What does Internet have that Teletext doesn't?
I had to google teletext. I have never heard of it.
So, what does teletext have that internet doesnt?
It has a lot less pixels, that's what it got
Carla - I had to go look it up. This is what i found, right or wrong I don't know. Too bad original poster hadn't explained eh?
Teletext (or broadcast teletext) is a television information retrieval service created in the United Kingdom in the early 1970
Thanks lorraine, i looked it too, but got no answer to why it is better
Or, if you live in America, Electra. I wouldn't be surprised if it ever made a comeback!
We used the teletext quite often on TV, but it disappeared from many channels.
Here's some info:
I remember this as something we used in my childhood.
I almost completely forgot that it existed, and didn't use it for years until I saw a headline about it being removed from one of our mayor TV channels.
It made me go and have a look.
In some way it was like a Flintstone's Internet.
It had news, weather forecasts, games, you could buy and sell, there was dating services, ads and more.
Did we really need Internet at all?
Well, I am also missing the teletext in several of the popular channels from our neighbours (our own main channels have them, with the TV programmes, short news, etc. - for TV, it is fine); but Internet has much more to offer, for professional, technical specifications, and also for leisure.
But - like with every technological invention and/or improvement, there will be also abusers, trolls, propagandists and fraudsters, trying to mess up everything. And we get enough bad news in real life ...
That is true.
I don't recall any trolls, fools or narr on Teletext, at least
Lol, if it was on TV (with old-fashioned systems), you could not intervene directly (except for paging) without a special remote device or equipment - but that was some time ago.
And I suppose that the dubious activities on teletext were advertisements with expensive telephone call numbers.
Hello, HegeMarie - how are you doing?
I missed your sunny presence.
Doing fine, how have you been?
This is the busiest time of year, but this day is off because of Ascension. Do you have that in Switzerland?
It seems they don't in the US, at least not in all states.
I missed you too, and I miss the sun's sunny present as well. We have fog and rain right now
Thank you, HegeMarie - it was a busy time too, here. We are, of course, celebrating Ascension Day officially.
We had also a very capricious weather, mostly clouded, partly rainy, but still not enough to compensate for the dry years - and snow in late April. Temperatures went up and down. Yesterday was rather sunny and mild, and today will be bright and hot.
That is good to hear. All in all, our May have been warm and sunny too, only a few days of rain.
Today we have 19 degrees!
Gonna bring a good book and go out and enjoy this
Whether or not Ascension Day is going to be a workday or not have been under discussion in Norway. That is why I asked. I know that it isn't in many countries. Wasn't sure about Switzerland
Our neighbours have quite a few official holidays, which we don't have or which are only celebrated in some cantons. Ascension Day is an official holiday since long. But May 1st, for instance, is not an official holiday, except for a few cantons.
By the way, the temperatures reached around 27 °C today.
We had a rather cool period, but not enough rainfall, and we had exceptionally late snow this year.

Oh you found the same link, I just posted the same thing. Isn't it sad - original poster was too lazy to include a link so we could understand?people expect us to know about things in another country,
I didn't mean to confuse you, and I didn't mean to annoy you.
It's just.. I don't know how not to.
Of course I don't expect you to know about things in OTHER countries. I mean, who does?
My sincerest apologies.
Should you because of this withold your charming, insightful and witty remarks on any future post of mine, and rather choose to spread your sunshine elsewhere; know that it will be understood.
My loss entirely
Tip: if you want to learn more about something, just ask next time. Don't be passive-aggressive and start trouble. You can help it.
teletext? What is that?
Sadly nothing lasts forever
It had it's run
Strange...i've never heard of it but i guess anything is possible..
Haha, that dog
