Tomi suggests that mobile phone is the first always-on mass media. Research shown that 7 out of 10 people sleep with the phone within arm's reach.

I find this rather interesting, come to think of it I never had my mobile turned off as well. :o Well, unless it runs out of power, but thats another question.

Question of the day is: Do you ever switch off your phone, manually?

If yes, why? Let the :gathering: begins shall we?
