  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Hrm. Maybe a better question to ask is "In what year did you first get a cell phone?" I still remember my father's car phone, and his bag phone.

    Same here, or at least they were huge and expensive 14 years ago.

    A more sensible question would be in what year you got your first mobile. Early 90s, late 90s, 2000-2003, 2003-2005, 2005-2007, 2007+ or something similar would make the poll actually useful, and I guess that goes against Slashdot rules.

    This poll is more useless than most because cell phones haven't been available to the public long enough. In order to make any sense out of the results of this poll, age data would need to be provided in order to categorize responses based on technological practicality. All the results for this poll tell me is what I already knew: the majority of people on this site are older than the internet.
