    Andreas, you are not out of touch. 1984, or Brazil, are slowly but surely becoming reality in a few places. I fear that the world will forgo privacy, and liberty, for quite some time. I just hope a future generation will want to get it back.

    Must be some rich and famous people in the forum that I don't know about.

    Wouldn't the phone book be quicker and easier?

    All the white pages (residential) are now online only. All we get are yellow pages now. Must be great for older folks who don't have a computer or other gadgets or know how to use one.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    A lot of folks have dropped their land lines around here. Cell phone books don't exist AFAIK.

    We disconnected our copper land line at the beginning of the year. Of the monthly charge, 95% was line rental.

    Now we have a VOIP phone, which is a fraction of the price (actually nothing, because its bundled in with our internet).

    The funny thing is the other day, the telco dropped a phone book on my door step. I picked it up and placed it straight into the recycling bin...

    Don't you need to look up anyone else's number? Not having a landline phone yourself doesn't mean you don't need the book.

    Its funny, but you would think that.
    But All listed numbers can be found on the internet.
    I actually cannot remember the last time I actually picked up a phone book, either white or yellow. If I want to look something up, I'll just connect to the net and get the info.
