As FiOS was not yet available, I asked Verizon to install Wi-Fi and phone. The technician came out and installed a box, but he could not make the service connect. He said a Verizon team would come in the afternoon. https://nypost.com/2019/02/16/handling-verizon-wi-fi-woes/ -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ Message-ID: <E77419EE-79A5-40C5-9C50-AA536335D3AE@roscom.com> Date: 16 Feb 2019 20:00:41 -0500 From: "Monty Solomon" <monty@roscom.com> Subject: Smartphone society Smartphone society In a world where the smartphone is now ubiquitous, photographers capture daily life in which the personal device is part of the moment.
