I was out walking the dog the other afternoon when I noticed a pile of Yellow Pages phone books underneath a neighboring business's mailbox. Clearly, these books had been left for the tenants quite some ago, as they were covered in weeds and had taken a beating from the weather.
This made me wonder when the last time was I opened a phone book. We have them - in fact we have a pile of them - but do we ever use them? I use Google or whitepages.com to find phone numbers online now.
In 2007, Bill Gates predicted the phone book would be dead in five years. We are here. Is it?
The Yellow Pages still gets delivered, but even it has moved online.
And what about the line everyone uses to describe an amazing actor: "He could read the phone book and I'd be riveted." What about that?
