If It’s Yellow

Have you used a telephone book in recent memory? We know we have not looked at one for at least three or four years.

Where oh where

With the convenience of 411 access using voice commands, the ubiquity of web access on mobiles and great tools such as Google over SMS who needs a book?

Drive by phone books

Further, it seems to us that the indiscriminate dumping of phone books inside apartment buildings (counted ~300 at a family friend’s apartment lobby—the books have been there more than three months), delivering two or more in urban areas, and using drive-by in rural areas is a completely stupid environmental action.

Bin there, dump that

What do you do with white/yellow books you do not need? Us, we toss them in the blue bin. Someone ought to tell the companies that produce them—or maybe the folks who advertise in them.
