Now? My wife had to replace her clamshell and I had to replace my slider.
Err-- ahhh---- about that: The guy I was talking to was using a land-line, company phone when he called. It was an office line, I knew those numbers by heart. When he was done--- the line went dead and that was that. No accident caused by a flaky signal, no weak battery-- just poor phone manners.
I, too, am old. I remember the big, black, heavy bakelite phones that we had hanging on the wall, rotary because back then that's all you could get. Touch-tone dialing and push-button phones came out about the time I was in 3rd grade.
Quote from: mjmsprt40 on 2014-03-21, 20:09:10Phone etiquette has changed remarkably, people don't say "Good-bye" before "hanging up" anymore-- the line just goes dead and you're talking to nobody. I've had this happen even on professional calls-- the line is just dead because the other person clicked off and that was that.Non educated people without excuse.Here you have the opposite situation, you want to finish the call and have to keep on saying good bye, kisses, whatever, for half an hour...

Funny, I remember in American movies how they shout into phones "Hello, hello!" as if they didn't hear the dead signal. Was there any? And sometimes they beat the cradle of the phone and - voila - this miraculously restores the connection! What is going on with American phones? Is it just the movies? Or is it really the way NSA designs phones?
You hang up first.No, you.I'm not. You first OkDid you hang up?No. Waiting for you to.
Oh I can remember Tandy/Radio Shack. Here in Gt Britain it was known as Tandy and had shops across Britain including 2 in Glasgow city centre. But the chain the chain disappeared here some years ago.
I Feel Old...
I've even got me a new smartphone --one that works.
An iPhone didn't work?!
I assume you think all Americans are rich?
Thailand does have industry, it seems.
Oh, I should mention the NUBWO® A9 Bluetooth speaker which set me back about USD 20...
Like seeing the OS tell me that jEdit won't install... (Just needed the jre installed first!)
(But I still have Opera 11 installed!)
