Die, Cell Phone, Die!

I'm not a particularly big John Dvorak devotee....but occasionally he belts out a rant worthy of a good chuckle or two. His latest culprit? The mobile phone!

These devices have done nothing to improve the quality of life or the national productivity. If anything, they have done the opposite. Yes, they are great in an emergency and useful for finding someone in a crowd or for getting directions when you are poorly prepared and lost. But that's about it. Instead, they are used for needless chatter and to give the illusion that you are some sort of big shot as you bellow demands into your device while in a public place.

Personally, I hope none of the handset makers ever turn a profit and they all go dead broke. I feel the same way about the miserable carriers and service providers who are all one inch short of being out-and-out rip-off artists.

The bigger question is: How did we ever let this happen?

I admit that they do come in handy....but there are times where I wish I didn't have to rely on one so much.
