Things that make you go Hmmmm?

phone.jpgWhy is the numeric keypad upside-down?

To explain the question, look at the numeric keypad on your computer – no doubt it has this layout:

7 8 9
4 5 6
1 2 3
0

Why do they make them this way up – every other keypad around seems to be the other way up

1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
0

Cashpoints, phones, TV remotes, they’re all the other way up – why is the PC keyboard different?
