That marvel of 20th century communications, the classic telephone call as so many of us have known it, is dead.

'The phone call died, according to Nielsen, in the autumn of 2007. During the final three months of that year the average monthly number of texts sent on mobile phones (218) exceeded, for the first time in recorded history, the average monthly number of phone calls (213). A frontier had been crossed. The primary purpose of most people’s primary telephones was no longer to engage in audible speech.'

'The phone call always was an invasive form of communication, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that as soon as a plausible substitute presented itself we grabbed it. What was the very first phone call, on March 10, 1876, if not an urgent human demand? “Mr. Watson,” said Alexander Graham Bell, “come here—I want to see you.” That Thomas Watson, situated in the next room, would comply was a given, because Bell was his employer. For the next hundred years, phones continued to boss people around. A loudly ringing telephone demanded its owner’s immediate attention because you never knew who it might be. It could be the president! Or news that you’d inherited $1 million from a relative you’d never heard of! Or (God forbid) your teenager wrecked the car and was in the hospital! Octogenarians still tend to respond to a ringing landline with terrific urgency, risking hip fracture as they lunge to answer it.' #NS

The kind of bizarre rumours & conspiracy theories being floated about Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton cancelled a North Carolina event due to "changes" to her schedule, but not because of reported "bizarre eye movements."

A 96 year old man who has voted 18 times before in Presidential elections, states why this is the most important election of his lifetime and why he supports Hillary Clinton.

Also, +The New York Times endorses Hillary Clinton for what they term as her intellect, experience and courage.

My first vote came in 1944. It was a thrilling moment for me, but not as significant as my vote on November 8th this year.

Chat bots aren't a fad which will go away soon enough. They are, in fact, a revolution.
