Do any slashdotters use a scientific calculator with 1-2-3 on the top row? I've already scraped and resoldered my Casio fx-82 calculator to have 1-2-3 on the top, and remapped the numpad in Kubuntu, but if there exist any calculators like this already on the market I'd buy two."

  • It will be a lot easier to get a phone with a reverse keyboard. There are plenty of dialer apps for Android, for instance. You could also have your computer dial your calls for you. Ideally, you shouldn't even be using a dial-pad. Either your numbers are originating from the computer or from paper, which probably is going to be recorded, stored, and saved on the computer.

    Anyway, if you really need a calculator that works this way, it is called a computer. Just remap your keys...

    Learn about playing different modes and scales on a guitar and getting the muscle memory on those. You'll pick up keypad changes the same way much easier and it won't destroy anything.
