Arlo & Janis (8/31/10)

Five years ago, I didn’t have a cell phone. Three years ago, my cell phone could only be counted on to make phone calls and send text messages. Today, my cell phone can be used to check e-mail, surf the web, maintain a calendar, listen to music, watch movies, play video games, forecast the weather, and calculate directions. Not too long ago, I would have seen these features as luxuries. Today, I see them as virtual necessities. At the very least, they make things easier for me. So when my phone started acting up last weekend I became concerned. For a moment I glimpsed an awful future in which I might be forced to…I don’t know…read books or something.
