1,000,000

Why don't we group digits together in groups 4;

100,0000

Or since we use a base 10 numbering system, why not 5 or 10;

10,00000 or 1,0000000000

Is there something magical about the number 3 or is it just used because its easy to count? Why we're on the topic, why do we say 1 million is 1,000,000? Why isn't 1 million 1,000,0000?

If you haven't figure it out yet, I'm procrastinating from doing my homework.
