Inventor of Cell Phone: We Knew Someday Everyone Would Have One

by jleany - Jul 14, 2010


As I was skimming around CNN.com today, catching up on techie news, I found this awesome article called Inventor of Cell Phone: We Knew Someday Everyone Would Have One written by Tas Anjarwalla. I was fascinated as I read the history of the cell phone- which I knew nothing about before.

It was a  really great read- check it out…

Sales with Integrity

by jleany - Jul 07, 2010
