Handsets gets taken to the grave
More people than ever are asking to be buried or cremated with their mobile phones when they die. The trend, which began in South Africa, has now spread to a number of countries, including Ireland, Australia, Ghana, and the US.
“People want to be buried with the totems that they feel represents their lifestyle.”
“We came across one guy who asked to be buried with his mobile phone and his Blackberry, and also with his laptop.” , thus Martin Raymond, director of international trend-spotting think-tank, The Future Laboratory.
