"The QWERTY keyboard, laid out during the early days of the
typewriter, when it was necessary to keep frequently used letters
at a distance from each other so the keys didn't "stick," but which

"Software that automatically corrects common typos, forcing you
to type and retype "teh," "aobut" and "mabye" until the computer is
satisfied this was your intent.
"Software that doesn't let you stop numbering items in a list,
even after the list is finished."
