The video seems to cut off before the guy's wife divorces him for talking on the phone while on vacation.

Remarkably accurate . . . only pitching the date a little earlier than it really turned out to be.

Nice one, Motorola.

I do find it disturbing, though, that the ability to bother people with work on their holidays is touted as a good thing.

Not only that Matt but he seems to own his own private beach and seems strangely self-conscious when his phone goes off. Wonderful stuff.

It actually took me a second to realize what was so futuristic about those phones - and then I remembered what my dad's mobile was like back in 92..
