How Cell Phones are Changing the World

Think back to when you were a kid and the only thing you knew about your landline phone was how to dial the handful of numbers you had memorized and needed only on certain occasions. Now a days it is considered a taboo to not own a cell phone and a crisis if you do not have it on you. Instead of simply memorizing a few numbers you now have hundreds of them stored in your phone. To add to that some phones play music, take pictures, and even gain access to the internet. The modern day cell phone has more memory and far more advanced technology than a computer from the 90's. This is a blessing in most regards but is it possible we are becoming too dependent on our cell phones? How did we manage before these mobile sources of wonder exist?
