…just what are we going to do with you?

Smartphones, the gig is up. You could only get away with it for so long. Parading around as though you even remotely resembled the “telephone” of yesteryear.

Finally someone has the sense to stand up and denounce you for what you are not. Your accuser?

The cell phone service provider. So maybe they didn’t say it in so many words, but how else can you explain the industry-wide shift towards charging through the nose for data and giving away minutes and texting for practically nothing?

Whatever happened to the good old-fashioned phone call? Why does everything have to be e-mail and Tweets? Wouldn’t you just love to get a text every once in a while?

Chat it up people. Show those phone companies that you remember the original function of that multi-talented device parading as a “telephone” was intended for. They probably won’t thank you for it.
