iSkin MacBook Sheath Reviewed (Verdict: Like a Condom—Safer, Less Feeling)

Remember those IBM clacking keyboards from way back in the day? And sometimes they would have a piece of plastic covering it that conformed perfectly to each key? iSkin unretired that 10-year-old idea with these Apple keyboard sheaths. These plastic sheaths sit on the top of MacBook, MacBook Pro, Powerbook and iBook keyboards and protect against liquids or crumbs getting into the keyboard.

Gear Diary took the sheath for a review and found that it worked fine as a slob food and drink guard, but slowed down typing a decent amount. My suggestion: go raw—it's better to enjoy your keyboarding experience than be safe. Or just don't eat or drink around the computer, pig.
