    I had a bag phone, and then a brick phone, and then several different flip-phones, and now a stick phone. I was actually in the telephone business when the cellular system was being field tested in Chicago, and knew some of the people involved. So, I am not ignorant about cell phones, but I am unable to understand the addiction that many people have to them. Apparently, the most addicted are the Apple crowd.

    Accomplishment has largely been replaced in modern society with conspicuous ownership as a source of self esteem. :(

    Same reason geeks used to stand in line for the Star Trek movies. Apple lovers worship at the altar of Steve Jobs....
