Other then the elderly, I'm probably the only person who does not own a cellphone on this planet.

when it crashes or BSODs, will it take the user's brain down with it?


Absolutely!... The whole thing is a plot by those of us who don't like texters. It is a device to permanently crash the brain of texters. Collect their bodies, place them into refrigerated pods and, dole out the organs as needed to those who have never texted. :-)

Edit: since the brain wasn't exactly "prime material", it was deemed disposable.

The only reason I even have a cell phone is for emergencies or to send a quick text that I'm on the way. I've nearly been hit crossing the street because someone was on a cell and not paying attention, I could live without one very easily, but I have several friends who carry their cellphones around everywhere and rarely put it down. The funniest thing I've seen is a guy walking into a parking meter while texting, shook it off then went back to his texting.
I was in a coffee shop and there are these two girls, I'm guessing friends, but they actually weren't talking or even looking at each other, they both had their cellphones texting away, you wonder how this will effect society in the future and if we will lose the ablility to socialize with others.

Actually, James Tiberius Kirk (Jim) is the Captain and Leonard "Bones" McKoy is the doctor. Bones was always asked to do things outside of being a doctor.

"Damn it Jim! I'm a doctor, not a texter!"

Imagine a new version of Star Trek where they primarily communicate through texting, Galaxy Facebook, etc...Let's friend some Klingons and Romulans. Boring!

I have my cell phone only for emergencies. I will not text. I have my house phone that I use for basic things.

There would only be one episode... instead of going where no man has gone before, they would collide with the first planet in the way because they'll all be texting... "rvrs crs"... "wht"... "RVRS CRS"... "SHT"... . Darwin saves the day!

Who needs texting when you can touch your communicator and talk to anyone on the planet for free? They didn't charge long distance in Start Trek, that would be great.
At least if we had phasers we could fry people's cells outta their hands....

A) The moment I get in my car, my Cell Phone sits on the passenger seat, and doesn't get touched until I get home.. no matter how many beeps or flashing lights it gives off. Partly because it's illegal to talk/text while driving in PA, and partly because I don't want to be the one that wrecks into a family in a minivan, or some poor soul crossing the road - just so I can check my latest text messages.

So I agree that there are certainly times when a cell phone should be untouched. Including dinner with family or friends, movies, funerals, weddings, meetings at work, dates, etc etc. And there are certainly folks out there who can't even handle not using their phone for that long - which is sad.

B) Texting and Emailing are a great way to filter through the crazies, when it comes to online dating. I would never meet somebody without some online communication first. Even texting is a big step - because at that point, the person has your number. I've had to change my number in the past due to giving it to a loon from an online dating site. So I fully support a brief period of digital communication before meeting up. If you don't, then by that logic you also should not screen your phone calls, try clothes on before you buy them, or take a new car for a test drive.

C) With all that being said - it's 2012. It's technology. I love it, I am admittedly a gadget geek. My entire career evolves around technology growing and expanding. If you don't like it, there are some folks in Lancaster, PA that would be more than happy to welcome you into their family, where you can trade in your car for a horse and buggy, and your cell phone for a bonnet and butter churn.

I think it will be so great when technology advances to a point where the device will do the texting for us. This way, I will be free to actually participate in my sport, or activity, or SOCIAL interaction.
Kind O like furbies, the devices will just txt jibberish to each other continuously once within proximity.

Guess I will be SOL for a long time then. I love technology but I still do not and will not have internet or texting on my phone. You need to get a hold of me, call! Pet peeve of mine, (take a look sometime) walk into a restaurant and right off the bat look at how many people are sitting with other PEOPLE and they are staring into their laps at those damn phones. Couples...groups of friends....kids with their parents.....My personal opinion...It is very SAD that we choose to text instead of REALLY communicate through spoken words, with all of their little nuances and inflections.... True communication if you ask me!

I'm not sure how that would work, but SOMETHING needs to happen. I walked into a New Year's Eve party two years ago, and I would estimate there was 100 people packed in the house, yet it was "could hear a pin drop" silent due to everyone sitting around, fiddling with their cellphones.

That's pretty damn bad.

Yup. In response to the guywho said his entire career evolved around technology, that's fine. I'm a fan of technology, and it's only going to get better as time goes by. I WANT to be able to drive my flying Delorean in the sky before I die, and transport from here to China in 25 seconds by Mr.Scott
The problem is responsable usage by the human element. Anything is cool, but too much of anything becomes uncool real quick. Like the girl who won't shut up at parties, or the guy who can only talk about his sports car. The one who can't live without his cellphone and doesnt know how to do anything else than say "oh wait, I'll text you...."; that's my beef. And there's more and more of those, sadly.
I studied computer sciences, so I'm no stranger to technology myself. The invention of the cellular phone is a dangerous invention when left unchecked with certain people withing the population. I'm thinking especially of young kids who communicate with ONLY that. And I'm talking kindergarden texting here....I've seen it. I DONT understand it. Kid barely can talk, yet she texts...............

My greatest hope is that people finally realize how stupid all this "tech" nonsense is and how stupid we're getting as a society because of it (and how they are willfully giving up their privacy.) My phone sits on my dresser. I walk by on occasion to see if the mssg light is flashing. I suppose people think I take eons to respond, but I have no desire to be attached to the thing day and night. (Nor have it riding shotgun in my jeans next to the family jewels.) I also have a POS pay as you go phone because I refuse to do these insane cell phone contracts. The "legalese" we are subjecting ourselves too is boggling. All this fine print so we can "change our FB status on the go." Riiiiight..... when I start to bleat like a sheep.....

LOL. And cellphones companies are really abusing it. Their prices arent fix, andsince no laws were written (yet?) in order to limit their activities, so it's pretty much a free for all. You can have a phone contract that costs say 75 a month, or a yearly contract for 300 or 400, and by giving companies runaround (I went to this guy, he's offering me this much, blah blah blah) you can end up with a yearly contract for 100, or something like 10 bucks a month.
Did that myself, when my kid was young and you couldnt text on cellphones, I gave them the run around. Which, theoratically on their part, is illegal, because their prices are "supposedly fixed" by the office of governement competitivity, whatever its called. But its not. So you can negociate like the good old days and save cash and make a fortune.....

I used to lease my 10 bucks a month contract to a girl I knew for 25 a month, which was 25 LESS than she was already paying for her own cell with the SAME company for the SAME advantages....ironic no?

I think we have become less and less social and interacting with people in person. My daughter and grandchild only talk via texting these days. Every once in awhile I call them just to make sure I that I can hear their voices.

It is okay to text short messages here and there, but seems guys do all their communications via text. Even asking you out for a date. It is simply a way to keep detached I think.

I wrote a poem not too long ago titled. Love Letters. I have a bunch of them from when we did not have cell phones and when I was younger. I cherish the pages of thoughts and feelings they expressed in them.

It is like if we no longer could listen to music just see the notes and words on paper, it just isn't the same.

Just tonight it happened again. Me and some friends pick up my care and decide to go get something to eat. They can't decide so I just say to follow me and I'll pick something.

So I find a good place open. I pull up. And there's no one following me. They decided they wanted something else while driving. The sad part is they couldn't even pick up the damned phone to let me know they'd changed their minds. They texted instead. So it was a couple of minutes later, as I'm calling them to find out where the hell they are, that the text comes in. Seriously stupid. So now I'm by myself at home instead of out with friends because I'm sure I'd throw random condiments at them right now.

It's a 'break dealer' for me (the hot!!! thread's newly invented word) I can't stand these Iphone finger sticking/glass smearing creatures.

Talk to me as a woman, as a person. If you reach for the phone -- go away.
