Submission + - 9/9/09 First Computer Bug 2

Sooner Boomer writes: "It's 09/09/09. Besides being numerologically interesting it's also the 64th anniversary of Grace Hopper discovering the first computer bug. The moth was preserved in the log at the time. Computers have come a ways since then, and so have the bugs associated with them."

We're charged to receive calls because the phone system in America does not differentiate between cell phones and landlines. I myself find it ridiculous that you have to pay MORE to call someone, just because their cell phone is a number! It costs 2 cents to call a landline in Greece, but it costs 20 cents to call a cell phone (using skype)! What the hell!?
