I don't know that I want to go too strong with the idea. Most everyone I know has a cell, and they have proven useful on more than one occasion. Still, there's something that bothers me about the way that they are used by some people, and the way that this campaign is marketing them. "Get more from life" is the same pitch they used to sell dishwashers to housewives in the 1950's. The main difference I see is one of productivity v. leisure. Then it meant you could get more done. Now it means you have a toy that can fill up the empty space.

Re:

i've never owned one, i don't even like to answer the phone (computers take that place for me). cellphones affect me nonetheless when people i'm with drop everything to the call of thier 'master' phone. i see people using it to fill thier addiction to being in constant connection with others, being available at every moment to discuss the amount of katsup on thier burger. this of course applies only to people they already know. and i get funny looks when talking to strangers on the bus.
