Calling Mr. Bell!
The New York Times is reporting that the trend of telephone calling--actually speaking to another person on the phone, listening to their voice, and responding to them, is falling off. Once a key connection between teen lovers, among others, the telephone is getting a more text-based workout these days, they report, in an article titled "Don't Call Me; I Won't Call You." Of course, there are lots of other things that people can do with their phones these days, so why call someone and listen to the random things they might say. Or not. Maybe they don't want to hear YOUR rambling, either.
