Wireless Usage Mores Changing

The third annual survey from LetsTalk indicates that the way Americans use and accept the use of cellphones is changing. Apparently, we’re more likely this year to accept a conversation in the restroom, but less likely to tolerate wireless chatter in a movie house. Techdirt expects the etiquette associated with cellphone use to evolve over the years, especially in the early years (which we still are in!). Of course, the current study has no mention of Push-To-Talk, but we imagine the use of that service, which often employs a squawking speakerphone, will have to find its own set of acceptable use mores. Our last word: “Don’t irritate, vibrate.”
