As glamorous and fun as they are, most gadgets are breeding grounds for bacteria. Cell phones are among the worst because they come in contact with our hands, face, purses, desks and many other dirty hot spots. I periodically wipe down my cell phone with a damp cloth and always wash my hands, but I can't help but get a few pesky pimples on my cheek or jawline- the exact spot where I hold my cell phone.

I can't deny the fact that I'm constantly on my BlackBerry- whether I'm returning a missed call, listening to my voicemail or sending a text message, I am always connected in some way, shape or form. Although I'm guilty of being glued to my phone 24/7, I can recognize that there is a time and place for cell phone use and know when to turn my phone off. According to CNN, Pew Research conducted a poll last year, which found that 81 percent of people were irritated by loud and annoying cell phones in public places. The poll also revealed that a quarter of respondents would answer their phone even if it interrupted a meal or meeting. And it was no surprise that a 2006 ABC News poll indicated that three-quarters of those surveyed had observed someone using a phone or e-mailing and text messaging in mid-conversation. Time to fess up! Where do you fall in these statistics? Do you practice tech manners when out in public?
