I'll admit it, cell phones are useful

I used to question the reason that anyone would want a cell phone. I once watched a woman attempt to make a right turn in her car while grasping the silly thing. She overcompensated and drove off the road. It never occurred to her to put it down and grab the wheel with both hands.

Amazon is aggregating a group of phones and service contracts in a single area. Here is the link:
