The Landline is Dead

November 24, 2003 7:35 am | Product Releases | Comments

Ern Worthman, Technology and Editorial Director You heard it here first — the landline is dead I recall a similar prediction, oh, somewhere around the mid-1990s' claiming the demise of the paper office as well (same guys, maybe, but obviously they weren't editors). Well, as we say goodbye to another teeth-grinding, bottom line-sweating, technological year, I think the one most memorable, "epiphytical" statement tha...
