Cell Phone: Blessing Or Curse?

A study suggests cell phones are making family life a lot more stressful:
One expert thinks the findings support the idea that cell phones are changing culture -- and not necessarily for the better.

"These findings seem to support my intuitions about how cell phones affect our daily lives -- blurring boundaries between work and family life because of increased accessibility," said Tate Kubose, a cognitive scientist at the University of Illinois Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology.

"They also support the notion that we should really appreciate our women more, as they seem to shoulder a lot of the burden, even in marriages where both spouses work," he added.
