It is a very valid concern that people truly can’t live without their always on email connection. It wasn’t till recently that I couldn’t be away from my business email for more than a short time. That kind of constant need to be in communication with the whole world is what has one Chicago area Sheraton hotel manager wanting to help detox blackberry users. Apparently he personally quit cold turkey and offers a similiar experience to his guests. It’s not a bad idea to take a working vacation from your little always on friend. If you are reading this and have a Blackberry, turn it off for 30 minutes. C’mon, I’m just trying to help.
