The Daily Ping

Not a toilet in the country has not been affected by the Ping in one way or another.

There’s Cellular in My Landline!

Finally, finally there appears to be a phone manufacturer that gets it.

As you may know, I’ve waxed about bad phone design before. I think that phones in general, including cellular, are rather clumsy to use largely due to their size. Landline phones are starting to get more and more like cellular phones which is both good and bad. Bad because, well, these things aren’t super comfortable for long conversations.

But good because of stuff like this. Uniden has essentially taken features from a cell phone and slapped ’em into a landline. Bluetooth, wallpaper, ringtones, walkie-talkie mode… it’s pretty much all there. And the design isn’t the most horrific in the world – a plus.

It’s nice to see companies acknowledge that some people still use landlines, although it’s generally on the decline.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
