The Far-Reaching Effects of the Cell Phone

       On the first day of the release of the iPhone 5, my wife and I happened to park near a Verizon Wireless store.  As we backed out of our space, we saw a customer exiting the store, clutching his new phone (in a bag) closely, a bounce in his step and a smile on his face.  This guy was psyched!  And that’s really part of the effect that cell phones have had on our lives. 

       But the impact goes deeper than that.  I rememeber the day when pay phones were on each city corner and in many stores, and airports and conference centers were packed with them. 

       Even that’s changed, as this photo I took at San Francisco airport shows.  Empty booths, no phones.  What’s next?  Who knows?,,,

    last night at the Yankee game they called to the bullpen for a new pitcher and the announcer said, “Why don’t they just text them – it would be easier. Dugout phones next to go?
