    I just wanted to take a few minutes here and point out some things that I think we should all remember.

    How truly cool is it that these things exist at all? I sell phones everyday. There are plenty of other things that I have to do at my job, but selling phones is what really gets me going. IMO, there is no cooler product in the world of consumer electronics than wireless phones. (Although I'm sure there could be arguements to that statement!)

    When a customer comes in and wants a phone I light up. Not just because of the possiblity for $$, but because I really think it's just...COOL!

    Last night I was following some threads from my deck on my Treo! This afternoon I talked to a friend from high school that lives in Nevada now. I'd never keep up with him if I didn't have my free long distance.

    When I drive my hour commute home I talk to friends about the things we enjoy and might not have time to talk about because of work, and kids, and all the other things that require my time as I get older.

    The point is, you guys all know the ins and outs of these things, and are truly passionate about them, but maybe once in awhile we should step back and think about how much ingenuity we take for granted.

    I'm reminded of one of my favorite quotes-
    "Sometimes, I think about what vikings would think of us. I think they'd look around at all the glow in the dark stuff we have, and be amazed how we take it for granted." Jack Handey
    Go here if you're tired of being .
    It'll be fun.

    Funny, I was thinking about the same thing last week..

    For the oldtimers here, remember the time before mobile phones?

    Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

    Two effects of cellphones I see:

    Location is no longer important. Free long distance has made calling someone on the other side of the country routine. No more "he's calling long distance."

    Phone calls are now to people. Before they were to places.

    I hear you! The only time I get to catch up with friends and extended family is on my commute to and from work. I have to say it's a sad thing that so much of our time is filled with our jobs, taking care of our kids, spouses, homes, yards, cars etc., that we don't have time for ourselves.

    However, we should never complain about having the above the above "problems"; as long as I have a job, my beautiful wife and kids, a home, grass to cut, and a vehicle to get me around, I will consider myself very lucky.

    Those are things we should also remember!
