Ten Things Mobile Phones Will Make Obsolete

November 21st, 2009 11:02 admin

An anonymous reader writes “recombu.com has an article examining ten things mobile phones will make obsolete, including phone booths, wristwatches and handheld games consoles. It’s interesting to see how many devices have been absorbed into mobile phone technology, and it raises the question: are we better off having everything in one device? The author poignantly concludes that while it’s great to have so much power at our fingertips, it does mean that some of us will rely on mobile phones for even basic mental tasks, which is great until the battery runs out.” See also Isaac Asimov’s The Feeling of Power.
