We often see only the bad sides of electronic communication devices and never see the real pros. When beginning to decide on my list of dos and don’ts for this exercise, I soon realized I could only think of mainly don’ts and only one do. Seeing that my cell phone is always attached to my hip, I thought this was rather odd.
