Cell Phone Communication Anxiety Addiction Shrink

Was playing with BSNL CellOne value-added-service portal today when I realized I am being taken for a ride. For every request like News, I would get an SMS with a load of bull and bill of 2 bucks. Am sure GPRS and 3G data downloads are making people pay through their noses. Telecoms all over the world are ripping us all off. Oh, we already knew that didn’t we? Recently, reports found that text messages cost carriers close to zero, and the huge bills from cell phone data plans and roaming fees surprised no more than a few people. Can we blame the corporates? No. It is we who are afflicted with communication anxiety. Honestly, do we need to call home to say, “Honey, am stuck in traffic. Will gonna be late for dinner. Love you.” I don’t think so no matter how much we are in love (or in fear). The less said about paying wads of cash for outdated silly data on mobiles, the better. So, here is a nice dark graphic novel‘ish one reflecting this mood by Angelo Boligan of Mexico…

Hat tip to Wired, “Our 12 (Or So) Favourite Techie Cartoons of 2008”. Worth a look.
