Your Blackberry or Your Spouse?

A new study of 6,500 traveling executives revealed that 35 percent would choose their Blackberry over their spouse. Of those polled, 87 percent said they bring their devices into the bedroom, 84 percent check their e-mails just before they go to sleep, and 80 percent check them in the morning as soon as they get up. “It can actually ruin relationships,” said Dr. Susan Bartell, a psychologist and relationship expert. “People are so focused on their PDAs, they’re not focusing on what might be going wrong in their relationships.”

In contrast, more than three quarters of those polled say their gadgets give them more quality time with friends and family… and help them enjoy life more.

Do you have a Crackberry addiction? Any tips for those that do?
