The future of cell phones?

I had a really weird dream last night.
Everyone I knew was getting the brand new super-hyped cell phone. It was all the media was talking about. I felt I had to switch just because everyone else was. Everyone had this phone and said it was the greatest thing ever. But at no point did I actually see one. I never saw anyone using one, never saw an actual picture, nothing.

So I bought one. It had to be activated before I opened the box, I would have to switch carriers and port my number over (something I just did in real life), so there would be no going back (easily at least).

I bit the bullet, opened the box, and inside was a whoopee-cushion with an ancient Nokia candybar phone inside it.

And then I noticed all the people walking around with whoopee-cushions held up to their heads.

    That's awesome. I thought it was gong to be some kind of implant and that's why you never saw it. But then it turned out to be a government ploy to track and monitor everyone. Even though, that s already happening with regular phones…

    @spudart – Don't you mean "3GaS"?

    @cactus joe – Right? Everyone without a whoopee-cushion to their head is a non-conformist.
    I think the whoopee-cushion was chosen in the dream to evoke fear. Even though it was the social norm, *I* would know how stupid it was, and would have to live with constant disapproval – from myself.
    An implant is cool technology, and I think in the dream I would have been like "fuck yeah! chip me!"
