Have you seen the "Time Traveler Movie" with a "cell phone" from a 1928 film clip?

Have you seen the "Time Traveler" with a "cell phone" from a 1928 film clip? Seems like a very interesting discussion going on about it....and, what you see here..

If it was a time traveler who would she be talking to?

That's also not how you hold your phone. There are a number of explanations.

Note, she's in a highly populated area, walking around talking to herself, someone would have said something, like, "Hey, what's that?"

Here's a pic of a 1920 ear trumpet.

Why? It's 2011 and I'm still shocked by the technology. If it was 1928, I would have started screaming with excitement.

Interesting! That's pretty creepy, or maybe just a coincidence - but either way, entertaining!
