    New Yorkers check their e-mail more than anyone else, survey says

    Where do you check yours?

    The bathroom, the bedroom - even church is no longer seen as off-limits by e-mail-addicted New Yorkers.

    One in six New Yorkers check their e-mail as soon as they wake up and 15% look at their in-box right after dinner, AOL Mail research shows. The most popular spots for getting the latest news are while in bed (70%), in the bathroom (61%) or in a restaurant (60%). Being out on a date, in church or enjoying happy hour at a bar is also no deterrent for the most hard-core addicts.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well the reason that I got the blackberry was for me to get all my emails anytime anywhere I'm @. Well with blackberry the emails find you , you don't need to check it that is very special...that's why I love my Blackberry lol

    Wow maybe I'm a New Yorker. One of the reasons I wanted my BB in the 1st place was to get emails. Haha I'm addicted.

    I got a Blackberry for the same reason; to receive my emails. Why else is there to have a Blackberry?? I also got a Blackberry because it was like a mini computer. I am in the IT field working with Blackberry's. So if I work with them then, there is another reason why to have one also..... Truthfully I am an @ddict.........

    I'm not for New York but I check all of the above. As a matter of fact the number two spot in the article is exactly where I am posting from now but I originally read the article in bed. Go figure! BTW I'm an ADDICT! Please, somebody don't stop me!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I too am guilty as charged, check it during the night, my BB sleeps right next to me, check it in church, glancing at my BB every few minutes looking for the blinking light, and yes, I occasionally even take it into the little girls room.

    But, I do have the ability to put it down in another room and hang out with my family. It's not always easy though. And at work I often have to put it where I can't see it if I'm in the middle of a project I really need to focus on......

    There's just something alluring about the blinking light........if I see it, I MUST know who it is and what they want.........and if it's not blinking, well maybe there's something wrong , is there an outage, should I send myself a test email, resend my service books, check on Pinstack to see if others are having the same issue???????

    Yeah, I probably need help, deliverance, something........but I don't have time, I've gotta go check my email

    Yup! you sure can, when I had my Ipaq many Moon ago, I had an entire Study Library from Laridan, but now with Blackberry they only have a few Bible Translations but it'll do; you can check it out here

    MobiPocket read is not really ready for BlackBerry, the navigation hasn't been worked out yet for the blackberry so its just a waste of money.
