This is off topic of course, but as a pro I see it all the time that what phones can do today (I have an iPhone 5S and I'm very impressed.) is simply amazing.

What's depressing is everyone is a photographer plus the need for pros is dropping. We're not necessary, people accept the good enough cell phones so news agencies are firing photography staffs left and right. Chicago Sun Times canned their whole staff in one shot, some guys had been there 30+ years. Reuters did the same.

You'd think, as much demand for media as we have that wouldn't be the case but a basic shot that looks good in web format is all they need.

Working a summer job at Lowes during college ('96) loaded a 56-gallon water heater into the passenger seat of a new Corvette. I just fastened the seatbelt around it and said "Have a good one!" This doesn't surprise me at all.

No, not even close.

You're a braver man than I am - when I see something stupid like that on the road I give the driver a lot more room and space than you did here. I doubt the box would slide out,but you never know.

I am perfectly capable of taking a picture while driving in a safe manner.

You will notice that I am not in my beloved Excursion. I'm in Bob, my 1997 Olds 88 transporation appliance, (Aka: work car). I feel exactly zero affection for Bob other than the fact that he gets double the MPG and keeps me from grinding the Exy to dust simply to go back and forth to work. Had the box slid out, I doubt I would have attempted a swerve to miss it. With that being said, however, I feel the safest place to keep someone like that is behind you. And seeing how I was going to pass him anyway, I figured I'd snap a pic.
