Old and new phones

Forty years behind - or just a heartbeat

“Did you know that 60% of the earth’s population still haven’t made their first phone call?” I don’t know when I first heard that claim, but it must have been sometime in the eighties or early nineties. Surely, the number was already old by then, but I’ve since heard it repeated several times, and long past its due date. I’m also not sure what the moral of such a statement should be, but I guess it’s meant to highlight the vast differences of standards between… uhm… us and them?
