There is a growing trend for people to give up their traditional landline telephone and use their cell phones exclusively. I have considered giving up our landline in favor of the cell only but have resisted for a couple of reasons. Primarily because our cell phone reception isn't the strongest in our house. Second, we currently have our landline bundled with our internet and television.
I am not sure when my wife and I first got our cell phones. I know it has been several years. They have become an almost indispensable part of life. As phones have gotten smaller and do more, we always want the latest and greatest. The size of the phone is one of the biggest features that my wife has always looked for in a phone. She wants something small and easy to carry with her. Same here.
I admit that I am not the hippest cat in town these days. Hell, just by using the phrase "hippest cat in town" proves that. Having said that, there are a number of things that happen in pop culture that I just do not get. The "Pop Phone" retro handset for your cell phone is one of the things that I just do not get. Have you seen these yet? It is an an old fashioned style handset that plugs into the earphone jack of your cell phone.

I am sure that I have bought some things in the past that were basically useless that I thought was cool or happening at the time. Maybe it's a young persons thing, but this is something that I can't see spending my hard earned money on. Am I wrong on this? What are your thoughts on the Pop Phone handset? Would you drop 30 bucks or so on something like this?
