Beside the fact that people yakking on phones while driving show the same mental capability of someone who's drunk, the authorities still let people talk on phones. Every day I see people shoot red lights, stop signs, etc. while yakking blithely on phones.
But the latest story is a no-brainer. Cell phones breed germs. Who hasn't seen someone place a cellphone down on a counter in the bathroom at work (or worse, heard someone talking in the stall on the cell phone, I mean, REALLY, can't these people stop yakkng for ANYthing??). But studies show that germs love cellphones. No different than the average phone. I see people at work sneeze into phones all the time, and if they borrow mine, I clean it with alcohol. Who needs that gross stuff?
I'm sure iPODS are just as bad if not worse ;)
