Alexander Graham Bell may have jetted out of his grave this morning. The Washington Post reports that some relatives insist they are achieving ring-tones on missing passengers' I-phones!
Could any message ever be more vital than the first one he sent on the telephone?
"Come here. I want you!"
This is the very same message now ringing through the world for the passengers and crew of the missing Malaysian airliner. Bell didn't mince any words, did he? He could have wallowed in emotion, as current media do. He could have moaned and blamed the other party. Instead, he got right to the point. Hell freezes over until we solve this mystery: You are wanted--and right now! Come! Here! Travel to me via this vital instrument!
Now two major publications are reporting this startling development:
the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/vanished-malaysia-airlines-flight-leaves-relatives-with-anger-and-phantom-phone-calls/2014/03/10/fdb78642-a862-11e3-b61e-8051b8b52d06_story.html
the UK Daily Mail: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2578020/Why-cellphones-missing-Malaysian-Airlines-passengers-ringing-Family-members-claim-loved-ones-smartphones-active.html
And both report the same supposed impossibilities: Not only are some passengers' I-Phones ringing, but some QQ accounts register missing passengers' activity online.
Still missing, though, is any report of Iran's benevolent hopes for its apparent escapees, since the two passengers who purchased stolen passports did not want to call that country "home" any more--and were willing to try a space leap, if necessary, to get out.
So, will the I-Phones supply the clues that investigators need to solve this mystery? As the laws of physics dictate, every body--even an I-Phone--has got to be somewhere. Now, where there's a live I-Phone, is there also a live human being, even if s/he doesn't pick up that instrument to assure callers: Yes, Mr. Bell, my phone and I survived hell and high water!
