Quotations

Apparently we love our own cell phones but we hate everyone else's.

(Joe Bob Briggs)


The cell phone has become the adult's transitional object[3], replacing the toddler's teddy bear for comfort and a sense of belonging.

(Margaret Heffernan)


When these things first appeared, they were so cool. Only when it was too late did people realize they are as cool as electronic tags on remand prisoners.

(David Mitchell, Ghostwritten)

Notes

  1. A disrespectful term used to describe the eerie blue lighting up of your face by your phone in dark places.
  2. I am a giant proponent of giant screens. But I accept the fact that most of my movies are going to be seen on phones. (George Lucas)
  3. A psychobabble expression used to refer to an object used by children as a substitute for a parent - who isn't there when needed - to help him or her (the child that is) cope with separation. Blankets and soft, cuddly toys are typical examples of transitional objects.
