The Model M springs back.

I heard this story on the return of the IBM Model M keyboard on NPR this afternoon, and (after being completely enraptured for the duration) immediately called Scottoway, who has given a similar disquisition on many occasions, and with whom I have a running conversation about tactile feedback in user interfaces. The story gets this well, and I was pleased to read the piece that accompanies the piece on the web site.
All I have to say, though, is that I need to buy one of these new Model Ms (made by Unicomp in Lexington, KY). Because — as I said to Paul in the car today as soon as the story was over — I need to write my dissertation on it.
