I do appreciate the convenience of cel phones. But god, the quality of voice communications these days sucks whale cock.
“Say that again - I lost you for a second…”
“Wait, let me go near the window…”
“Call me back later, it’s not working…”
This is when the call isn’t dropped, which happens all the time. So it seems the leap forward in convenience and capabilities of “phones” comes at the cost of being able to actually hear the person with whom you’re speaking. Land lines in the 70’s were way better in that sense.
I’m a person who is foolish enough to use my “phone” much more often for voice than texting or data, so I find this sort of depressing. We should stop referring to these devices as “phones” and call them what they are - small computers that can possibly, if you’re lucky, on a good day, make a voice call if you absolutely must.
Whale cock, I tell you! Whale cock.
