    The truth is I use my mobile phone as ‘phone’ about 0.5% of the time and indeed it is always on silent mode with the vibrator switched off. The other 99.5% of the time it’s my still/video camera, GPS, coffee card, diary, email client, messenger, internet browser, book library, gadget manual, shopping list, hotel finder, boarding pass etc etc etc…

    Obsessed might be a strong word – I prefer to think of it as a portable conduit to the information I require at a given moment in time.

    At the same time, I’ve never owned a pair of touchscreen-friendly gloves :)

    I’m one of those who simply won’t have a cell phone. Had one for a while. But, it was more like a ball and chain…lol

        Oh, it wasn’t just that, though certainly a factor. It was just annoying to have to remember to carry it. I actually still have my iPhone. I just have it linked to WiFi off the modem in the house to check email and stuff when I’m out in the yard or sitting on the back deck. Also use it to listen to internet broadcasts, etc. Hooked into my 20 year old stereo makes internet radio stations sound like they’re right across town.
