“April 3, 1973 (40 years ago today): The first cell phone call was made on a prototype of what would become the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x (http://qz.com/70309/the-first-mobile-phone-call-was-made-40-years-ago-today/), by Martin Cooper. Fast forward to April 3, 2013: Our recent surveys show that 87% of American adults have a cell phone, along with 78% of American teenagers ages 12 to 17. 44% of adult cell owners have slept with their phone next to their bed; 67% find themselves checking their phone for messages, alerts, or calls even when they dont notice it ringing or vibrating; and 29% describe their cell phone as something they cant imagine living without. In short: The U.S. has gone mobile.”
