Is there any good reasons for me to get a cell phone? Everyone has one, but any specific reasons?

The primary reason: to be able to phone and be phoned while not at home. If you don't need that, don't buy it, unless you want to use it for (for example) listening to MP3, sending and receiving SMS (text messages) or taking pictures.

I've got one myself, and use it about twice a month, to tell my wife I missed the train and will be home later. And about once a year my work wants to be able to reach me during the weekend, and I prefer not to stay home the whole weekend, so I switch it on and take it with me then.

If you have friends who want to get in tounch with you, if you have co-workers you need to contact, if you have a heart attack in the street, if you are accosted in the street, if you need to dial 911, if you witness a murder, if you witness a hit-and run, then it might be nice to have a phone wherever you are.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
