The Oh S*** Button

While your computer does in fact have a “control” button, an “option” button, and even a “command” button, a dude named Greg thought that Steve Jobs left the keyboard half-finished, one button shy of the full power center. The computer, it seems, lacks a Very Serious Button for when things go horribly wrong. Compatible with any USB device and requiring no external drivers, you can configure this plug-and-play button to act as a certain key, perform a sequence of keystrokes, or lower the portcullis.  If the “OH S***” isn’t quite your style, you can select a different label like “EJECT,” “DISLIKE,” “PANIC,” “FIRE,” or “STAGE.”
