    Re: Article about 'Crackberry/Interweb Addiction'

    i completely agree that it is addicting in some form. technology is a b!tch and as it continues to grow and improve you think it will get any better?? no. people today hardly have any intercourse as it is.

    i.e. google brain, gps is a nice tool but also dumbs people down.

    i get a high five on being able to use that word without it having a sexual overtone!!

    Ahh, yes, the precursor to a Drug Company coming up with a pill to cure said "addiction".

    What will we call the internet pill? All the cool colors are gone.

    The little blue pill, the purple pill, the yellow pill, the green pill...

    Re: Article about 'Crackberry/Interweb Addiction'

    Yeah, what will the effects of this pill be?

    I can see the disclaimer at the end of the commercial:

    Berryagra should not be taken if you're nursing, pregnant, about to become pregnant, thinking about being pregnant, wondering what it feels like to be pregnant, or if you look like Rosie O'Donnell. Side effects include miasma, vomiting, night sweats, dark circles under your eyes, photoshops of your head on celebrities, red eyes, dependency on Diet Pepsi Max for normal daily functioning, heart palpitations, low blood pressure, lowered sex drive, bloating, weight gain, conversion to the church of scientology, a strange desire to marry Tom Cruise or John Travolta, diabetes, anthrax, and visitation from one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. If any of these conditions persist for more than 4 hours, please consult your physician.

    I'm addicted to my blackberry, but I was addicted to my Sidekick too...I have an addiction to keeping my mind and fingers occupied with fun games and the net.
