Verizon outage borks phones, TVs, internet for hapless East Coast folk


...And still no power

so unless you have a generator to charge up your phone you can't make a call anyway. Yep that's why I'm in the office: electricity, internet, and COFFEE. No electricity for 2 - 3 more days they say. (What happened to the big discussion about burying cables that happened after Hurricane Sandy?)

El Reg and all of you commenters have made me smile in the midst of an ARGHH morning. Thank you.

Hmmph....I do not share my mobile phone!

I seriously doubt that 'many couples' share their mobile phones. I'm 63 and my hubby is 64 and we each have our own phone. My dad is 90 and my mom is 88, and they don't share mobile phones. (I don't even want to think about where my dad's phone has been - yuk!) I don't know anyone who regards this as anything but a personal device. It's mobile, so it goes where you go making it difficult to share. Yes, yes, I'm sure there are couples that do share a mobile phone, but 'many' El Reg? Says who?
