I think it is silly to hate cellphones. I have had one since 1995 and 
find it hard to imagine life without one. In fact, my cellphone number 
is the only number I ever give out to people. The realities of today's 
business world is that you are expected to be reachable when you are not 
in the office. Like it or not, that is the way it is. It is true that it 
is annoying when you come across stupid people who forget to turn them 
off in theaters etc., but there is a technological solution to that, 
which some cinemas have implemented, namely to block the signal inside 
the auditorium.

And let us also not forget the bigger global picture: in many poor 
countries, the cellphone has made it possible for even outlying villages 
to be connected to the outside world, something that would never have 
happened if the telephone company had to lay cable to connect such places.
