I can't bring myself to use a wireless keyboard.  I just don't like the 
idea of broadcasting my passwords out to anyone within listening 
distance.  Wireless mice don't bother me so much; there is only one site 
I use that uses a clicky password, and even then you have the option of 
using the keyboard or clicking on the numbers.

I can see a use case for wireless keyboards as a MythTV remote, but 
that's a particular use case where passwords are not typically needed.
