I suppose the Dick Tracy two-way wrist radio was a forerunner of the cell phone.

Wow all that "time" magazine!!!!!! It's like a time capsule, that is so cool. I have some issues of American Film that I found interesting from like the 80's, I love to look at the advertisments and pop culture.

I'm not sure I like my high school years refered to as "time capusule" >:(

You know, as I was writing the notes and talking about the purple copier thing, the first thing that came into my head was the "ditto" machine - and I typed that and then thought, no, that can't be right and I took it out.

Of course, most of the film Looker, which I talked about the other day, predicted CGI.

Nope. That was the next generation. First came the Ditto machine with it's gelatinous plate, purple ink and wonderful fumes.

Then came the mimeograph machine.

Then came the Multilith Machine (close to type-set quality).

<SNIP>

But which came first:  the Ditto machine or the expression "ditto"?

But I was very good at lunch, just eating a tri-salad - two little scoops of chicken salad and one little scoop of egg salad.

NO.

Walkie Talkies are point-to-point communications (radio waves through the air). Cell phones, on the other hand are networking devices - your phone goes point-to-point to a local tower (the 'cell") (mico-wave tansmission); that tower in turn relays your call over a complicated world-wide network of towers, land-lines, satelites and trans-oceanic fiber-optic cable. (All for a few cents a minute!)

Well, I'm bailing.  I want to get to work before 10:00am (which used to be my regular arrival time to work ::)) because we're having our monthly staff meeting, so I must sleep.  Good night, all!
