THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first answering machine?
The roots of the answering machine
can be traced back to 1898 when Valdemar Poulsen, a Danish telephone engineer,
patented the telegraphone, which could record telephone conversations on a
world's first automatic answering machine was not invented until 1935 when Willy
Müller saw that Jewish people were not allowed to answer the phone on the
Sabbath and as a result may miss important calls.
Willy Müller's answering machine was three feet tall
and as a result, very impractical.
Dr. Kazuo Hashimoto, a Phonetel employee, invented the
Ansafone which, in 1960, became the first answering machine sold in America.
