Cells phones – early demos & how they predict behavior

5 prototypes of the revolutionary Motorola DynaTAC phone

5 Prototypes of the revolutionary Motorola DynaTAC phone – as discussed in this great NYTimes Magazine article

There’s a great article in the New York Times Magazine about cell phone innovation.  The first part describes a very early demo of the Motorola DynaTAC phone in Manhattan.  The DynaTAC revolutionized the cell industry.

The second part is a Q&A with an MIT professor, talking about how our cell phones usage can predict our behavior.  It’s almost scary – not because cell phones can collect the data – but in how it shows just how predictable we can be.  From our eating and sleeping habits to how we act when we’re getting sick.

I found the first part of the article cool – and the second part enlightening.  What about you?
