Last year when my manager mentioned getting a BlackBerry I really didn't like the idea. I didn't want to have it be a drain on my productivity. It also seems like a ball-and-chain. Now my calendar is so hectic that I just went ahead and got one. I now have a shiny, new 8330 and I couldn't be happier. Now I know why they call it a CrackBerry. I find myself reading my Gmail, Google News or whatever in what was previously wasted time. I'm no longer bored while standing in line! Hopefully this new addiction won't become problematic.
