Last week’s Crackberry shutdown got me thinking once again about how reliant we are on mobile technology. How many important emails were lost or delayed because the system shut down?
What did everyone do for the 24 hours the network was unavailable? Compulsively keep checking to see if it was back up? Simply put it in a drawer and ignore it until the next morning?
Research In Motion’s shutdown might have been the push many Crackberry addicts needed to start their “rehab.” So maybe it was a good thing. Maybe it made people pause and reevaluate their dependence on their Crackberry. Maybe not…
If you’re one of my many readers with a Blackberry, how did the shutdown affect you?
