Cell Phones

You walk down the sidewalk now and you see at least every 5th person doing the now popular walk-and-talk thing. If you get close enough to them to hear the conversation, it is usually about some inane topic such as, "Honey, I'll be home late." It's interesting how so many people have these things grafted to their ears. As popular as they have become, the person still looks like a pretentious prick.

I guess I shouldn't complain since I had one grafted to my ear as well during the heyday of dotcomdom. Late for this plane, change hotel reservations, cancel million dollar orders, re-instate those same orders 5 minutes later, return 50 daily phone mails. The list goes one.

With that era over, maybe people are having real conversations and I am just missing it. Maybe because I am only semi-employed and I have cancelled my mobile phone to save money that I am not understanding of the "m-life" lifestyle that ATT has so forcefully crammed down our throats. Mindless services that no ones need.

Well, I'm sure that when I get back into the swing of things full time, I will also be a religious member of the "m-life" generation.

All a matter of perspective I guess.
