the red phone (not  ours)
ours is red
Boing Boing’s entry today on retro tech features one of the phones that we have at our house, but ours is red. We also have a “Jeannie” or donut phone and a couple of MacSEs. And if you come by my office you can see an Osborne and a Next Cube.

    The Ericofon was the first one-piece telephone. It had an early market in hospitals–how convenient if you’re bedbound! The “Genie” phone is a little different from the “donut” phone, and more elegant I think.

    By the way the bottom of our phone is a dial and not buttons as the white one has above.
