PALO ALTO, CA - Microsoft may become the MySpace of the tech world if it doesn't up its game. People are turing to Linux instead of Windows 7, and don't even go there with the Xbox.

However, Microsoft has come up with the smart enter key.

"We've noticed from group studies," said a spokesman, "when they were test driving our Windows operating systems, they hit the enter key differently for the different things they were doing."

The study found that, because most computer users were used to the enter button being 'send' or 'accept', most would often hit the enter button hard, before sending. This is just one feature of the new key:

- When hit hard, or triumphantly, it will immediately go to the 'send' or equivalent button

- When hit hesitantly in response to an option, it will make the page go away as fast as your CPU will allow it

- When tapped lightly, it will be a new line

- If wierdly or accidentally pressed, it will emulate the key that was supposed to be pressed. For example if you missed the backspace key

Microsoft are hoping it will be a top seller, with sites such as Gizmodo, and BBC's Click show rating it highly.
