No more telegrams!

In the era when Internet is tour de force
Sending telegrams is outdated of course
So Western Union with a shrug
Has gone and pulled the plug
On the technology that was invented by Morse!

LiveScience 31/01/06: End of an era - After 145 years, Western Union stops sending telegrams.

Thanks Varun for the link!

    No problem Aparna. I read your newsmericks regularly and I thought of you as soon as I read that article :-)

    Btw Wired also has an article on this.

    Have a nice day.
