I&#39;m all for a phone booth with a closing door to take private phone<br>
calls in peace.  Google has one in their lobby in Mountain View (we saw<br>
it on our fieldtrip there the other day), complete with a &quot;Google Voice&quot;<br>
label on it.  Theirs is red, though, so technically it can&#39;t be a tardis<br>
(which, by definition, must be blue).  It looks exactly like this:<br>

<br>
If we got the booth itself, we already have payphones, and could wire it<br>
with video chat and free voice-over-ip.<br>

Hmm...<br>
