Everything old IS new again – in PHONES!

Today I saw a traditional-looking handset that plugs into a mobile phone to “make talking more comfortable.” Don’t believe me? Go to www.ThinkGeek.com and look for “retro phone handset.”

Ha! I knew it would come around again. It was only a matter of time because scrunching little flat cell phones between your neck and shoulders is NOT comfortable and will eventually hurt you (among other issues).

Back in the late 80’s, waaaaay before the little cell phones became all the rage, I told those design majors at RIT that this would be a problem – they did not believe me and kept saying how cool it looked and they did not see how this would be a problem. Ah, how foolish and short-sighted we are when we are young – such hubris.

[BTW, these are the same kids who, when assigned to design foam core models of homes that would be suitable for a retirement community, all had models with sunken living rooms, spiral staircases, bi-level living rooms and the like. But the worst part was that the professor gave them “A’s” – for what?!? Quality of work? Certainly not for appropriate design.]

Vindicated! Everything old is new again! RETRO RULES!

In honor of this observation I have posted the video “Everything Old is New Again.” Have fun listening.
