New Payphone

payphone-2515 New Payphone

Don’t know if you’ve seen these yet, but the phone company is introducing a new public payphone with internet connection and keypad.  There are still some bugs in the display, but I can’t wait to see how long it takes for the keys to disappear.

This is interesting…. I guess living where you do, pay phones are still readily available… Where I live (Western North Carolina), I’m seeing pay phones disappear rather than being upgraded to something like this. I think the advent and propagation of cell phones has about obliterated the pay phone business around here…

The best feature of these new internet phones is infinite regression technology which allows the user to call into the past or future. They haven’t quite worked out the bugs yet. Yesterday I called tomorrow to find out the lottery reults for today and got tomorrow’s results instead. Wrong number.
