Very true.  I wasn't thinking "lots of work" compared to installation of a
permanent phone.  Effort for them is probably the same.

I do remember installing the CD changer and snaking the cables...-man-,
what a pain :-)

The voice-activated stuff is pretty nifty; even today, most pocket-sized
phones are just starting to get those kinds of features.  I still
chuckle when I remember hearing Igor was trying to get his phone to
"speak"(or understand) Russian :-)
