CUT THE RIBBON: ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL

Posted on September 17, 2012 by admin

The first man who did a phone call was Alexander Grahm Bell on March 10, 1876. The call was to his assistant  Thomas Watson: “Mr. Watson–come here–I want to see you.” That’s what was said. Looks like incredible but that was just the beginning. If you happen to send a “what’sup” to a friend today, think about Mr. Bell.
