Well over a year ago, I wrote about going cold turkey on my Blackberry. I didn't realize I was a trend-setter. Here's a lead from a story by Jackie Noblett in the Boston Business Journal entitled, "Blackberry Backlash: Reader poll reflects growing discontent with overuse":
There is a budding movement to squish the BlackBerry. Fed up with the constant tip-tapping and impromptu interruptions in staff meetings and conferences, the local business community is lashing back against the device, known in some circles as the "CrackBerry" due to its addictive powers. Some Boston executives have gone so far as banning them outright.
