Wireless Keyboard Wackiness
The Register reports that wireless HP keyboards are a large security risk thanks to an over-reaching signal strength. Users in Norway report picking up their neighbour's typing on their own screen when both use HP's wireless keyboards. In responce to this HP has removed the security guarantee from their product.

"There must be 100 people in that area. It's impossible to talk with all of them," Wormnes told Aftenposten. "And that is not even the worst of it.
"If a neighbor wants to listen in, there is no way to stop them. I got a message from HP that another alternative was "not to write any sensitive information".
