I can't think of one person I know of who doesn't have a cell phone.Yeah. It's not really of much use to me except for planning things with friends and talking to those that don't have phones.
Actually I use Google+ for the hang outs. From my iPhone I can have a video conference with several different people around the world. Its interesting because the feed will cut to whop ever is talking or moving the most. Like some one will say something funny and its cuts to each person laughing like reaction shots. slick.The one I got bored with quick was Google+.
Aren't you describing MacRumors?I get bored with all the pointless posts & games, but I mainly use it to keep in touch with my American friends and family, it's nice to see pictures of where they are, and they sometimes 'like' pictures of my England. - it's a great place to find out gossip about your next door neighbour or coworker too!
