How would anyone not know this?

AUTO CENTRAL - May 13, 2013: I can across a story on the Internet today in which former Speaker of the House of Representative Newt Gingrich posed a YouTube video question. It seems he thinks cell phones, because of their many features other than a telephone, should no longer be called "cell phones." The correct answer, to me, is very obvious and I'd be shocked to learn that a billion Star Trek fans haven't already made this suggestion: Our cell-phone devices should be called "communicators."

Gingrich clearly pointed out that today's cell phone's are more more than just a smart phone; they take pictures and video - which can be sent to others, you can send text messages in a variety of ways, they have navigation and gps, you can watch TV, listen to music, etc., etc., etc. They are communicators, so let's call them "communicators."

So much of Star Trek's terminology has been adapted by people all over the world that this seems to me to be a no-brainer. In fact, as of today, I'm only going to refer to my communicator, as a "communicator."

Once again, Star Trek's futurism provides illumination in today's world.
