Phone of the Day: Garbage Analog Telephone at Hy-Vee Supermarket in West Des Moines Iowa
My friend captured this photo of this unbelievably cheap piece of garbage analog phone, definitely not meant for high volume grocery store use, at a checkout at his local grocery store.   While the POS is very sleek, the phone is not.   When you buy cheap phones like this, you need to replace them ...

Phone of the Day: Cisco 7965 IP Telephone at Buy Buy Baby Superstore Chicago IL 
Tonight my girlfriend and I were searching for christening gifts for her nephew when I spotted these Cisco 7965 color display IP phones.  Ignore the page button, as they don’t use it.  They walk around screaming into obnoxious headsets.  Why spend the money on a fully featured nice Cisco system when you don’t even use ...

My great friend from college sent me this pic of his Deskphone at work.  It’s the same one I featured from Meijer store 158 the other night.  It’s an attractive clean nice IP phone, enough said!  It will work on both the Aura and IP Office platform.

Today’s telephone comes from an awesome Mexican restaurant that my girlfriend and I visited last Friday night in the Chicago suburb of Arlington Heights.   You immediately walk into a very festive environment when you walk through the front door.  I had an amazing combination of a cheese chile rellenos and shrimp tacos.  The food ...

Phone of the Day: Avaya 4621SW IP Telephone at Meijer Store 137 Lafayette, IN
I spotted this Avaya telephone at my favorite Meijer store, the Meijer in Lafayette IN which I shopped at while in college at Purdue University. The store has seen a lot of remodels and phone system changes throughout the years.  It was super high tech when it opened in 1995.  The store had a new ...

Phone of the Day: Residential Consumer Grade 4 Line ATT analog telephone 
Spotted at a business in the city is this analog 4 line ATT “business” phone.  All I can say is that this is definitely not a Nortel, Cisco, Shoretel, or Avaya telephone. 

Phone of the Day: Multi Line Phone from Beavis and Butthead Episode “Hard Sell”

Phone of the Day: Multi Line Phone from Beavis and Butthead Episode
This has to be one of the funniest Beavis and Butthead episodes….”Hard Sell.”  The boys decide to take a job telemarketing and they completely mess around with the phones and cannot ask callers simple questions.  They also do know how to voice call intercom each other with a Star Trek quote.  Beavis also of course ...

While these Macy’s Central Midwestern location stores use ROLM PBX systems, the former ...
