Cover that keyboard with KB Covers #MacWorld

My family and I use the Apple Bluetooth wireless keyboard, both with our iPad and Mac mini, and it takes a beating. There are fingerprints, smudges, etc. I've been meaning to clean it, but when I saw KB Covers at MacWorld, I realized I could just cover it up! So I bought the rubber film that covers up the entire keyboard and adds a few advantages.

First, the rubber tactile covering makes it more comfortable to type on. Second, the white on black print covers up those smudges. And finally, I chose the large print option which makes the individual keys easier to identify.

Still, I think I'll clean that keyboard, and then put the cover on to keep it clean going forward!
