I heard something on the news yesterday where it was suggested (as part of a stress reduction plan, I think it was) that people ONLY check their email once PER HOUR (seems many check it lots more often than that), so you'd have at least that may glove changes.

Checking email on one's cell phone only hourly is one of those cookie cutter rules that just can't fit a lot of people. For many, it's their business phone. For many tourists, it's their phone/map/information finder. For most people, texting is as important as emails and phone calls. And for a growing number, it's the most common use. So....placing a once an hour limitation on using a cell phone isn't workable.

Unless it's MY ancient cell phone--which isn't "smart" at all! ;-)
