And while the incidents were costly and albeit embarrassing, the real burn was that they were completely preventable… both of them. And don’t go denying your own close calls, that soda stain near your keyboard’s escape button is an ever present reminder that you too once came thisclose to your very own technological travesty.

The new Cherry Initial keyboard provides 10 million keystroke durability and resistance to liquid spills. The Initial’s flat, modern design integrates a numeric keypad and 5 multimedia hotkeys, including volume control and play/pause for a uniquely high-function keyboard.
