Watch Celling Out - Alternative Versions.
This is an interesting addition to the DVD for Cellular, it's basically
a lot of telecommunications engineers talking about the history of
cell-phones from the "brick" of the 1970s to the 4 ounce video camera
phones that we use today. It's like that educational video about rats
that is on the Willard DVD. You haven't seen that, but it's basically a
learning channel video about rats and their mating habits and whatnot.
Celling Out looks like it was made for the History Channel or the
Discovery Channel about the history of cell-phones. It has nothing to
do with the making of the movie, but is interesting nonetheless.
It also makes a pretty funny comment on the commercial success of
cell-phones, as far as people making phone calls that they wouldn't
otherwise have made. One guy makes especially amusing comments about
the triviality of a lot of the conversations that people have with each
other on cell-phones. They trace the transformation of the cell-phone
from a communication device and into an entertainment center, even as a
dating device. One guy even asserts that it's the cell-phone into which
all other common devices will be absorbed TV remote, laptop computer,
palm pilots, etc.
Cell phones have revolutionized the way people communicate, and this
short documentary goes into great detail about both the pros and cons
of these advancements in technology, although it does make a complaint
about them that I've never understood. Larry Cohen, co-writer of
Cellular, mentions that he doesn't want to be reached at all times, he
doesn't want someone keeping tabs on him all the time. This has always
seemed like a trivial and even paranoid complaint. I've never seen a
cell-phone that couldn't be turned off.
It's too bad about the ending, because once the documentary gets into
hypothesizing about the future, there are some pretty outlandish claims
being made and the revelation that the people interviewed in the
documentaries might be a little more obsessed with cell-phones than is
quite healthy. The assertion is made that sometime in the near future
cell-phones will be embedded under the skin behind the ear, which can
stretch to believe, and that you will be able to make phone calls just
by thinking about it, which I don't believe for a second. Maybe I'm
just shortsighted, but it doesn't seem that that can happen without
opening up the skull and connecting the cellular implant directly to
Forget about whether or not the technology will ever be available, the
question is whether people are going to want to have their skulls
opened up so they don't have to dial phone numbers anymore. This is the
kind of thinking that led people 40 years ago to assume that there
would be flying cars by the year 2000. Well, here we are in 2005 and
people still tend to like to have their cars running along the ground,
and I have a hypothesis that it will be quite some time before popular
opinion will involve mass approval of brain surgery to avoid dialing.
Other than that, however, this is a very informative, if not especially
