    Pretty cool :D

    I hope that by the time we actually get "time Machines" we are not still holding out phones to out ears to speak :)

    Doesn't look like she's holding anything to me. Towards the last frame you will notice that her index finger and her thumb folds in as though she was rubbing her hair. If there was something there, her thumb would not be able to fold in for obvious reasons that something would be leaning on it.

    We already have something like that...it's called Bluetooth. Unfortunately too many older people used it as a tool to look techy and cool that it became uncool.

    while very possible, why would a person be talking to themselves like that?

    Everyone tries to aplies logic to it, you have to always consider that if it is indeed a future device, current logic won't apply. some other peoples say that if it is a phone it wouldn't work since there is not network back them. Who is to say that that specific device needs a "network"? It is hard argue of what it is when you don't know yet what you don't know. :D:D:D


    PS: By the way, I am pretty sure it is something silly like scrahing hair, or the hearing aid device, however the other possibility is way cooler and more entertaining so I am going with it :D:D:D

    Not quite, since to use bluetooth you still need "a phone" I am hoping that when time traveling is perfected, Microelectronics is to the point that "phones" or whatever communication device we use at the time would fix completely on the size of small bluetooth sets

    So what about our emails and our apps? I guess it could somehow get grafted in our brain so the screen appears inside our eyes.

    Who said we will need "email" or "app", as i said, it is hard to argue when you don't know yet what you don't know. Maybe some type of AI is on the other side of that communication device that can transcribe your email? Again, hard to know what tech would he future hold, but we like email like people back on the day like "telegraph" now it is not use anymore.

    There would be no existing network or satellites to send bits and bytes.

    How do you know that the future device "needs" Network or Satellites to comunicate?

    so in the future they forgot how to be more conspicuous? Also is the ideal time traveler now a fat old lady?

    It's old lady, maybe she is "lost" in time... maybe she got distracted by the "Future" call, maybe her best friend is famous in the future because she got feature on a 1924 movie and she went back in time to take her place. So many possibilities. Maybe she is a "Model" in the Future... :D:D:D:D:D

    Looks like the "Death Grip" she'll never complete the call unless there is a bumper on the phone. :D

    OMG let's not get started on this here. There are plenty of conspiracy forums for this elsewhere on the 'net. This is getting play on CNN for chrissakes. Seems way overblown to me.

    While it's fun to see someone in an old film doing something that looks utterly modern, the fact is there are a handful of reasonable explanations that fit with the time, and chances are a billion to one that one of these explanations is the truth.

    The Siemens hearing aid is one. A pack of ice for her aching tooth is another. Or, perhaps she was just a mentally ill woman who walked around talking to a piece of wood held up to her face. Even that's far more likely than a time traveler from the future, strolling down the street talking into something that looks like a cell phone, in wide open view of the public. Um... no.

    You thought AT&T was bad now, think of the cell reception and trying to find a good 3G/wifi signal back in 1929.

    Right after the film ends she gets struck by lightning and sent back to 1870. Great Scott!

    CNN's online news site is chock full of questionable articles. It is hard to take it seriously at times.

    I don't mind mainstream media discussing the occasional UFO sighting and such, as long as it's potentially credible. This one is interesting but it's not credible at all in my mind, just interesting to watch and compare to today's point of view.

    That seems like a man, dressed as a woman. I see nothing about him that is women, besides the clothing too.
