    It's very obvious that this forum is not impartial, and except for the troll visits, members here are not sharing the bad side of owning a PB. I will now be truthful and enlighten those that want to know the truth.

    First, I have become hated and shunned by my co-workers. First it was due to me owning the first PB in the company, now that most everyone has one or is getting one, it is still because I was the first one to have one in the company, and because my boss is thankful for pushing the idea and brings that fact up often. I now have my own motorcycle parking space and a special dock for my PB. Jealousy. an evil emotion.

    My family is now displeased with me because they are now eating crow. With two iPads in the house first and me heralding the attributes of the PB before they bought them, telling them they would be sorry, I am now shunned and ignored. My wife bought one and my daughter is about to get her's, yet they begrudge me running around the house singing the " I told you so" song. What's up with that?

    They also say I spend too much time on my PB rather than interacting with them. Duhh! Who wouldn't? I can't help it. Besides, I video chat to my wife all the time, and as soon as my daughter has her's, I'll start talking to her again too.

    My friends quit calling me or coming over. They say all I do is talk about my PB. My PB this and my PB that, blah blah blah. I show them videos, I'm always showing them photos, games, and my newest apps. But my favorite is to open up several apps, and while running in the background, start a movie. Hey! I'm trying to help and educate them. My gosh, I'm becoming obnoxious!!!

    Some of my ex-motorcycle riding buddies say I'm more interested in riding with my PB than riding with them. Well of course, my PB is always ready to go, is better to look at, keeps me entertained, is more loyal, there when I need it and quiet when I want it to be. When I need directions, I trust it more than them. Who needs friends?

    I quit watching my favorite shows, I'm on my PB. I quit reading, I'm on my PB. When I should be sleeping , I'm on my PB. When I should be taking a shower, I'm on my PB. Eating? No time, I'm on my PB. ( good PB diet). Brush my teeth? Hah! PB time. I only go to work now because I can use a PB there.

    I'm now catching myself walking up to total strangers and showing them my PB. I follow them and don't stop until I've gotten to the demo movie.

    You see? it goes on and on. The PB has ruined my life. It will ruin yours! And I know I'm not the only one!

    I'm sorry, but it had to be said.

    Edit: I have to come clean with it all. The worst I left off. It is so bad I actually made a man purse to carry my PB when it's too warm to carry in my jacket. But I made it out of leather, held it in front of my truck exhaust pipe to get an odor, roughed it up a lot so it looks like I fight a lot or am very adventurous, bought some chewing tobacco, chewed some and spit a little on it (after I got sick) and put some NASCAR and MMA stickers on it. Pretty manly looking if I must say so myself. This PB is ruining me. Thanks RIM!
    Well I'm having similar issues. I've got 5 sold around the company and one total stranger. (Big mistake by the way. He went on to buy the last 32gig in the store. I was going to get an extra one) but he needed more than I did) I just love to see a new pb owner with their new bundle of joy.
    By the way you need to run that bag over a couple times with your truck. A few tire tracks out to man it up a bit.
    OH! and for goodness sakes take out the pb first!

    As an active member of AA, I certainly try to apply those principles to my Playbook. My addiction really started with my first Blackberry (Curve 8330) and continues today. The combination of my Bold 9930 and Playbook is like "Tech Crack". I take a thousand deep hits off my PB/Bold pipe everyday and just can't get enough.

    My name is James and I am an Playbookaholic. There, I said it......first step.

    Nope! No way. SORRY! The Playbook is something new and addiction means the insanity of repeating an action expecting different results. A preposterous notion when applied to the playbook!
    Now, I am off to check for the OS 2.0 update. AGAIN!!!!!

    Thanks for being totally PB honest because that is the first step to the solution. Your family thinks the addiction to PB is bad now...just wait for the OS2 release.....better book a room because the psych wards will be full

    No kidding boys and girls, when OS 2.0 comes out it will be next to impossible to put it down. The result will be a crazy increase in divorce rates.

    My wife has given me an ultimatum... Its me or the Playbook.

    She will be sorely missed.

    Seriously OS 2 isnt even here yet and I love the thing, and cant put it down. Especially with new apps that take the place of apps on my 9850. eBooks, record keeping apps (love the Groovy Notes app), etc. I even sms on it now thanks to the sms bridge app.

    Love it.

    Sadly, my PlayBook is at home right now, missing me (because I forgot to take it to work.) I will have to make up an excuse to go get it. I can't stand the thought of my PlayBook being lonely.

    I was thinking there really should be multiple like buttons, only one so i thanked as well! Had my 16GB stolen so i bought a 64GB for me and a 16Gb to keep the wife quiet (all you do is play with your iPad thing) but of course the second one is just a spare for me!
