Technology "Watch"

Here is an interesting story about a trend that has been growing over the last several years:

Cell phones taking over as timepieces

This is true. Ninety percent of all college students use cell phones now, almost all of which prominently display the time on their screens. My own watch broke many months ago, and I have not had the desire to buy another simply because I carry my own "pocket watch" of sorts around with me all of the time. It is very interesting to watch the unintended ripple effects of devices and technologies as they become ubiquitous. Who knew that the rise of cell phones would mark the decline of the watchmaking industry?
