Technology has made the world borderless. We can practically shop online from any store in the world, do banking online anywhere, call anyone wherever he is. Just yesterday, I called a colleague forgetting that he is on a holiday in Spain. Oops! When I called him, it was probably 3:00am in the morning over there. No wonder, he sounded grouchy. lol
The phone is a wonderful tool, no doubt, but what's not so wonderful is that you could be left holding on to a dead line when the battery is out, just like the other night when I was on the phone with someone in Penang when my cordless phone battery went flat.
