The same thing happened 75 years ago when
the phone company went away from operators handling every call to
customers being able to dial their own (using, gasp, a rotary dial) and
they had to introduce new terms and teach people what a dial tone was,
what a busy signal was, and what a ring tone was.

---------------------------------

Funny thing is, we're still using one piece of telephone-related jargon
that's now out of date -- the word "dial." I don't think anybody uses
rotary-dial phones anymore, and I'm waiting for my daughter to ask me
why they call it "dialing" when you're actually pushing buttons.
