LOUD. Pros aside, this has been one of the most irritating effects of cellphone culture. Jim Coudal and Aaron Draplin have come up with a solution called SHHH! Society for HandHeld Hushing. Hand over cards such as the one shown here and quit the place! Over a quarter-million of this pdf had been downloaded, says Wired.

Other innovative contributions to this growing menace - personal booth, pointed by Gizmodo.

Japanese cellphone culture (Keitai Culture) seems to have worked out social norms.

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
