    54. Research in Motion
    This is your brain on e-mail
    BlackBerry users are forced to go cold turkey when maker Research in Motion's servers go down for the better part of a day. "I felt like my left arm had been amputated," says one. Six months later a number of prominent addicts - including venture capitalist Fred Wilson and Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams - admit to experiencing phantom incoming-message vibrations even when not wearing their devices."

    I've been experiencing that for years before it had a name.
    Everyone though I was nuts...

    Being in IT for over 30-years, I cannot remember the time when I didn't have something on my right hip (before the BB there was the cell, before that there was the 2-way pager, before that there was the tiny beeper).
