I miss telephones on which you could be sure you had a connection that wouldn’t drop randomly and on which you could actually hear what someone said to you and know they could hear you, too. “Can you hear me? Hello? Are you still there?” It’s like 1915 all over again, only without wires or accountability.
We have all this fancy equipment … but you can’t be sure that a simple phone call will go through. What’s wrong with this picture?
