cgraves67: I'm kind of concerned about my children's generation when they get to the workplace. There will be this weird deskset covered with buttons and intercom features and maybe even curly wires still. They won't know what the heck to do with it because the only phones they ever knew growing up were little rectangles of plastic and glass with a computer and a camera inside.
mayIFark: With Skype, a home phone is $3/month and all you would need is a one time charge to buy a handset. Since all houses has internet, I don't understand why would anyone have home phones (unless you are in an area where the only way to get internet is dial up).
