I know that I have stated rather emphatically how much I love my cell phone (and maybe "swooned over" is truer than "stated"), but taking that vow to the grave — literally — is pretty major.
The article goes on to mention that this is not limited to phones — some people have been buried with iPod earbuds in, music playing — which I find kind of touching. There's also the factor that modern devices have much of what we treasure on them, like photos of our loved ones, which seems comforting.
But I just can't get the idea of a ringtone emanating from a coffin. . . and a call that will always go to voicemail. And what about the environmental impact of all of these gadgets going to the grave? What do you make of this phenomenon?
