the day the cell phone died

Via Cory Doctorow, a clever little video highlighting the cell phone failures that angst up the modern thriller. (Warning: salty language and excessive horror cheesiness.)

There's an element of verisimilitude to the cliché; in the summer of '08 my wife and I found ourselves stranded in the Olympic mountains, no cell signal. And there's nothing more frightening than mountains.
