the simple Apple FCP keyboard, and it’s close to 3.5 yrs old. It’s working fine, but it’s dirty as h*ll. I thought I remember hearing that with Apple’s usb keyboards you can stick them in the dishwasher (make sure it’s cold water) and clean it that way. I don’t have a dishwasher, does anyone have any tricks to cleaning them?

    Since you don’t have a dishwasher, do you have a pressure washer? If not, just duct tape the keyboard to the roof of your car and go through a car wash.

    Then when you buy your new keyboard you can use these ideas:,aid,112041,00.asp
