New Phone

When was the last time I went to the store to buy a phone? When did it become such a high-tech venture? Why do all phones look and act like mobile phones now? What ever happened to decorative phones? Does anybody still make corded phones? Why do 75% of all phones have answering machines built into the base? Why are 90% of all phones multi-handset 'systems'? When did all this stuff get so inexpensive? Am I an old man now?
