Where's that double-posting pic? ;)_
. . . what double post?
. . . and why would either of those protocol/interface adapters be considered a ripoff at all, much less a gigantic one?
What is your point? In is none of your business what someone will pay for something. If you think that it is priced too high just move along and go somewhere else. No reason to get your panties in twist over it.
I agree. I paid 21 dollars recently for a belkin 2 ps2 to single usb adapter so that my Model M ibm keyboaard doesn't get left in the dust.
I fail to see how that is a giagantic ripoff. Maybe a bit overpriced but nothing to scream about.
I was intrigued by the adb to usb adapters also. Nice way to keep your old solid adb keyboard (i forgot the model) hooked up to a usb mac.
I dropped by Big Lots a month or two ago and got a GE USB -> dual PS/2 adapter for $5.99, IIRC. Sometimes you pay more, sometimes you pay less. It all depends on where you shop.
