Since it was first invented, the telephone has gone through many of changes. The first
telephone lines were run on towers that made a city or suburb look very unattractive.
These days all of the cables are run underground. The first telephone was a very large
rotary type device. Nowadays you can find telephones as small as the palm of your hand
or even smaller - enter the cell phone.
It is Convenient
The first thing that people realized about the telephone is that it was a very easy means of
communication. There was no longer the need to get on your horse with a letter and
gallop down to the next street or state for that matter. You could simply pick up the
receiver and dial a number to speak to the person on the other end. In the earlier days of
the telephone, however, it was seen as a luxury. This meant that it was only installed in
houses of people who could afford it, or who had extra money.
Today, the telephone is affordable to almost everyone, it is the lifeblood to our economy.
Everyone knows that you cannot run a successful business without a telephone. This
device is no longer a luxury, it is a means to an end, it is a way to make you more money
and keep our economy thriving. It has also allowed us to create a new form of business -
namely the Internet i.e. e-Commerce.
Telephone Equipment
The telephone has many different types of gadgets, features and accessories that go with
it these days. If you are looking for even more convenience and uses for the telephone
you will need to take a look at a few of these:
Caller Identity: Know who is calling with a new caller line identity device. It is a tool that
you will hook up to your existing telephone or it is added by your telephone provider.
The device is made up of a simple LCD digital screen that displays the number of the
person calling you. This way, if you do not know the number, you do not need to answer.

telephone, the speaker phone is for you.
