RIP Telegrams February 1, 2006 at 10:13 pm

Ran across this interesting piece of news today…

Apparently after nearly 150 years, Western Union has discontinued its telegram service. I’m only surprised it didn’t happen sooner; it’s a technology made obsolete by telephone, faxes and emails. I haven’t never sent a telegram in my life, nor received one. I did remember my dad sent quite a few in the 70’s to my grandparents in Asia. I wonder what future communication technology awaiting us.
