Cellphones and Real-World Communication
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v70 n3 p36-39 Nov 2004
In this article, the author shares his views on cellphones and real-world communication. He claims that the cellphone has changed society more than the home computer, which it has assimilated. Cellphones sound during worship, wakes, births, graduations, hearings, trials, and accreditation meetings--interrupting life-changing spiritual or secular proceedings, with most people present showing only mild annoyance.
