A new Pager (beeper) – for a new era.

14 Apr

Everything that can be invented has been invented.”
Charles H. Duell, U.S. Commissioner of Patents, in 1899.

So start I my new post. With some nostalgia and a Stiod that is so stupid because of it’s obviousness, but also because of it’s greatness!

Back in the 1990’s mobile phones were not as popular as nowadays — many of us had no access to them in the early nineties — but many had fantastic pagers. A beep sent when someone tried to call you home and you weren’t there.

This utility has been overlooked since the alternative of calling your home phone and getting some voice mails from your answer machine etc. But it isn’t the same thing! It’s something else!

You will not need to call home, you won’t rely on the caller’s will of leaving a message. It’s as simple as a phone number register: You get a call home and you do not answer, you get a SMS, or a page (what is better) telling you the number who called you and the time – as we are in a more technological era, perhaps the info weather someone left you a message or not.

That is it. Hoping for some expert to hear my prayer!
