3 Things in Life are Certain: Death, Taxes, & Your Keyboard!

Nearly one hundred and fifty years ago, a company by the name of Remington & Sons created a typewriter which featured a specific keyboard layout; it would become known as the QWERTY layout because of the first six letters featured in the upper left corner. You may be wondering why I have embarked on this impromptu history lesson…well, as it turns out, what Remington & Sons did so long ago still affects us today. Just take a look at your computer keyboard. Yes, we have come a long way from the old days of typewriters, but some things apparently never change. You are using the exact same layout as the one first featured back in the 19th century. Apparently the layout is so practical that it has not needed to undergo huge alterations in these last one hundred years. :)
