* Creator/DamonKnight's novella ''[[https://books.google.com/books?id=nZl0CwAAQBAJ&lpg=PT8&dq=Damon%20Knight%20The%20Dying%20Man&pg=PT9#v=snippet&q=noon&f=false Dio/The Dying Man]]'' takes place in a far-off almost-utopian future. We have videophones, still called phones. They appear to be stand-alone consoles with built-in light-up phonebooks where you choose the sector, group and name of the person you're calling. Operators have been replaced by robots called autosecs. Because most people move around a lot, frequent updates of your registration are important.
