Is it my imagination or is everyone addicted to their blackberries? I now find when I'm out to dinner people will check their machines in the middle of a conversation. I love my blackberry and I know I must look a little like those people to non-crackberry addicts; however unless I am waiting for some important news (and I would tell that to the people I was dinning with) I can wait to check the blackberry until later. (I think)
As I said I am no anti-tech freak. The exact opposite, I love the stuff. But, when you are at a dinner with friends or colleagues do you need to look at it ALL NIGHT LONG? I admit if I'm out during the day, even for lunch I'll look at it during the meal. During the day is normal; you are away from the office and need to keep in touch.
I want to say a few more things, but my blackberry is buzzing and I need to get it. So ignore everything I just said...I'm an addict too!!!
