Most still say "dial" the phone number and don't know why.

Crap, you're right.

I barely remember rotary phones. But the phrase remains.

I remember calling "time" on my grandfathers rotary phone every morning to set the watches to.

No surprise that he flew in the Mighty 8th.

I actually saw a car phone in a Mustang this week. Reminded me of Danny Devito.

Dialing is still defined as entering a number on the phone. It may harken back to the rotary dial, but the definition still applies to touch-tone phones too.

How many "hang up" a phone anymore? And what the hell is that little square icon that stands for "SAVE" on computers? xP

A 'rotary phone', was what everyone kept in the hallway to beat intruders to death with.


Oh, and you could also use it to 'decon' the interior of the house before DIY remodeling was 'in'.
