    And so soon will be the house phone.

    …and that was the day that Nelson stopped growing.

    I just bought a house phone in case there’s a blackout. That’s the only kind of phone that’ll work in case there is a blackout.

    Sad but true, Arye. “Landlines” are a necessary evil.

    You need your landline to find your cellphone

    The stats are a year old, but only 50% of households had a computer. 80% of the households that had internet were on dialup.
    .
    Not every could afford to join the digital revolution, apparently, and the collusion of the telecoms in the early 2000s didn’t help by keeping back broadband.
    .
    Which brings up some questions: why is every outfit wanting to go “paperless” when the infrastructure is not in place? Why did at least two DVD rental places try to go internet, when it cut most of their potential customers? Why does every newspaper and magazine assume that the average person has fast, unlimited broadband?
    .
    Why has film development all but been phased out when so many people don’t have the ability to view the photos taken? What about the 50+% that use film cameras? And what about the lack of quality? I’ve tried three different digital cameras and none of them had the ability to bring an object or landscape into sharp focus. The things are expensive junk. Even 20mp has less than 1/7th the resolution of standard 35mm and the cameras can’t focus in any light condition. Such a deal…

    I am more comcerned with all these different waves the wireless devises are shooting out everywhere. They are not natural and something has to be happening to all of us. The eye doctors have to love the hand held devises with the super small print, for now they will have a steady stream of customers well into the future. The young ones do not realize the damage to the eyes.

    I’m not sure what country you live in, maybe Outer Mongolia, but in the U.S. 80% have internet access, and 75% of those have broadband. As far as your rantings about digital photography, anyone with a smartphone can view photos, immediately. And there are digital cameras that have rivaled film for quality for over a decade. The trick is, you need to be smart enough to read the manual to know how to use them.
