The first trans-atlantic telephone service was established between London and New York on this day in 1927.

Composer Francis Poulenc (*1899) was born into a world where talking through a phone line between continents was pure sci-fi.
If someone would make a futuristic movie about it, surely actor Jeremy Renner (*1971) would play the main character. Or would it be Nicolas Cage (*1964)?

Modern-day composer and DJ Hardwell (*1988) grew up in the era of the first wireless handy’s. They were huge machines at the time. Yet only three years later, when Eden Hazard (*1991) was born into this world, they were pocket-size.
A fascinating phenomenon, technology.

Where would we be without wireless communication in today’s world? Just imagine Lewis Hamilton (*1985) driving his F1 race car with a phone line to his pit crew…
