Young'uns today probably think we're joking when we say the first mobile phones were the size of a brick. From 1989. $1499 in today's dollars is equivalent to $3096.44. Damn!! Anyone feeling nostalgic, I'll paint a brick to look like a phone for you, just $14.99! ;)

Geez, I remember those 'bricks' - I was issued one at a post where I worked security.

Granted, it was a bit slimmer than the one in the ad (I could just barely fit it into my back pocket, but it threatened to pull my pants down! :-P )

Got good reception outdoors, but when I went into the buildings to make my rounds, I had to be near a window to make/receive calls...

Thanks for sharing :)
