I read an article this week talking about the death of the landline in Australian homes. Seriously, didn't landlines use die out years ago? The hot new take on this topic is whether you need to be paying for phone calls at all.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you haven't already, it is time to join the revolution. Recent findings from research group Telsyte revealed that over half of Australian phone owners have ditched phone plan contracts and now use BYO phone plans.
