Commercials are the bane of our TV-addicted existence. They stink so much to watch that somebody had to go and invent TiVo so we didn't have to sit through one more rugged SUV bouncing over rocky terrain in those lame car spots.

Nobody paid me off to share this with you (you can trust me and my checking account). It just stood out as a cool 1-minute video full of facts that connect the little things that each of us does everyday to a bigger picture of the mobile-connected world. Who knew that 29 people just now left their cell phones in a cab?
