Funny, or sad ... in the 60s and 70s phone companies boasted about the
fidelity and robustness of their landlines, and now we need to put up
with the crappy cell phone (which sounds like shit, and drops calls
more frequently than a whore's drawers). Stereo systems were installed
and balanced to a room, now it's a $20 pair of ear buds on a phone
playing a lo-res mp3.

And all this when it is easy and cheap to create very high quality
stuff. Something is wrong. I figure that this is why we die when we
get older ... we just can't stand the BS that modern life brings.
