phone answering machines

phone_answering_machinesThe ubiquitous phone answering machines.  Just where would we be without them?

All phone answering machines present our callers with the chance of leaving a message when we are either tied up doing something else or plainly away from our base.  You only have to think of the number of ways it’s possible to contact us now….in the office through our business telephone systems, at home on our single line, on our mobile phone or more recently through our computer with voice over IP (VoIP).  Those alternatives are so the person can speak to us personally.  Then there are the electronic messaging services….email, SMS text, Twitter and Facebook (to name just two of the social networks).

We can switch off and let them answer for a while and then listen to the recordings at a time more convenient to us.
Initially all phone answering machines were analogue devices with a recording tape in cassette form that could be changed when it eventually wore out.  Now they are digital with solid-state memory chips giving much higher quality reproduction.  These attach in parallel with our everyday phone and kick in when the phone is unanswered.  They give a pre-recorded greeting then allow the caller to record.  When you get back there will be a flashing indicator alerting you to waiting messages.
