Living in the twenty-first century, more and more viruses had attacked our daily life. The recent virus ‘flirting’ around which attack almost everybody regardless of its gender and ages had drive the victim ‘crazy’ by imposing their eyes and fingers to a device which is the main acute of the virus. That little monster is famously known as BlackBerry while the scientific name given to the virus is BB-ADDICTNESS.

But don’t worry; the virus is not a fatal one but it can be such a dangerous one. It is actually is the new revolution of the way communication take place nowadays. It combines the function of a phone and internet and with a simple touch of one device you can be connected to the reality world and also the cyber world. Its existence is meant to make your life easier.

Besides the normal function of a phone should have, BlackBerry offered you a simpler way to fetch new e-mail messages. They just show up like it is a sms received. Besides, the device also delivers your messages in real-time, lets you surf the Web anywhere, keeps your schedule, and keeps you entertained between meetings with a nice game like BrickBreaker or the Mole. So, just what can be wrong with this device if it offers you with all those delights? But bare in mind, a fact that is not so fruitful of BlackBerry is that if you’re not careful, it can take over your life!

The above statement is academically proven by a study done by David Vance, Assistant Professor of Accounting at Rutgers-Camden University, New Jersey and Nada Kakabadse, Professor of Management and Business Research at the United Kingdom’s University of Northampton. It is found that one third of BlackBerry users show signs of addiction “similar to alcoholics”. Well I’m sure it is not good if it can take you as far as at par with the alcoholics. Thus it might just turn this ‘hero’ device becoming a ‘zero’ device.

So why not if we figure out what are some telltale signs you’re a BlackBerry addict? I’ve devised a list that’s designed to poke a little fun at our compulsive behavior and I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a bit of an addict too–but as Jimbo from the Simpsons once said: “Inside every joke is a little kernel of truth”.

So, grab a pen and a piece of paper and tick at the point I listed down here if it hit your nose:

Top Eight Signs You’re a BlackBerry Addict

8. After a cross-country flight you wait for all your new messages to download before you alert loved ones you’re still alive.

7. You try to use BlackBerry keyboard shortcuts in Outlook. (No, you can’t hit the space bar to type “@”)

6. You think the iPhone would be much better if it only had a physical keyboard–and a trackpad or trackball in the middle of the touch screen.

5. Your BlackBerry keeps you regular. Go to the bathroom without it and you’d have to “push” on your own.

4. You joined Facebook just so you could try the BlackBerry applications. (No friends? The “I have a BlackBerry, I’m out of your league” group has 4,409 members.)

3. You’ve learned to drive with your knees.

2. You’ve completely forgotten that blackberry is a fruit.

1. You’re reading this on your….. (need I say more)

If you score more than 5, then you better get some help or just ditch your BlackBerry. Below that, you are all fine and you can just start playing with your trackpad or trackball back.
