Intervention: the BlackBerry edition


We haven’t really talked much about this, because we like to keep away from as much fluff (kidding) as possible. But seeing as how this report says BlackBerrys have been the cause of accidents and broken marriages, this may actually be a serious matter. Case and point?

“The Independent on Sunday has learnt that, in one recent case, an employer had to pay substantial damages to a woman who was so distracted by her BlackBerry while driving that she crashed and killed a motorcyclist. In another, a woman took action after putting cleaning fluid on her baby’s nappy instead of baby oil because she was distracted by her BlackBerry.”
