Posted in Mobile Phones by Darrin Olson on February 19th, 2007

1980’s Brick Cell PhoneSince the first flip phone came out in the early 90′s mobile phones just haven’t been the same, and it just wouldn’t be right if the Brick passed up reporting on this retro style 1980′s cell phone. A brick can mean a number of different things; solid and reliable, some gadget rendered useless by time or technology and of course a great big heavy cell phone that makes you taste pennies and forget your name after more than 15 minutes of continuous use.

The 80′s Brick Cell Phone model FY8850 is an actually working mobile phone replica that looks old but has modern technology. It’s unlocked and works on any GSM network (900, 1800 or 1900 but not 850). There is no wireless headset, Bluetooth, car charger or USB connection since that would just go against how this phone should be used. A large cell …

One In Eight Homes Does No Have Land lineAmericans are dumping their land lines for mobile phones. This alone probably does not surprise and you may wonder why anyone cares. Well there is a segment that does care: telephone surveyors. You know those pesky callers you get right about the time you’re about to dig into that yummy Tater Tot casserole.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), in 2006, one out of every eight households did not have a land line. CDC researcher Stephen Blumberg said that there was a trend towards fewer land lines in the last several years but it seems to have increased in 2006. The 13.7 percent of homes without phones represents those that have mobile phones and those that just don’t have a phone. The assumption is that many consumers are using …
