Get your Batman fix with the Red Batphone

Posted in Telephones by Nino Marchetti on February 7th, 2008

red-batphone.jpgMild mannered blogger by day, red phone wielding crusader by night. That’s the way we like it here at SlipperyBrick now that we’ve got word of a new red Batphone designed by AbleComm and available for sale for $112.

The red Batphone is inspired by the Batman television series from the 60s. While you don’t have Alfred the butler around to answer it for you can still feel like you are Adam West getting ready to suit up for crime fighting when the phone’s bright red light lights up and flashes to draw your attention.

Projection phone helps you avoid unwanted calls

Projection phone

The Projection Telephone is basically a house phone which will project the number and details of the call on the ceiling or wall each time there’s an incoming call. It doesn’t sound like a big deal, but can you think of a faster easier way to see that info? Even with the best phones, you won’t see a caller’s info that immediately. It comes in handy for those calls you would rather avoid. Once you see that the person who’s calling is someone you’d rather not speak with, just shrug and get back to whatever it was you were doing.

The power saving LED light will last about 100,000 hours, so you will croak long before it does. This one is all about convenience. It just happens to be very cool as well.

MP3 telephone recorder

The MP3 Telephone Recorder ia capable of recording up to 50 hours of conversation on it’s internal 128MB flash memory. The recording device fits between the handset and the actual telephone, and gives you the option of manual or automatic voice-activated recording.

Playback is in a non-standard audio format to prevent the unauthorised use by someone other then yourself. Connect it to the PC via USB socket and use a password to access the memory on the device. At that point the software converts the non-standard format into MP3 as the password decrypts the audio stream.

AT&T getting out of the pay phone business by end of 2008The once mighty pay phone is now going the way of the dodo as mobile phones are the way of today. AT&T sees the writing on the wall and is getting off the sinking ship, announcing today it plans to exit the pay phone business by the end of 2008.

AT&T said pay phones in the United States have declined over the last 10 years from around 2.6 million phones to a measly 1 million today. The company sees no reason to remain in this business any longer and “plans to phase out both public pay phones and phones provided under contracts at government correctional facilities through the end of next year.”
