The way we use our telephones has truly been about revolution. At first it meant to get calls you had to be home when someone called to answer, but as our lives began to take on different uses and functions so did our convinces, and now we made the calls come to us... no matter where we are.
It gave us more freedom. Didn't allow the use of the object to hold us back, but we made devices to bring it along with us. Our lives were no longer put on hold for waiting on calls. We were freed in a small kind of way... or maybe in a huge way... You decide. I know what my answer is.
