My girlfriend and I agree! A few sites to blame are http://a1r.mo bi (for guys) and http://a1r.mo bi/me (for gals). Sites like these create compulsive behavior, since they have mobile links to Google, topical newsfeeds, live chat, forums, and way too much to be healthy. I spend at least an hour a day on a1r.mobi just reading mobile Digg, and news. She spends more time than me on a1r.mobi/me on mobile MySpace and chick stuff. Plus, since sites like this work on regular cell phones, teens are especially vulnerable to becoming addicted.

Mobile trend and technology breakthrough are swiftly advancing nowadays, and I would agree that it helps the lives of modern people with respect to our modern lifestyle. But, somehow much of these technologies are radiating elements of devastation. Advancement in cellular phones perhaps allows for pornography to know no-age-limit, condition like this happen in my locality. It is because some of the minors are aleady owning mobiles that allows for wireless transfer of data, like bluetooth and infrared, thus, explicit materials like pornographic videos can easily be dessiminated by concupiscene individuals. I hope that cell phone companies are aware of the detrimental effects of their products to the culture and lifes of other people.

It's up naman to the cell phone users noh!
But...I have a theory, that the earlier the users are engage in cell phones, the less he/she becomes a txt addict..or vice versa!
As days pass by kasi, mas nagiging less ang hilig ng use sa "texting"!
