Evil mega-corp Verizon has thrown in the towel… at least when it comes to delivering phone book in New York City.
…The New York State Public Service Commission granted Verizon and its publisher permission to stop printing and delivering business telephone books in the state. Verizon says that it will only deliver business or residential directories to customers who request a printed copy. Last year, the company delivered 6.3 million business directories.
The literal paperweight is rarely used by anybody except maybe this guy, so it’s a step in the right direction for a company that usually steps the opposite way.
