"The Story of Electronics [...] employs the Story of Stuff style to explore the high-tech revolution's collateral damage—25 million tons of e-waste and counting, poisoned workers and a public left holding the bill."

"Host Annie Leonard takes viewers from the mines and factories where our gadgets begin to the horrific backyard recycling shops in China where many end up. The film concludes with a call for a green 'race to the top' where designers compete to make long-lasting, toxic-free products that are fully and easily recyclable.
Their production partner on the electronics film is the Electronics TakeBack Coalition, which promotes green design and responsible recycling in the electronics industry."

The American "cell phone behaviour"...

...was analysed by "Pew Internet" : they released a study which showed that if 65% of the American adults regularly use text messaging in September 2009, one year later 72% of them do.  The study also pointed out 90% of 18 to 29-year old sleep with their cell phone 'on' whereas only 34% of 65-year old do it. Today the American teenagers text 50 messages a day on average : it's 5 times more than the average 10 text messages sent/received per day by adults !

"A fake wi-fi hotspot run by criminals could allow them

  to steal passwords and log into social networking sites :

[...] Facebook has responded by saying it advises people to be careful with what data they give out to unknown networks, "in the same way we look to draw out cash from legitimate ATM (cashpoint) machines". [...] Apple has responded to the way that the latest iPhone is unlocked in this video, by saying that a recent update can be downloaded to prevent this."
