Because modern technology should never allow anyone the opportunity to be totally removed from the office…will a disastrous business transaction cause our phone-wielding businessman too much anxiety to enjoy a ball game?
Laugh at the exclusive features if you want, but elements like easy-to-read LED displays were bonuses to adapters of this early form of mobile phone. At least this user hasn’t caused an accident during the eastbound crawl on Lake Shore Boulevard…yet.
Preferring not to place his call on the Gardiner Expressway, this user’s drive takes him past landmarks that are still around (the footbridge from Exhibition Place to Ontario Place) and those lone gone (Exhibition Stadium).
