@panzerlancer: True, but I would imagine your average family that isn`t going out buying a cheap 5-year-old computer at a secondhand store probably also isn`t spending money on a monthly cell phone plan.

What you just said is true but completely inconvenient. Now almost everyone has a cellphone and text messaging and texting google is free (standard messaging rates apply as provided by your carrier). That is convenient but the phone still is the most convenient for all.

>>Yeah well maybe they could use their money giving poor people the Internet instead of wasting it on printing thousands of books that end up being used as insulation in an outhouse.

"...the majority of people who live beneath the poverty level aren`t likely to have internet access in their home yet..."

True, but a large portion of those people have access to some sort of free, public library where they can log onto the Internet if they have their free library card with them.

@Zerocyde I`m not saying every number I try is like that, but sometimes 411.ca or yellowpages.ca don`t update their directories enough.

"The phone book can be useful sometimes, like when i need to smash a spider or something. I like the over-dramatic thwap noise."

Or if you need a booster seat for a kid.

"Too all those bitching about poor people affording internet....

Which comes first, the internet, or the computer?"

Xbox and a subscription to Live.

This pic looks like what happens every year in my one-person office.

"I feel pretty confident in saying that the majority of people who live beneath the poverty level aren`t likely to have internet access in their home yet. To do away with phone books is essentially saying, "F*ck You, Poor People." And this note comes off as saying, "I`m priveleged enough to use sarcasm because I assume the rest of the nation has the same resources as I do and all people can afford internet access in their homes." Typical white, liberally homogenized thinking."

Yeah well maybe they could use their money giving poor people the Internet instead of wasting it on printing thousands of books that end up being used as insulation in an outhouse.

vv You don`t do away with them, you just don`t make fourty billion of them and send them to everyone on the planet. Need a phonebook? Dial the "get a phonebook" number and they send one to you.

I had a thought though: what if someone did not have the internet, or the net was malfunctioning and could not for any reason get the information from 411? never mind, I give up.

a lot of cities/states require that the phone company deliver a directory to everyone, blame the government

I have a giant stack of phone books, about a dozen or so, but I keep them around because I do actually use them. Yes, I have the internet, but sometimes it really is easier for me to get the number out of the Yellow Pages.

Businesses pay money for ad space in the yellow pages. If they stopped paying money for ads, the yellow pages would cease to be published. But they do pay for the ads, so it will continue to be published until the older generation dies off.

"I don`t give a poo about trees..."

they`re the reason why we`re living, idiot.

i remember a co-worker from a few years ago hated trees and wanted to clear them all...except that when people do that they end up killing themselves. that`s how easter island`s ancient society got killed off.
