People Still Addicted To Pagers

from the obsolete-this dept

While many people think that beepers or pagers or whatever you call them are now quite obsolete thanks to mobile phones, there are plenty of people who absolutely refuse to give them up. I never saw the appeal of one after getting a mobile phone – but the article does bring up a bunch of reasons why pagers are still useful to some people. Of course, it’s a dwindling number, which has caused many companies (including Motorola – who makes most of the beepers out there) to leave the business.
