Behold. The Glory of Design.
These phones make me excited. They are nothing short of bada$$.
Of course, office equipment and supplies always have had a way to this girls hearts.
Phone's back in the day couldn't do anything other than phone home E.T. but they were cool as hell.
Smart phones may be able to give you access to all the info in the entire history of the world and as much cheap dopamine as your brain can possibly handle but they will never come close to anything like these gems.
No matter what cell phone cover or wallpaper I've tried; the beauty of design that old phones had is simply without compare.
Plus the fun part was, you could go out to play and leave the damn thing at home!
The design was all about form and color; and how they fit into our homes and our offices. Not our pockets.
They also were about function. The ability to connect people to each other. However, manners were mostly still in mind and we didn't call before a certain time or after a certain time. Nor did we expect each other to be available 24/7. Mostly, it connected us but didn't replace the real life time we spent together.
We knew we could leave a message but didn't expect a call back anytime soon.
I miss the days of the phone being more of a function to connect us on a high level but in not replacing the in person time that we spend together in life.
These phones also didn't include the ability to text either which I am becoming more and more convinced each day may be the downfall of humanity.
And when you needed peace and quiet....it was so much easier to give it all to each other back then wasn't it?
Right when I was on my way out the door of this blog post, I ran into the final image. Nothing like being lost in the woods and running across this old relic. The game of it all was, you also had to have a quarter in your pocket. Life was such an adventure back then.
You had to ask yourself a very simple yet profound question as you reached into your pants pocket with a bit of trepidation. "Am I feeling lucky?"
