Cellphones have gotten out of hand. Seriously. Or maybe it is just that I am a neo-Luddite: a technologically adept disparager of things technological.

I don't give one rat's ass about texting, web surfing, games, cameras (evil!!!), or playing MP3s. What I want is a phone with a phonebook, voicemail, clock, and calendar.

I'm not the only one.

I am sure many of us would like just the cell phone. No gadgets.

What! No gadgets!?! Read this extract from an article on the $100 laptop:
[...] Think about your own PC usage -- does it honestly include anything more demanding than Facebook stalking, laughing at idiots on YouTube or hitting the digg button underneath the latest lolcat? Can you justify spending £2,000 when a machine costing £50 will do exactly the same thing? Crave thinks the world can learn a lot from the XO, the ClassMate PC and its ilk.[...]


So how about de-featuring my cellphone and increasing its battery life? I don't need to run a spreadsheet, but I do need longer battery life.

And here I am, thinking about upgrading my phone to a fancy bells-and-whistles model, just because I'm sick of carrying around my phone, my iPod *and* my datebook. Consolidation!
