Calling you

 on 

Every person I have tried to photograph today was busy on their mobile phone. Isn’t it strange that a generation ago a mobile phone was a sci-fi fantasy and now it is such a commonly used everyday item.

The rapidly advancing smart phones are also changing the the telecommunication device into a portable business, entertainment and information hub. Phones such as iPhone, Android and BlackBerry are still on an expensive side but I am sure the competition will bring these price down fairly soon.

    Nice shot. I notice too that everywhere I go people are talking on their phones. Have to wonder what is so important that people have to be talking all the time, even in the grocery stores and public rest rooms (ick). One of my recent trips was to a location w/ no cell service. It was so nice to have peace and quiet and not be subjected to listening to everyone’s phone conversations all the time. While I see the benefit of a cell phone i.e. emergencies, they are one technology that I wish had not been created due to their tendency to make rude people even more rude. Not to mention how dangerous it is due to drivers talking on their cell phones and not paying attention to the road.
