The Life Of A Blackberry Widow
from the still-going... dept
I could have sworn I saw similar articles years ago, but maybe it's just a sign of how long RIM has been wrecking marriages with their BlackBerry device that it's never too late to publish the story of a "BlackBerry widow" who laments the entrance of the wireless device that seems to get much more attention from her husband than she ever does. There's just something about anywhere, any time connectivity that makes people feel the need to constantly check the device and to respond immediately. There's some element of "well, because I can" and some element of wanting to appear always on the job to avoid losing the job. Still, next thing you know marriage counselors will start adding "Blackberry addiction" to their list of problems along with the ever popular "internet addiction."
