There are many reasons to redesign the keyboards, but when brainless designers, scientists or whatever they are do it the result is another pain in your fingers and headaches.
The upper number row on laptops is a hopeless example and make me wonder how Apple could overlook this through the years and still do.
When you use both the cursor and numbers when working then you need the old fashion calculator keys to work effective: If you combine your extra keyboard with a RollerMouse you have adapted to the use in 15 minutes. A brilliant solution both for your body and boss.
I introduced more than 50 people to the RollerMouse keyboard extension with 100 % success. All bosses applauded as the sick leave went down though I sometimes wondered if people brought them to the lunch room to make them stop working.
If someone at Contour read this they should send me a set for my contribution to their success by ordering hundreds of them.
I miss my RollerMouse…
