For many of us, the time lady was something we grew up with. When your power went out or the time changed, you called the time lady (POPCORN for those of us in Northern California) and got time every ten seconds.
Well that service is coming to an abrupt end in September.
Citing changing times, a need for prefixes and old equipment, AT&T has been gradually phasing the service out, and the last two states (Nevada and California) are now set to be cut off.
I for one will miss calling to check.
