    Did anyone else see on the Today show this A.M. The class they are offering for Blackberry addictions. It was pretty cool. When they were on a break, all the addicts had to go to their phones and punch away. LOL. They asked them what they would do more of if they didn't have their phones or computers. Interesting. One girl had 4 computers plus her phone going all at once. Thats an addiction

    I have two computers plus my BB. And if we're getting technical, my router could also be considered a computer since it does have a CPU in it.

    I've got my laptop, a desktop I hardly use (my parent's) and my BlackBerry. Oh, and half a computer in boxes. Anybody need a HDD?

    Could you imagine if somebody started a class like that to ween us all off Crackberry. During break you'd see everyone on their BB going to the wap site.

    I just got my first BB a week ago and I find myself picking it up for no apparent reason. I keep showing everybody my phone like they should be interested, and they're all like "Wow, great." If I could type in a condescending tone, thats how that "Wow, great" would have sounded! I think I'm well on my way to that dark place called addiction. Will there be any Intevention episodes about Smart Phones!?!

    LOL. That would make a good parody too. Tonight on Intervention; John's addiction to his BlackBerry is tearing his family apart. Can he break his addiction? Find out tonight at 10pm.
