The story is too old to be commented.

Is that a pager in the list? Reminds me of that mediocre film, London has fallen

Do you mean White House Down? That's the one where the pager was used.

^ This. I think he's mixing it up with Olympus Has Fallen.

Some of these like VCRs for instance are all dependent on the level of technological and financial advancement in each country. Where I live, no one uses a VCR unless its to pull up cold storage archived stuff which also is slowly being converted to DVD format. As for pagers, it seems to be more convenient and more reliable than a cellphone sometimes for really short messages.

How short a message. Nah the cellphone is way better than a pager

Except that pagers are more reliable when it gets busy on the network, plus they apparently also work better in spots where cellphones have bad reception like in the lower levels and tunnels of a hospital (or bunker in the White House?)...

U.S. using floppy discs for its nuclear program is actually smart. No worries about hackers hacking their nuclear network and two floppy discs only last about a day (those floppy discs are easily bendable and the data gets corrupted easily ). All they need is to reformat the floppy disc numerous times

Really? Who use pagers nowadays? :P
