My mom now has a cell phone, which means that cell phones are now — officially – as mainstream as television, radio, and cassette tapes.  Um…. okay, maybe not that last one.

So now's a good time to point to a CNN interview with the inventor of the cell phone, Martin Cooper.  Cooper, a designer at Motorola at the time, made the first public cell phone call in 1973.  He knew, even then, that someday everyone would have one.  Interesting read.

And he's a Motorola Droid guy.
