I went with some friends on Thanksgiving to a bar I never was at before.
The bar's landline phone was ringing often, I guess people wanted to
know if they were open on the holiday. Anyhow, we were watching football
on their tv, and everytime the phone rang, the caller's phone number
appeared on the TV screen. Below the phone number it either said their
location (city or town), or else it showed the name of the cellular
I never knew such a thing existed. How the heck does a phone number end
up on TV? That seems really bizarre. I asked the bartender how that
works, but he said he did not know. I did find out their tv signal is
from a satellite dish but that's all I know.
Has anyone ever seen such a thing?
How does it work?
