This is Thomas Edison. Thomas Edison is a famous inventor who invented lots of things that we use today. He was born a very long time ago in the United States of America.
From the night watch in Boston, to the present day policing, law enforcement has behind in the world of technology. As time rolled through the political era, professional era, and community-oriented era, police patrols would use the rapidly advancing technology in their favor. "Those were desperate times for policemen in a hostile country with unpaved streets and uneven sidewalks, sometimes miles from the police station, with little prospects of assistance in case of need.... It took nerve to be a policeman in those days," this was reported by Chief Francis O 'Neill of the Chicago Police Department in 1903. With only having a printing press and a multiple-shot revolver over a hundred years ago, the advancement in technology today has helped improve the policing methods in patrol quite significantly. However, technology would eventually out-run the police.
The telegraph quickly became popular between people that wanted to send messages over long distances easier and faster than ever before. The telegraph also improved ways of communicating across continents. The first telegraph line was laid across the Atlantic Ocean in 1866; later in 1940 40 lines were laid across the Atlantic Ocean.

There are different types of telephone systems, the range can be from simple hand held domestic telephones to switch board telephone network systems used in business organisations. The features varies from the type of telephone systems its you are using and the different types of the hand set features they have. For example the “ Call Waiting” feature is for if you are talking on the phone and some one calls you and you can put the first caller on hold and talk to the second, and switch between the two callers. You can have "Call Forward", so that if you needed to forward the call to a different person with a different hand set you can forward this call in this way. Finally there is the "Call Answer" feature which means that if you are on the phone or not at home then the telephone system will answer your phone call and take a message and play it back for you.
This links telephone and computer systems together so that when the telephone rings, a dialog box appears on the computer screen with options for answering.
Samuel Morse, was born in the summer of 1791 April 27, from a family of the Calvinist faith in Charlestown, Massachusetts. His father Jedidiah Morse, was considered a great pastor of the faith and a geographer, meaning: “the study of Earth and human society.” He was married to Elizabeth A.F. Morse and little is known about her. But on the other hand, J. Morse fully supported the American Federalist party, the meaning: “strong national government and creating friendly relationships with Britain.” So, this strongly influenced Samuel Morse’s education, and after graduating from Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. He attended Yale University, where he studied religious philosophy, mathematics, painting,
Even born in a small town you can accomplish anything. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was born on April 27, 1791 in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Samuel Morse was the first born child of Jedidiah and Elisabeth Morse. His parents really wanted Samuel to commit to his education, and his Calvinist religion. Samuel went to a mediocre school, Phillips Academy, for art, before attending Yale College. After he graduated college at Yale, Samuel wanted to have a career as a painter, but his father wanted him to have a more prestigious career than painting. His father arranged for him to be an apprentice at a bookstore in Boston. However, Samuel still had a love for art, so his dad allowed him to go to England for a better study

Before the invention of the telegraph in 1844 by Samuel Morse and his colleagues, news and messages traveled at a much more laborious and protracted rate. While businesses and individuals could communicate by interpersonal communication through
The telegraph was the first major advancement in communication technology. In 1838, Samuel Morse perfected and demonstrated the first telegraph machine. His machine used Morse code to send electronic currents along a wire, allowing the first high speed long distance communications. By the 1850s, the telegraph was widespread. In 1861, Western Union installed the first trans-continental line and by 1866, the first trans-Atlantic line was completed. At this time, telegraphs were all keyed by hand and transcribed from Morse code to English by ear. Fredrick Creed invented a way to convert Morse code into text in what became known as the Creed Telegraph System. That was in 1900, and by 1914, these automatic transmissions handled twice what a
Early in 1874 Bell met Thomas A. Watson, a young machinist at a Boston electrical shop. Watson became Bell’s indispensable assistant, bringing to Bell’s experiments the crucial ingredient that had been lacking, his technical expertise in electrical engineering. Together the two men spent endless hours experimenting (Paschoff 43,44). Although Bell formed the basic concept of the telephone using a varying but unbroken electric current to transmit the varying sound waves of human speech, in the summer of 1874, Hubbard insisted that the young inventor focus his efforts on the harmonic telegraph instead. Bell wanted to continue his work on the telephone but he complied. When he patented one of his telegraph designs in February 1875, he found that Elisha Gray had patented a multiple telegraph two days earlier. Greatly discouraged, Bell consulted in Washington with the elderly Joseph Henry, who urged Bell to pursue his “germ of a great invention” speech transmission (Grosvenor and Wesson 55).
As communication has evolved from Ancient times of cravings in rocks to pictograph, ideograms and alphabets to 1500 -1800 where printing was invented. Now for the 19th through the 21st Century communications is far more efficient from postage to radio broadcasting to internet which has become an important form of communication.
VoIP is a relatively new technology and so the benefits are just beginning to be realized. VoIP technology has the ability to completely change the telephone industry as we know it. Big changes are in store for the way we use telephones and this section will address some of the changes to expect. Obstacles still stand in the way of progression and there are problems that need to be addressed before this technology can take over.
Alexander Graham Bell was born on March 3, 1847 and was a scientist, inventor, engineer and innovator who invented the first telephone. In his later life, Bell did outstanding work in designing optical Telecommunications. Bell also contributed to other inventions as well, he designed a precursor to modern day air conditioning, he also contributed to aviation technology, and his last patent, at the age of 75, was for the fastest hydrofoil yet invented.
