I thought of this one today when I was typing an email earlier. Why are the letters on a keyboard in a random order?
So the first keyboard ever invented was on the typewriter. Originally, the keys were arranged in alphabetical order which makes sense right? But the workers who were typing on them go so good at typing quickly that they would often break the typewriters. Which is hilarious. So the manufacturers of he keyboards decided to randomize the letters to slow them down and keep the machines lasting longer. Then no one ever decided to change it back even to this day with all the technology we have.
Something to think about next time you’re typing really fast.
