Crackberry

crackberry_hdr2.gif

We’ve all heard of the term “Crackberry”. And it’s termed due to the addictiveness that a Blackberry brings. The clip below shows what one might go through if they were to not have access to their phone, their emails, their net access. The lot! Would you survive?

It brings Dennis Kneal, current Managing Editor of Forbes Magazine to tears. Literally. (For the sake of young or easily offended eyes on this blog…I will reserve my comments on this! But the light words of ‘drama queen’ do spring to mind.)

  1. We all know that using calculators makes us worse at mental arithmetic, so what’s the big deal with Blackberries changing people’s ability to communicate and multi-task? It is why they were invented. I believe that if you don’t want to lose the ability to “remember’ things that are important to you then don’t bother getting one. I also feel that if someone feels that Blackberries makes people ‘worse’ because it’s not right to give up on mental power then they should consider channeling their frustration with the mdoern world into something useful…

    You showed marvellous restraint regarding Dennis Kneal by the way. He says his marketing department are ribbing him that their new campaign should be “Forbes Magazine – edited by cry babies” I can think of much more insulting ways of describing him.
