Does the phrase "Bad to worse" mean anything to you?

Because it's not enough that the woman in the minivan in front of you is talking on the phone. Now she's surfing ebay at the same time.
Autonet Mobile, a start-up wireless technology company based in San Francisco, is expected to announce this week that it has reached an agreement with Avis Rent A Car System to provide a rolling wifi hotspot to Avis customers by March. For $10.95 a day, Avis will issue motorists a notebook-size portable device that plugs into a car’s power supply and delivers a high-speed Internet connection.

They'll probably be putting on lipstick and talking on the phone about what their favorite lipstick is and buying it online all at the same time while they're swerving between lanes and running red lights

I hate the push in our society to stay "connected". I think the reason why most people in this country are tired all the time, is not because of hours worked, as much as the amount of things calling for ones mental attention everyday. Cell phone, internet, wi fi, hi fi, blackberry, e-bay, amazon, blue tooth, I-pod, on and on. It's a wonder anyone gets anything done... either way I'm done. I'm ditching my cell phone and lap top, moving to the woods. I'll take my chances with a grizzly bear over a soccer Mom with 6 electronic devices, 3 screaming kids crying for more media, while she puts on make-up going 90 down the freeway any day. If you want to get a hold of me...rap on a tree truck three times...come on over and we'll eat some granola...or not

You know it's funny, I thought it was a pretty sweet idea, but you people seem to have ruined it for me.
