  1. It makes your life more complicated
  2. It’s horribly expensive
  3. It enslaves you to a one-sided contract
  4. It makes you perpetually available
  5. It is boring
  6. It must constantly be recharged
  7. It knows where you are
  8. It encourages stupid people to become a public menace
  9. Ubiquitous pleather accessory shops
  10. It turns you into a public annoyance

  1. Yeah, but it lets you read your favorite blogs while sitting on the toilet, and it doesn’t get as hot as a laptop while so doing. That alone outweighs all the other stuff.

  2. My only comment is on the expensive part. Right now the only phone contact I have is a cell phone because I’m paying $10 /month as part of a family plan. I realize most normal cell phone services cost 40-50$. But anyway, right now I don’t have a land-line phone because it costs 20$ month just to have the stupid phone with no extra bells and whistles. To me *that’s* expensive!
