British Telecom is urging Britons NOT to use cellphones. No, not because of cancer or anything semi-serious like that. BT is pissed that they’re earning less and less money from payphones. Well, they should be. Americans think that the red London phone box is quaint and fun, but in reality they’re dirty, expensive, and broken half the time. Most of them are also covered inside with flyers for prostitutes and escorts, which makes using them a rather uncomfortable experience (for me anyway). And besides, using a “mobile” is damn fun. I’m a text-messaging fool.
