Kooky Keypads

I don't know if the numeric keypad or the touch-tone phone keypad came first.

But it's pretty inexcusable that they aren't arranged in the same pattern.

Way to go, jerks.

The numeric came first. The most convincing theory for the discrepancy can be blamed on Ma-Bell's study “Human Factor Engineering Studies of the Design and Use of Pushbutton Telephone Sets.” - but really all the theories sound suspect and mostly I think they were trying to screw with your head.
