So, I was considering not getting a land-line at all for my new apartment. I've got TWO cell phones, after all - and I'll have high-speed internet access for free from work, that doesn't require a phoneline. So, why bother? I'll tell you why. So I can have one of these! ThinTronix In particular, check out the phone. It's a poster you hang on your wall that functions as a phone. Sooooo cool!
