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?

I do but I don't have an iphone so I can't see the screen in the sunlight at all.

It's been so long since I've hung out at a pool or beach that I didn't have a cell phone back then. Now, of course I would have it. Why not? The only thing I would be worried about is someone swiping it if I didn't have anyone to watch my stuff.

The beach is my backyard, so all the time. Haha!

I can't think of a time or place where I wouldn't have my iPhone. It's my job to stay connected. And actually I've so thankful for the iPhone as I used to have to drag my computer everywhere.

yes. it's got my playlists on them so not only do i bring it to stay connected incase of emergency but i also use it to listen to my music while i'm getting a tan. time can get away from you while relaxing at the beach so i like to use the songs as a way to know when to reapply sunscreen and flip over so i get an even tan & no sunburn!!
