«But what does the future hold? Projected on to one wall of the exhibition space is a baffling document entitled The Device Formerly Known as the Cell Phone: The Search for the Next Species. It is a sort of genetic tree diagram, packed with made-up quotes from youth: "I'm the fastest at finding the best MP3s," says one, "and I share them immediately with my friends." We are not, presumably, meant to infer that Motorola encourages music piracy.
Also festooned over the tree are made-up words describing the uses to which customers would like to put their mobile communications devices: they must be "multable", "tvable", "wholeable", "boomable" and "softable". I take my chunky silver handset out of my pocket and gaze at it sadly: there's no way I can mult or soft or boom this thing. Ah well. Maybe next year.»
