Have I Reached the Party to Whom I Am Speaking?

When you finish reading this blog I want you to call someone and say, “Mr. Watson, come here, I need you.”

They may hang up, thinking it’s a wrong number, or worse, a crank call.

Or, they may get it. The request was the first telephone call and it happened on March 10, 1876.

Alexander Graham Bell could not have imagined what his invention has evolved into. iPhones, Palm Pilots, phones that play music, wake us up, play games, serve as calendars, let us text each other and, with the variety of apps, allow us to perform thousands of functions.

Thanks, Dr. Bell.
