Cell phones changing our social habits.

Of course we have all seen it happening, cell phones are changing us and its more than just the way we communicate. Example: I saw 3 people (all in a row) in the LA airport using the bathroom urinals while talking on their phones.
Another interesting example:

Americans, once keen on punctuality, are routinely late, using cells to set up new meetings or for last-minute planning. Also, as long as they’ve been warned, Americans aren’t automatically bothered by tardiness.
South Americans, where punctuality wasn’t a big deal in a pre-wireless world, are with cells more punctual and increasingly less tolerant of lateness.
