My husband, his best friend, and I were out to lunch the other day when his friend pulled out his new Visor (a Palm-based PDA) with the Cingular-based cellphone attachment. We were discussing the limitations of the phone, namely that it can send instant messages to Cingular and Verizon cellphones, but not Internet-based email. He was attempting to demonstrate using my Verizon phone as the recipient.
“Ok, so what’s your cell number? ”
he asked eagerly. After he tapped in the number and started composing a message, I realized something.
“You know, we’re sitting less than four feet away from each other.. . . ”
“Yeah, ” my husband piped in.
“You could just talk to each other. ”
“No, no, no, ” I replied, opening my purse and taking out my Palm pilot.
“I meant you could just beam it to me! ”
