手机

Mobile Phone

我想不起哪一个熟人没有手机。

None of my acquaintances, as far as I can remember, has no mobile phone,

今天没有手机的人是奇怪的,这种人才需要解释。

and he who does not own one nowadays will definitely be seen as a weirdo.

我们的所有社会关系都储存在手机的电话本里,可以随时调出使用。

We can contact everyone through mobile phones at anytime, 

古代只有巫师才能拥有这种法宝。

which is impossible for ordinary people except wizards.

手机刷新了人与人的关系。

Mobile phones have altered interpersonal relations.

会议室门口通常贴着一条通告:请与会者关闭手机。

There is usually a notice on the door of a conference room, which reads, "Please switch off your mobile phone", 

可是会议室里的手机铃声仍然响成一片。

but phone rings are still resounding here and there.

我们都是普通人,并没有多少重要的事情。

Common people as we are, with few urgencies to deal with,

尽管如此,我们也不会轻易关掉手机。

we are reluctant to power off our mobile phones unless absolutely necessary.

打开手机象征我们与这个世界的联系。

A power-on mobile phone bridges us with the world.

手机反映出我们的“社交饥渴症”。

It reflects our thirst for social communication, 

最常见的是,一个人走着走着突然停下来,眼睛盯着手机屏幕发短信。

as can often be seen in a phone user who comes to a sudden halt on his way,  busy texting with eyes glued at the screen, 

他不在乎停在马路中央还是厕所旁边。

not caring whether he is standing in the middle of a road or right beside a toilet.
