People got along just fine without them 20 years ago. Yet now you can't leave home without one!? Also, cellphones make things /too/ convenient. Makes people lazy.
I've heard this argument several times, and again recently. Ya, no one needs a cellphone, we use to get along fine without them. This definition of "need" also applies to:
2. The internet
9. Running water
Just because we /used/ to get along fine without technology X doesn't mean we don't "need" it now. Though we're not as dependant on cellphones as we are on electricity (yet) I would argue that we still need them (unless you define need as something you will actually die without, in which case, whatever). So please, spare everyone the i'm-superior-cause-i-didn't-use-to-have-a-cellphone argument next time.
