Ex.2a, p.234 What does your article tell you about: the advantages of the mobile phone or its disadvantages? 
Article A
My teenage daughter got a new mobile and I’m totally confused. Emily’s new phone plays music and videos. It has games and a navigation system. It connects to the Internet. I cry out for olden times, when a phone to a teenager meant having his / her own extension in the bedroom. Now things are much more complex, and a parent can’t even eavesdrop.
When mobile phones appeared, we though they were just a passing fad. However, they have become more important to young people than schoolwork, following dress codes, and writing thankyou notes, all put together.
I was out-of-my-element as we entered the busy phone store. We approached the counter, and a shop-assistant interrupted her conversation on (what else?) a mobile.
“We just want a simple phone,” I stated.
The woman asked, “What do you mean?”
Emily elbowed me. “What she means is we want an LG Chocolate.”
“We simply want a basic phone with no bells and whistlesno downloads, no uploads, no extra minutes, no ring tones, no dial tones, no Sudoku, no nothing. Just simple. And cheap.”
My voice had got loud, and I found myself growing warm as people turned to look at me. Emily covered her face with her hands.
“I’m sorry,” I said, recovering myself. “Go ahead and give her the Large Chocolate, and throw in a hamburger, please.”
I left the store nostalgic for the time when you could pick up a black receiver and an operator said, “Number please.” Then you recited three numbers and a letter, and the call went through. And if you had a party line, you could listen to other parties talk.
Why on earth must we improve on what is already perfect?

Article B
Hold on while I just download some games for my mobile phone!
Na, seriously, I am a teenager and we have a right to mobile phones. We are the future of this world and mobile phones are the future of technology.
All the old people reading this, just think back to when you where in high school. I’m sure you had some trendy thing that older people disagreed with. Maybe it was a yo-yo or some weird thing you old people play with. Did you want to keep it or throw it away?
Phones are useful in more ways than you could even dream of, a lot more useful than your favourite yo-yo. Primarily they connect us to our friends that we can’t always talk to. Secondly, they have games – ENTERTAINMENT! It could just be better than your old yo-yo! They also play music. Amazing, isn’t it!
That is the same with mobile phones: we love them even if older people disagree. Power to the future! P.S. LG Chocolate is a nice phone!

Article C
The mobile phone has become the most important way of communication for teens and they often avoid contact with peers that don’t have mobile phones. “Next time a teenager says, ‘Mom, Dad, if I don’t have a phone, I’m going to be a nobody,’ they are being serious,” said Robbie Blinkoff. Blinkoff and his colleagues studied the behaviour of 144 mobile phone users between the ages of 16 and 40 from several countries and found that teenagers often saw little difference between meeting face to face and talking on the phone. They often saw groups of teenagers sitting together, talking with faraway friends on their mobiles rather than to each other.
Can we say that mobile phones are wolves in sheep’s clothing?
40% of young adults use their mobile phones during more than four hours a day to talk or send text messages. If they miss a call or a message, it makes them feel “deeply upset and sad”.
The main difference between this kind of addiction and alcoholism or drug-addiction is that mobile-addicts can be seriously affected psychologically but, as they don’t show any physical symptoms, others don’t see their problem. In fact, addiction to mobile phones is a part of a greater group – that of addiction to new technologies.
Mobile-addicts forget about important activities (studies), drift apart from friends and close family and think about the mobile phone constantly when they do not have it with them. There was once a teenager who had 14 mobile phones. She spent sleepless nights in the company of phantom chat partners and finally dropped out of school.
A huge number of teens use their mobile phones during school. The survey also revealed that on average, teens spend almost as much time on their mobile phones as they spend doing physical activity. One half of those surveyed said they would rather have their TV privileges cut down than their mobile phone use, while more than a quarter (27%) indicated they would prefer to have Web access limited rather than have their mobile phones taken away.
