Phone of the Day: Siemens Analog Euroset 5010 Gigaset Telephone in Lucerne, Switzerland at Hotel De La Paix
My friend Chris captured this analogue telephone while vacationing in Switzerland.  This durable analog telephone was in his hotel room.  I don’t know what PBX is behind the telephone though.  I assume a Siemens?   Siemens had a brief stint with big telecommunications goals in the USA when it bought ROLM in 1988-1989.  See the ...

I spotted these various Nortel M2008 phones on the sales floor of the luxurious Saks flagship in New York City.   The newer Saks stores are using Avaya IP phones, but this location seems to be alive and well with Nortel sets, presumably running on a CS1000.

Upon visiting the World Trade Center 9/11 memorial museum today, we needed somewhere to unwind after the long interesting but emotionally exhausting tour of the museum.  We found Eataly on the southeast corner of the WTC.  We found the bar, ordered a few drinks and then found a good comfortable seat near the coffee shop in ...
