A small communication device that is very useful to the owner if it used right.

However, many people abuse this fact and multitask when they're driving and if they're doing work that requires monotasking.
An example of this? Just watch somebody driving and about 78% of the time you'll see someone blabbering away on a cell phone.

A device for communicating with others needlessly. Day in. Day out. Whenever. Wherever. Good for holding up lines in stores, traffic, etc. Also the latest technology found in ghettos-overtaking the more common "boom box".
Typical cell phone conversation: Hey, where you at? I'm over here. Oh. What? I dunno. I'll be there in 5 seconds....oh wait I can see you! Hey! Whats up? Wait...let me call you back. Why? Huh? Can you here me? Guess what? My phone bill was only $90 this month. Etc.....

back when their primary use was calling, it was like torture to go anywhere because every 5 seconds a random phone would ring. now that people use their cell phones mostly for texting and web browsing, life is better, though it's still slightly annoying to see everyone looking down at their phones.
