Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

But these days a phone very rarely is.

I was sitting in Starbucks sipping a double cinnamon latte with whipped cream (something I don't often do, but I was in a silly mood) using my phone to connect to their WiFi hotspot to check my email and browsing the web to get the latest weather reports and then play a quick game of Su Doku.

It occurred to me that the one thing I hardly ever did with my phone these days was make a call!

It's become so much more than just a way to annoy people in restaurants!
