Give Me A Sign

Posted By Snow at 10/07/2010

Do you understand me?
ألا تكلم الناس ثلاثة أيام إلا رمزا واذكر ربك كثيرا وسبح بالعشي والإبكار [Q3:41]

Hi friends! Have you heard... Alexander Graham Bell wanted to help the deaf. So he experimented on sound & discovered the telephone! Still, I'm sorry if my question is too much - but do the deaf even use the old telephone? Haaa haaa... OK never mind... bcoz now we have video cellphones & SMS. الحمد لله

After Alexander discovered the telephone, the telephone network is built across the world to send sound. Then this network is added with the modem to send data (& called the internet). Then the network became wireless & you can play the tablet while walking around.

Alexander also discovered the photophone, which sends sound on a beam of light. This pioneered the fiber optic communication & you can now download data from the internet in a blink of an eye, bcoz light travels very fast.

from New York to Chicago in 1892

Loving The Deaf & Hard Of Hearing

OK Alexander is not deaf, but his mother was deaf. والله أخرجكم من بطون أمهاتكم لا تعلمون شيئا وجعل لكم السمع والأبصار والأفئدة لعلكم تشكرون [Q16:78] & he even married a deaf woman, Mabel Gardiner Hubbard - as a wedding gift, he gave her almost all of his shares in the newly created Bell Telephone Company. It's the company that would become AT&T - the 13th largest company in the world as listed by Forbes in 2010.

& after his passing 88 years ago, AG Bell lives on - aiding the deaf & hard of hearing. الحمد لله

If I get this right, although telephone equipment was designed for carrying sounds, the technology evolves to many other uses.

E.g: The internet. When you access the Internet, your computer connects to another computer somewhere else on earth, via your telephone line. Historically, bcoz the telephone line is already in place globally before the internet, so the internet simply builds & works on that. Only, it needs a modem - to exchange data from your computer to a signal on the phone line.

Only Allah Knows Best. والله أعلم

Bell also achieved the "photophone" - a device which transmits sound on a beam of light. This was the precursor of the present fiber optic communications.


Welcome
Peace be upon you
