Mobile phones ‘eroding landlines’

Mobile phones ‘eroding landlines’: “Meanwhile demand for gadgets such as Blackberrys and other PDAs – as well as users being lured to a new network by competitive tariffs – increased mobile phone subscriptions.”

It’s clear mobile is our new technology and the way to go. We don’t use record players, we don’t crank up our cars in the morning, we don’t have steam trains , a lot of people don’t actually use a pen for writing any more and quite a few people do without watches. The world is changing and yet it is reported as though it were an oddity. In time we won’t have wires for anything and it will be so liberating. It might bring its own problems but we’ll deal with them as they arise, but we shall eventually be wireless and we’ll wonder how we ever managed with wires!
