Description
 
Although the Internet takes us everywhere in cyberspace, it usually requires us to be seated behind a desk. In contrast, the cellphone lets us walk through the world fully connected. This book explores the history of mobility in media -- from books to cameras to transistor radios to laptops -- & examines the unique impact of a device that sits in a pocket or palm & lets us talk by voice or text. The device that allows us to call anytime, anywhere allows us to be called anytime, anywhere. The book considers how this new dual edge of accessibility transforms restaurants, public transport, cars, romance, literacy, war, parent-child relationships, & indeed all walks of life, trivial & profound. “The cellphone has become a complex sparkplug of human life.” Illus.
