Celebrating 137 years of public telephone

Today is the birthday of good old Ma Bell:

The Bell Telephone Company, a common law joint stock company, was organized in Boston, Massachusetts on July 9, 1877, by Alexander Graham Bell's father-in-law Gardiner Greene Hubbard, who also helped organize a sister company — the New England Telephone and Telegraph Company. (Source Wikipedia)

It constantly amazes me that we have come so far from Bell's original design to HD voice, fiber to the home, the internet, mobile phones, smart phones, and VoIP.

In so little time we have gone well beyond anything that could be imagined by the science fiction authors, some of whom influenced the current tech trend.

To please take a min. to think of good ol'Ma Bell and all her children (legitimate or otherwise) that bring you this post today.
