    china just skipped the whole land line thing and went straight wireless for the majority of their population.  there never was a landline infrastructure that covered most of the country so it's no surprise that wireless is the perfered method of communication.

      My land line went away a few months back.

      Next up for extinction - the desktop computer.

        I agree on the land line but desktops rule. So much for less money. More comfort, spaciousness, performance, you can't drop it or get it ripped off, everything about desktops is better than laptops except for mobility. Plus, look at the big screen on my desktop - awesome. Laptops suck. I have one and rarely even use it.


        Oh, did I forget to rag on batteries? Argh.


        Just remembered:
        China sucks.
