Why are numeric keypads (like on the right of your keyboard) upside-down compared to the keypad on a phone?

Numeric keypads on keyboards and ATM machines have "7 8 9" as the top row, whereas keypads on telephones have "1 2 3" on the top row. Both seem to have 0 on the bottom. I know the arrangement of keys on a phone comes from the two tones that combine to make it a "touch-tone phone", but this still doesn't answer my question as to *why* they are not the same. Has anyone else noticed this and/or been annoyed by it? Am I alone?

ipod touch or enV phone?

I just got my paycheck of $250.. (i'm 16) my parents are letting me choose between an ipod touch(8gb) or the enV phone (verizon phone with qwerty keyboard). The thing is, had a video ipod stolen two weeks ago.. so i really need a new one. buttt, i didn't have a problem before. I was almost positive i would get the enV phone... i already have a phone but i was thinking about getting a new one.

what would you choose?
