The first phone call

You may be familiar with the account of the very first phone call placed by Mr. Alexander Graham Bell to his assistant, Thomas Watson, and those simple words which he supposedly uttered. You may not know that a transcript of the entire call was recently discovered, and it’s eye-opening:

“Mr. Watson, come here – I want to see you. . .Watson? I think you’re muted. Watson, unmute your mic. Check your settings. Are you still using those wireless earbuds? Try disconnecting and use your built-in mic. Ok, I can hear you but your camera is frozen. Reboot, Mr Watson. I said REBOOT!”
