The mouse is a different story, I will not give up my Wireless Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer untill MS makes Mac drivers for their 5 button BT mouse, if that ever happens
If you check techbargains.com you may find a Wireless Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer, I did a while back, I bought 3 at $16.99 each, brand new, shipping included from but.com, and these where the Nightvision model, very cool /forums/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

But they won't even try to solve that problem because it wouldn't matter. The real problem is the power. If Apple put a USB port on there, they would have to have a big sticker on it saying "Don't plug in any USB device that won't survive on what's left of the AA batteries after the keyboard gets its power." Which is most of them. Apple probably doesn't even want to create the possibility that some bozo would plug a USB hard drive or scanner into that AA-battery-powered keyboard.
