On the other hand... shortly after moving from the UK to Silicon Valley I went to my first US sf con, where I went along to the panel on cutting edge technology where they were burbling about the new and exciting developments in mobile phone tech that would be coming Soon! and wasn't it great to be piloting this sort of tech and being amongst the first to get it because we are Silicon Valley and living in the future!

And I made myself very unpopular by sticking up my hand and saying in my very English accent "You mean you guys don't have that stuff here yet?"
