Why is the 'A' to 'Z' buttons shuffled without being placed on the keyboard?

When you start using the computer, at first it was difficult to find the letters on the keyboard. It must have taken a long time to write a line while searching for letters.

At that time, you must have been wondering why the letters were not mixed one after the other on the keyboard. How much easier it would be to type if the alphabet was written in 'A, B, C, D' instead of moving around!

But you probably started typing fast on the keyboard. In this case, you may think that typing the letters on the keyboard back and forth does not cause any problem in typing.

However, the history of the keyboard is linked to the typewriter. Before the advent of computer keyboards, QWERTY (starting with Q, W, E, R, T, Y) keyboards have been in vogue.

The typewriter was invented by Christopher Latham Scholes in 1868. He initially made keyboards in the order of 'A, B, C, D'. But the speed and convenience of typing were not what he had hoped for.

In addition to this, there were many other problems due to the 'keys on the keyboard. It was difficult to type 'A, B, C, D' on the typewriter because of the keyboard.

The main reason was that the buttons were very close and it was difficult to type. Apart from this, there are some such letters in English, which are used a lot. For example (E, I, S, M).

Some characters are rarely used. For example, ‘Z’, ‘X’ etc. In this case, you would have to move your finger across the entire keyboard for the most used letters.

Due to which typing used to be very slow. So after many unsuccessful tests, Qwerty keyboards came into vogue in the 1870s. In which the most used letters are kept close to the finger.

The Divorce Model was also developed as another model during these many experimental experiments. The model was famous not because of the "keys" but because it was named after its inventor, August Divork.

However, the keyboard did not stay in the discussion for a long time. Because even if there was no alphabetical order in it, it was not so easy. People liked the 'Qwerty' model the most and it became widely used.

Problem with e-passport application

There is a problem with the e-passport (electronic passport) application. Despite the Passport Department announcing the start of the trial distribution on Wednesday, problems were seen in the application system within 24 hours.

The service recipients have complained that the system did not work after reaching the stage of taking 'appointment date' under the application process. This problem has been seen after completing the process of attaching the photo of citizenship along with the demographic information, citizenship information, and contact details.

After reaching the place of taking the appointment date, it is not possible to choose the date now. Department spokesperson Sharad Raj Arun said that there was a technical problem in the system due to the high number of applications on the website.

"With the opening of applications for e-passport, the pressure of online service users has increased tremendously, so there is a common problem," he said.

In a program organized on Wednesday, the department had claimed that there would be no technical problem as the e-passport was issued after various stages of testing.

He said that the problem seen in the system will be solved by this (Thursday) evening. Currently, the department has made an arrangement to apply only for e-passport under general (34 pages).


Posts that appear on the Facebook News Feed can now be determined by yourself

Facebook's parent company Meta has announced a new blog post, saying it is conducting a new test for the content appearing on Facebook's news feed. The test is currently being conducted among a limited number of users, according to a blog post.

After the new feature is launched, users can determine the posts that appear in the Facebook news feed themselves. This feature will allow the user to decide for themselves which person's post to view more and which person's post to view less.

In 2015, changing the algorithm of News Feed, Facebook claimed to have introduced a feature that made the posts of its close friends more visible. In 2016, Facebook made similar changes to algorithms that made their own friends' posts more visible than pages.

In 2018, Facebook announced that it had changed its algorithm to determine posts based on comments and likes on news feeds.
