It was 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell, a Scottish immigrant to the United States, was granted a patent for a device that intelligibly managed to replicate and relay the human voice via electronic signals. Overtime, phones evolved and today they have come to be among the most used small appliances in the world. In fact, most countries have more phones than people (yes, even India). Although phones were initially connected directly to each other, this system was eventually replaced by having central switching centers. And as you already known, today cell phones have become the norm. In fact, most cell phones are just mini computers. But those computers are a lot more powerful than you probably even realized. For example, your phone’s computational power is greater than that of the entire Apollo Space Program. That’s right, NASA could have easily used your phone to land on the moon. But enough of the fun facts, there will be a lot more of those to come. And once you get done with this list you’re going to have a much bigger appreciation of that little device in your pocket. These are 25 Crazy Things You May Not Realize About Telephones!
