I have just gotten my hands on a Bloomberg Keyboard (Model CTB100) and it looks quite interesting... Its got a shed load of extra buttons (hopefully programmable), a USB port on the back, place for Microphone, Headphones, Phone Jack (God only knows why!) and a small LCD display. There is a single cable coming out the back of this, and it has a USB port, PS2 Connection, a port which reminds me of the old Commodore 64 Power connection (female) and 2 3.5mm audio cables (microphone and audio i am guessing). the port which reminds me of the C64 power is probably a power port of some sorts... plugging it into a standard Windows laptop does nothing... i dont have the power lead, but hope to find one soon...

Anyway, there is very little information about these on-line, and i am wondering can they be reprogrammed to work as a standard keyboard? I am a developer, so using extra keys for hot keys in Visual Studio or some other app would be very handy. any ideas?
