Yellow Pages, do you still use it ?

Not really, I think the last edition we ever got to be delivered to our house was either the '09 or '10 edition (need to check), other than that, it sits in a corner in our drawing room gathering dust next to the also disused Thomson Local and BT phone book

Really !!! Why not the net ? :)
Easier to just grab the book than turning on the pc. Even if the pc had been on I'd still use the book, something I've always done.

Don't have Yellow Pages here, just a directory issued by the local Telecoms company which has business and residential numbers in it.

Use it all the time, mainly because a lot of small businesses here aren't on the net. Also, the directory is in two halves, one in conventional alphabetical order, the other in number order. So if someone calls and you miss it, you can easily look up their number to see who it is. Googling rarely gives that info!
