25th anniversary...

Motorola introduced the first cell phone 25 years ago today. I think I'd be hard pressed to say if the computer or the cell phone has had the biggest effect on civilization. The cell phone may be more prevalent and has a more immediate effect. Maybe sometime down the road history books will compare it the Gutenberg printing press for how much it changed the world.

My first phone? a Motorola bag phone -

The phone I have now?
