Just saw Steve's posting about Mobile Phone Usage citing that:

  • 95% of cell phone owners never leave home without carrying their phone
  • 3 billion people are always 'connected', twice the number of connected PCs
  • 54% of 14-24 year olds use their cell phone for Internet access
  • Only 24% of Japanese cell phone traffic is voice.

The scariest one is that 91% of mobile users keep phone within 1 meter reach 24x7 (China Mobile 50K survey)

It made me smile as when my wife and I had antenatal classes the Midwife said to me 'and make sure that you have a fully charged mobile phone ready at all times'

My wife just burst into laughter :)
