    Came across this on Youtube unless your a big time phone geek, you probably won't like this video. He makes some very interesting points,Also goes into the history of the cell phone. 99% of people don't even know who this guy is,but they should.

    Great find! I really enjoyed the entire discussion. I'm also amazed at how well Marty Cooper presented himself - the guy is 80 years old!

    How would you like to own one of those prototype cell phones he made? 2 Lbs and a battery lasting only 20 minutes.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Regards.
