So now, phone handsets have been abstracted to a shape only, that no longer keeps any practical features of the original object, it's only a visual metaphor.

@pony looks more like going ever further back in phone history to me

@CobaltVelvet I have never seen anything with such an arc. Super early phones only had one piece serving both as input and output, but not there yet.

@CobaltVelvet Yes, but still, that Skype thing will go full circle if you mirror it...

@pony Why don’t they just use a banana or a pair of tin cans?
