It's also interesting how sf sometimes fetishizes tech and misses how it actually gets used in practice. Communicators in Star Trek - which are sort of cellphone like - were always used for Important Communications.

In the "real" star trek, the redshirt would be killed by the salt eating vampire because he was texting with someone on the ship and lacked situational awareness until it was too late.
