Let me start out by saying: I hate BlackBerries. This is, granted, mostly because I wield a Samsung camera phone and wish I could BBM during class–but regardless, my lack of Berry has left me sad and bitter.
In any event, even if I hadn’t already been convinced that these things are addictive toys that slowly take over lives (in effect, Tamagotchi on steroids), and even if I hadn’t noticed that separating a Penn student from her BlackBerry is more difficult than splitting the atom, I’d certainly have taken notice after reading this article.
Yes, ladies and gentleman, a new study has discovered that 35 percent of CrackBerry users–specifically, traveling executives–would pick their phone over their spouse.
No worries, Whartonites. Once you get the details of the divorce ironed out over BBM, there’s always Vegas.
