Ashley Tisdale and Other Celebrities Bring BlackBerry and iPhone Cell Phones to the Beach and Pools in Bikinis

Geek Out: Do You Take Your Cell Phone to the Pool or Beach?

I'm pretty low maintenance when I'm lucky enough to hit the beach or the pool in the summertime, requiring only some sunscreen, chapstick, and a book — but I cannot leave my iPhone behind (um, I do realize that this may make me high maintenance, but I'm ignoring that).

I need my lifeline to the outside world as well as my iPod, plus I know it's not that weird — celebrities are always photographed using their cell phones while poolside. Just yesterday Ashley Tisdale was caught in a skimpy bikini, checking a BlackBerry (um, I do realize that rationalizing that something is normal because a celebrity does it is not a good argument, but I'm ignoring that).

In any case, our dependence on gadgets has made their presence at the beach or poolside a regular occurrence (just don't drop it in). Do you take and use your cell phone when you go to the beach, pool, or lake?
