Poor Man’s Radio


I stumbled across this by accident. If you want a radio in your office, just call a service department and switch to speakerphone when they put you on hold.


I don’t have a radio in my office, and my computer doesn’t have speakers. But my office has been filled with music for a while now 🙂

    That’s not a "Poor Man’s" radio. You’d have to pay for phone bill after all. :p

    And if people want to call you… 🙂

    @vbNullString:

    Only call 1-800 numbers

    @David Srbecky:

    Some people considor that a plus.

    Obviously, you are in the US. The standard European phone system charges per minute, regardless of where you call. (sigh, yes, things are changing, but the _point_ is that different parts of the world have different standards.) No, 800 numbers are also not necessarily a solution. Most +01-800 numbers are not free, when called from overseas.

    m@man – yes, I’m in the U.S at Microsoft’s Redmond campus (near Seattle, WA).

    David – I have to agree with DeepICE here…
