A rather interesting piece of digest for you, dear reader, this week.  It's a given nowadays that the smartphone has become a stablemate to anyone's lifestyle: a pocket occupying technology of convergence and faulty antennae (not just in the iPhone 4).  But are you willing to give up such activities like cleaning your teeth?  Possessions like your shoes?  Or the fine act (that nrm writers know very little) of making love?
