The history of the car phone, and hands free driving…

We have a heavy snow fall in the Tri-state area and I have time to do some surfing. Just came across this great multimedia clip in the New York Times showing a time line history of cell phones and how they got hard money. Check it out and especially the embeded old TV commercials for some of the first generation of cell phones and of course… a marketing “war” that involves AT&T, only back then it was against MCI (oh, i guess they are Verizon now…).

The timeline also looks at some of the warnings about talking and driving. Worth reviewing. Dont talk and drive in your new car!
