    Well, as soon as I got to work I was all over that thing, thumbs gone wild!

    The drive home was all business as usual...Checking voice mail, email, websites.

    Guess I'll have to create a 12 step program for BBWD.

    Darn it though, if you all weren't so conversational I'd have less to chat about!

    I'm guilty as charged! It's my wifes fault though. She's the one addicted to BB Msgr! LOL

    Re: Blackberry While Driving?

    I've mastered typing with one thumb and glancing down every third word. With hands almost 10 and 2 on the wheel, the blackberry is at 2 all the time.
    I drive with Cruise on all of the time, so I usually don't have to worry about speeding...
    But, there have been times I've been typing and cruising, and all of a sudden looked up and focused and asked myself, "how did I get here? did I miss my cut-off?" It can be scary; at which point, I set it down for a few minutes, regain composure, and then finish off the e-mail.

    Re: Blackberry While Driving?

    Ahh Yes! I know that well. You look up and realize your up near 90mph and still accelerating, going into a blind curve, radio blarring, and... you think I am almost done typing this.....

    Re: Blackberry While Driving?

    Got and e-mail today, (while driving) on the way to the office. Took my brand new BB -- up and running for 2 whole days now -- out of the shiney new holster. Wow! This is great . . .

    Tried to read the e-mail. The "Messages" section did in fact open, but further down the page on some older messages. Tried to scroll up. Dropped the BB on my lap. Was feeling, then looking around, figuring "Hey, how far could this thing have gone, it's still in my lap, somewhere" -- and great -- found it. Picked it up, tried to scroll again. Almost dropped it again. Was able to click on the e-mail and needed to scroll down past all the header info. Started to read my e-mail and was distracted a bit . . .

    By the honking horns of the cars that were alerting me to the fact that I was driving on the shoulder of the road!!!

    Just kidding. No offense, but this does seem a bit dangerous. I'll play it safe, LOL.

    I thought that was what the shoulder was for. Isn't that the Blackberry lane?

    Re: Blackberry While Driving?

    All kidding aside, today, while driving on Route 4 West (for those of you who know Northern NJ), a 2 and 3 lane highway, I saw a guy driving a Hummer, reading the newspaper and holding a BB.

    I pulled over and waited for him to get several miles ahead of me, LOL.

    NJ -- home of the jug-handle, the diner, and the highest auto insurance costs in the US (at least that was a claim to fame several years ago). I am not sure if that's still true.

    And now the only state that you may drive, read a newspaper, and check your email at the same time.
