Here's a question: Does anyone use landline phones anymore?
Well, this is timely. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report Tuesday that says, yes, people still use landline phones. There's just not that many.
About 21,000 households were surveyed, and not even half of them were cellphone-only homes. Forty-one percent use both landline and cellphone; 8 percent use just a landline; and 3.4 percent don't have a phone at all.
