Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Apply Darwinian theory to Web use and the next evolutionary change to happen to Homo sapiens will be the sprouting of extra fingers to cope with ever-expanding keyboards. No? Well in its infinite wisdom Hewlett-Packard is to add a stack of new keys that will make it easier for users to jump onto their favourite parts of the Web without using a mouse. The new improved Internet keyboard will form part of the hardware for its new range of Pavilion PCs. The keyboard will feature seven new keys that will provide a link directly to Web content such as entertainment, finance and shopping. It will also be possible to customise the keys to create a one-button jump to just about anywhere. Snag is, you'll need more fingers to use it and even longer desk to accommodate the keyboard. HP's latest fiddling is part of a number of key alliances with AOL, AT&T WorldNet and Yahoo!. Reports suggest that the keyboard could be available next month. No one at HP was available to say when it would make its way to Europe.
