Which Phone is Better?

My iPhone met its demise this week after about a year or so on the job.  It no longer held a charge and would shut off at the most inopportune moments.  Our IT team here at WFSB tried to fix it, but to no avail.  A diagnostic test at the Apple store revealed it had a “hardware” issue and it was time to replace it.

The telephones at our family cottage are in stark contrast to my iPhone.   They are old 1960s era rotary phones, that are invincible.   These throwbacks to a simpler time are much more than conversation pieces.   They are always ridiculously reliable,  even in power outages.  They don’t need to be charged or updated with new software.   Sure, I can’t check my e-mail on them, surf the net, or take a picture, but for phone calls, there is nothing better.

By the way, here’s a  great Christmas gift.    Retro phone headsets, that plug into your iPhone.  Very cool.
