The article reports that it was about 20 years ago that Barry Leonard, president of New York-based Ex-Cell Home Fashions, remembers being at the mercy of the pay phone. During his frequent travels, he was chained to them sometimes for up to two hours at a time to return missed calls and catch up on business with his office. Today, like many, Leonard's office is as mobile as his global cell phone and as accessible as his e-mail. That is precisely why Loren Sweet, president of Brentwood Originals, is attached not only to his internationally connected cell phone, but also his e-mail and voicemail.
