Introduction

Have you ever been in a classroom and your phone suddenly starts belting the whimsical chimes of your ringtone? The first instinct is to reach into your pocket more quickly then you have ever done before and hit the volume control button to silence it, hopefully sparing yourself from a fierce look of disappointment from your professor. Without a functioning button you would have certainly felt the full fury of this glare.
