Happy Birthday To The Telephone! (Video)

The first telephone call was made March 10th, 1876. When Alexander Graham Bell called Thomas Watson to say, “Come here. I need You,” he couldn’t possibly have imagined how his invention would evolve over the next 138 years. When Alexander Graham Bell called Thomas Watson to say, “Come here. I need You,” he couldn’t possibly have imagined how his invention would evolve over the next 138 years. We’ve gone from crank phones, to wind up phones to party lines, rotary phones, and now “smartphones.” Here’s a staggering thought. Your smartphone is actually a more powerful computer than those used for the first moon landing. If you have a smartphone with “Face Time,” you may not be aware that video phones were first shown to the public fifty years ago, at the 1964 World’s Fair. I’m dating myself with this one. I remember being on a “party line.” What’s that? Multiple households used to share a phone line. Imagine being a teenager in those days! This made eavesdropping on other people’s conversations ridiculously easy.  What’s that about the NSA?
