Note the then new fluorescent light fixtures: http://www.telephonecollectors.info/index.php/browse/catalogs-manuals-educational-docs-by-company/western-electric-bell-system/publications-and-educational-documents-by-date/blr/11661-43feb-blr-p130-pbx-for-war/file 2) This article from Bell Labs Record describes cordless (console) based PBX's. Many of the principles and practices developed in those years are carried through to today. http://www.telephonecollectors.info/index.php/browse/document-repository/catalogs-manuals/western-electric/bell-labs-record/11582-63jun-blr-p237-pbx-consoles/file 3) After WW II, the 555 was a popular single position manual PBX, serving up to 13 trunks and 120 stations. Two could be placed side-by-side to double capacity.

For yours truly, it was the BlackBerry Storm, which was released half-baked from Verizon on November 21st, 2008. Let's say that after all these years, you want to re-activate your old Storm or BlackBerry Storm 2 (the latter was a decent phone) on the Verizon network. That will no longer be possible. A statement released today by Big Red confirms that the nation's largest carrier is no longer activating devices that do not support 4G LTE connectivity. https://www.phonearena.com/news/Verizon-will-no-longer-activate-3G-phones-on-its-network_id106697 -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ Message-ID: <20180717033525.GA2665@telecom.csail.mit.edu> Date: Mon, 16 Jul 2018 23:35:25 -0400 From: Bill Horne <bill@horneQRM.net> Subject: Kavanaugh's Nomination Could Be A Win For Big Telecom By Kelcee Griffis Law360 (July 13, 2018) -- As a D.C. Circuit judge for the last 12 years, U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has a well-defined record on telecom issues that has benefited large internet service providers and cable companies when faced with complaints that they have harmed competition and when they face zealous regulators. https://www.law360.com/telecom/articles/1063112/kavanaugh-s-nomination-could-be-a-win-for-big-telecom?nl_pk=f21e3e20-c2d8-490d-899f-1e657ec763e0&utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=telecom -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Tue, 17 Jul 2018
