Edited by Jay

One thing that has changed since we as a society have transitioned into using minicomputers for cell phones, is our readiness to memorize phone numbers. With today's tech, you can add or create a contact without ever having to look at a number, let alone memorize it. This applies to our personal phone number as well, although most of us can recite it eventually, the process admittedly takes longer than it did back in the day.
