The answer to your question is undeniably "yes" and has been for a long time. Despite the image of the business executive with his laptop, cellphone, and BlackBerry, people in positions of real power are unfettered by such appertances. They rely on assistants to filter all of the communication. As the overload of little buzzing electronics overwhelms even the nerdiest CEO, the ability to disconnect (or at least the appearance of being disconnected) will be more of a status symbol among the lower orders of power.

And, FWIW, even though there is no phone on Half Dome, there is cell service. I know because I made a call from there a few years ago.
