Screen Your Calls

Even more so than in the US, people in Japan are overwhelmingly addicted to text messaging, mainly because making cell phone calls in public is considered extremely rude. However, overcrowded public spaces such as the subway are not always the most private, so it has become common practice to use stick-on cell phone privacy screens which are thin, tinted plastic screens (similar to iPod protectors) that make it impossible to read a cell phone screen from any angle but straight on. While you can currently find a screen for almost every model online with a little searching, I am sure these screens will become standard accessories here in the States very soon. For all you blackberry users out there, here is a screen I found on ebay for under a buck!
