A mysterious appearance of an old lady in a classic Charlie Chaplinmovie has made international headlines in the last days. Irish flimmaker George Clarke kicked of this meme by posting a segment of the movie The Circus on Youtube that shows an old women holding something to her ear while she talking. You can watch the video below (over 3 million views). It really looks like the women is using a cellphone and the time traveler mystery was born. Of course this is a totally illogical explanation, but it caught on. Maybe because it is Halloween season people like mystery stories. Now the mystery has been solved though. The device the lady is using is most likely an early Siemens hearing aid.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
