The NeXT keyboard had volume and brightness keys.

This casts Apple’s recent keyboards in a whole new light for me.

I originally saw this keyboard on Wikipedia, but Patrick was nice enough to take a better photo—thanks!

    Heh, if you’d like a higher res picture let me know. I have one of these keyboards at home. :)

    Patr1ck: That’d be awesome. Currently, I’m on the edge of copyright—that’s a GFDL image, and I’m just relying on fair use rather than complying with the GFDL.
