Smart phones will save the private automobile

That’s what the Washington Examiner‘s Mark Tapscott says. His theory is that people who like the mobility and convenience of a smart phone like an iPod or a Droid over the single-purpose, non-mobile, very inconvenient land line phone will never give up their very convenient, very mobile private automobiles for public transit:

We love our mobile phones and our cars because they enable us to do so much more. That’s why we can’t get enough of them, making and improving them creates jobs for thousands of people and economic opportunities for millions, the world is made smaller through them, and our lives are richer and more rewarding because of them.
