Wrong things that shouldn't still exist Department:

Your PC keyboard probably has (or had, if you don't have a PC any more), a numeric keypad at the right of the keyboard. You probably never used it. Nobody uses them except accountants, and most of us aren't accountants.

But that keypad is there, sitting right in the middle of your desk, uselessly in the way, taking up the most prime, useful part of your work area.


Why do the millions and millions of existing keyboards take up the millions of middles of people's desks with a feature that will probably never be used?
