1. Hello, Can you hear me? Can you hear me at all? Gotta get the operator and make a telephone call!
To think in 1876, Alexander Graham Bell would invent something that today we couldn’t imagine being without: our telephones. We found this precious gem in our Digital Gallery of Bell opening a phone line from New York to Chicago…wow how times have changed. Now, within seconds we can send a message across the world and back again. 
So, this week’s Mustache Monday goes to Mr. Bell, who on March 7, 1876 received a patent for the telephone. Without him, we would not be completely absorbed in the smartphone phenomenon. Siri would not tell us how to get places, apps would not entertain us as we sit in meetings all day, and most importantly it would not allow us to communicate—without actually communicating!
