      A typical example of a news filler.

      If it's not a story about "carrots are good for you" or "X causes cancer", it's "phones are popular".

    Interesting. I have more reason than most to sleep with them at my bedside, but they are almost always about 30+ feet away from where I sleep. I use them as alarmclocks, and they are usually charging. One feature that I miss from the blackberry, though the android hopefully has it, is the built in alarmclock for ITSELF. You see, when I slept, my blackberry did ALSO. It woke up just as it had to wake me up. That likely turned off GPS, and it did save the battery, and my sanity.

    Like a phantom limb? More see it as a tether! People often NEED cell phones because people EXPECT them to always be available.
