    Home security in the palm of your hand

    (BPT) - Did you know that more than 40 percent of U.S. homes have dropped their home landline phone service and gone completely wireless?

By switching to either digital phone service or going wireless only, customers are cutting their home landline phone bills in half or eliminating them entirely. The savings desire goes well beyond the home phone service and extends to other services including electricity and water services where customers are purchasing devices that lower their consumption.

Obviously computers have improved productivity by letting people manipulate data faster. But have you ever considered all the physical, hold-in-your-hands things that would not exist today without computers? Engineering and manufacturing would certainly be slower and harder, but there would simply have to be fewer things if people were still using index cards to keep track of them.
