Peripherals through Osmosis: The New Cyber Era

I recently had a conversation about peripherals and something got me thinking.

See, we were both complaining about our peripherals dying and how we’ve worn the finish off with the sweat of our palms from such constant usage.

What, uh, happened to the finish? Did we absorb it? I don’t see anywhere.  Where are all those chemicals?


My trackball? Has no logo anymore. That whole area is pretty much black because I’ve worn off that dark silver finish. My keyboard palm rest? The whole left side is worn. It’s not shinny anymore. She complained about having to go through keyboard after keyboard because of the wear and tear she puts on them, like missing letters.

Over time, you got to wonder… By now, she must have the whole alphabet flowing through her bloodstream.
