The Next Big Thing.

Just like Woz's nixie tube watch.



A fun idea, but a 'thing'?

No.

Not even a fad.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

If you could find an old cell phone that required a suitcase, SOME people would jump on the chance and show off to their friends.



I remember working with people 20 years younger than me and they LOVED the idea of the HUGE cell phone - as a joke and I was still old enough to remember the absolute AWE that I felt the first time I saw one. I was feeling my age.

I wold not waste the thickness of the dial, just make it a haptic interface on the phone display instead of a keypad.

There was an app early on when the App Store opened that had a couple of rotary phone dialers.

I had two. One was like the pushbutton phones that aped rotary dialers, and the other actually simulated (LOL) dialing. One had to touch the number and then spin the dial around to the finger stop. It made realistic sounds of the mechanical rotations.

It was fun for awhile.

Agreed.

I will say I wouldn't mind having that exactly as is, but as a cordless phone.

It's not practical to carry around on my person as a cellphone, but I'd have a couple around the house for my landline (call me Boomer).

I have to apologize for my initial post being dismissive.

I've just read Rotary Cellphone and Making the Rotary Cellphone and they are fascinating. Truly fascinating.

This is some DIY on the -nth level.

I haven't read enough to know, or she may not have covered it, how it is that she made and is using a cellular communicator that isn't licensed by the FCC.

I have much more reading to do.

Married to David; I don't know about the cats.
