I for one am glad I carry my cell phone, most of the the time two, around all the time. It is good for my own safety and security. You can carry one and not use it unless you absolutely have to. It has wonderful tools also that are in addition to the phone feature, such as a camera, clock, calculater, map, and flashlight. I wouldn't want to go anywhere without my phone, even if I don't touch it I am glad I have it just in case of emergency.

I am for technology, I'm using it right now. I use GoToMyPC.com almost everyday to check in on my remote companies.
All I'm trying to say is when I stop at my local coffee shop in the morning. 99% of the people there have a glow on their faces, and its not from a natural excitement. Its from the cell phones they have perched up to their faces. Instead why not look around, enjoy the music being played. Check out the people ordering their coffee and wonder what they do for a living. Heck watch the baristas hard work they do just to make that soy decaf latte with 2 honeys so perfect for you.
Seems like everyone has forgot what we all enjoyed so much just 15 years ago. Its called life and its passing us by while we all have our faces buried in our cell phones.
