Please help me not to deafen my coworkers

I use a very loud buckling-spring keyboard which is apparently even louder over Skype/Google Hangouts/etc., which have recently become a much bigger part of my job. I'd like to find a more directional microphone that will pick up more of my voice and less of my typing. [more inside]

Connecting Multiple USB Microphones to a Mac Laptop

I need to find the best way to connect more than one microphone (probably two but it could be up to four) to a Mac laptop. I don't need studio quality but will be capturing voices and I'd like them to sound decent. The signal from the mics would need to be seen by Flash, for teleconferencing, and by the basic Apple OS applications (Quicktime, Garage Band, etc.) Is it possible to connect more than one USB microphone at a time, perhaps through a hub? If not, is there a simple external digital mixer that I can use? Is there an on-line store that specializes in this type of audio? And is the a wireless USB option?

Need a microphone that can survive high temperatures (~500F)

I need to amplify the sound of a carbon arc in a WW2 era searchlight. The mic will be inside the drum of the searchlight, about 25" away from the arc. The temperatures at that distance should be 500F or less. Are there any microphones that will operate happily at that kind of temperature? [more inside]

Will PS3 Singstar Mics work with the PS3 versions of the Rockband games & Guitar Hero: WT?

Calling my fellow PS3 owners! Do the PS3 Singstar microphones work with the PS3 versions of Guitar Hero: World Tour and the Rockband games? I have done some Google searching which has turned up responses ranging from "yes" to "no" to "maybe"... I'm hoping AskMe can turn up something a little more definitive.

Good field recording devices?

I am a sort-of musician (lo-fi ambient-ish- real marketable stuff) and I want to start going out into the crazy world about me and recording various sounds. I'm looking for tips on a suitable microphone for field recording and, just as importantly, a good (quality + convenience) digital sound recording device so that I can come back and transfer my sounds without losing quality.
