The Cell Phone Turns 40

Forty years ago today, Motorola engineer Martin Cooper stood out in front of the New York Hilton in Midtown Manhattan and made the very first call on a mobile phone. The scene, while revolutionary, would seem comical to us now: the phone, a Motorola Dynatac, weighed over two pounds, was nearly a foot long, and only delivered 20 minutes of battery time.

Just four decades later, cell phones, and now smartphones, live in the pocket or purse of nearly everyone in the United States. Our phones tell us the time, give us directions, take pictures, entertain us and help us exercise, all while making it possible to post each and every sordid detail to the internet without going anywhere near a computer.

Re: The Cell Phone Turns 40

My cell phone malfunctioned today. It's a dear phone I've been using without glitch for more than 10 years. I hope it was just an electronic hiccup!

We've been having problems with the landline all year, so that's really great! :x
