Millions moving to cellular only

Not a huge surprise for those of us who know people like this, but an article from the Associated Press (courtesy of Wired) indicates that the growing trend is pushing 7.5 million people who have eschewed land lines for a cellular-only lifestyle.

Although the article mentions that the number of land line phones has dropped 3% since 200 (by about 5 million lines), it doesn't mention that during that time, a number of small businesses have closed (fewer lines needed) and there has been a big push to DSL and cable internet access, both of which tend to encourage people to drop second lines that they had installed for internet and dial-up access.
