Yesterday, I was at Oakbrook with my girlfriend and we decided to check out the Lands End area at this old school Sears which has been in business since 1962 when Oakbrook Center opened. What’s very interesting, is this store still heavily relies on these older digital ROLM RP-120 telephones.  I heard constant overhead paging ...

My beautiful girlfriend sent me these awesome photos from a resort her and her family are at in Mexico.

Phone of the Day: Nortel M7208 at Marshalls Wyoming Michigan
I spotted this M7208 at a Marshalls discount store near Grand Rapids, Michigan.  I remember when this store opened in 2001 and I was surprised to not see Toshiba digital phones, which were Marshalls standard during the late 1990s, even under TJX Ownership.  TJX eventually integrated all TJX Stores to have Nortel telephones.  Fast forward ...
