A funeral home in Hollywood, California reports that under-40s are taking their Blackberries with them when they go. I mean really go, as in dead. Sort of gives new meaning to the word mobile.
One guy even had his GameBoy put in his casket. This trend apparently started in the UK, Australia, and South Africa and is spreading to the US. Mobile technology is not only changing the way we live, it’s changing the way we die, too. I’ve started a new mobile technology links site, mobilejprof.com, where Jim Stovall and I are exploring the impact of mobile technology on church, journalism, and culture. Drop in sometime and tell me how you think mobile technology is and will change us. Should be an interesting conversation.
