    Same here. Every time we get new ones, they go directly to the recycle bin.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    And there used to be just one. Now there are several.
    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.

    Haven't had a land line in Utah for about 15 years. Haven't bothered with a phone book of any kind for about 5. At my place in the Dakotas it is different, most businesses don't have much of an Internet presence, and cell coverage at the farm house is both marginal and intermittent, so I have and use both.
    That's just, like, my opinion, man...

    Pure corporate greed.

    At least back in the day, when the local mini lab owner looked at your pictures, it was only slightly creepy - this is just out and out greedy

    I teach social research methods and we talk about the difficulty for researchers now that people are disconnecting landlines. How to get a balanced phone survey when large sections (it used to be just the 'young' and 'poor')have no land line?

    I have a friend who used to be a printer at a large pro photo outfit and he'd always bring home prints of weirdos, glamour shoots, etc. He had a wall full of them.

    They didn't back down, they were just mis-interpreted.
