On this day

in 1876, the Scottish-born inventor, Alexander Graham Bell, patented the telephone.

He must have been a bit of a showman because also on this day

in 1926, the first transatlantic telephone call was made, from London to New York.

I would like to salute him and Marconi because I have made my living out of mobile telephony for the past 18 years and it has led me to seeing a large number of wonderful countries and working with great people from even more countries.
