THE TALENT BEHIND OPEN:
For those hours you're at work, slaving away for the
"good of the company", you can use the digital
answering machine to catch calls from people you
didn't want to talk to anyway. When you're at home,
use the 900 MHz cordless phone to catch a call from
your boss, who you didn't want to talk to anyway. What
could be better?
