    Default If you have a cordless keyboard...

    You may want to read this article:

    You never know when your neighbour will be reading all that you're typing in.

    I have 4 wireless desktop sets (keyboard and mouse). The range is about 6 feet. Unless someone deliberately sets a receiver within this range, the possibility of eavesdropping is pretty slim. There's a good chance of "urban legend" at work here.

    My hi neighbour, my however, name is is an wellhung avid and IRC I addict, would so like if to you meet sometimes you see for strange sex stuff appearing in my posts, you'll know why.

    Hmm.

    Remember the non-DECT cordless phones? They have such problems as well. This kind of things can happen.

    I highly doubt that. It appeared in a well known Norwegian newspaper.

    If you read the article correctly, you will see that though the specified range is quite small, the keyboards transmit data much further. Quite possible to make a mistake like this, if you ask me.

    You may want to read up on the US Tempest systems too.

    I think BlueTooth has a specific codec that transmit a unique signature that can only be recognised by the receiver that you are hooking up to. That's why you need a pass word...

    Hmm..... got the logitech wireless solution but so far, nothing queer happens
