Not having a chance to know who’s calling or not calling before answering brought mystery to my life.

Anonymity! Should we attend or should we not? Though a surprise, I’d hate it if it gets fateful for us. :|

And right here we have an ancient communication device used by our ancestors over 6 decades ago. Notice the primitive features.

“… and now here’s a device that people used to communicate that did not allow for texting, and required wires to operate… What kind of savage world did our ancestors live in in the 1980’s?”

The advantages: The battery never dies on you. You never get “no signal”. You’ll never lose it down the back of the sofa. No risk of a mugger stealing it. It doesn’t secretly track your every movement. If it rings when you’re at the theatre, it won’t disturb the rest of the audience and make you look an idiot. Your boss can’t call you when you’re away on holiday. You’ll not get junk text messages. No risk of installing a dodgy app. Guaranteed zero software bugs. It doesn’t cost hundreds of dollars. It won’t go out of fashion a year after you bought it. But, saving the best for last, … it doesn’t have an Apple logo.

What’s not to like?
