I found this interesting piece in an AP article talking about watches losing ground to electronic devices. No surprise here, my cell phone/blackberry has replaced my watch for a long time. I still sometimes wear a watch but that’s more due to wanting to look fashionable.
The part I did find interesting is depending on your Blackberry beeps to control your life.
â€œI donâ€™t check my watch anymore. My watch checks me,â€ says Sean MacPhedran, a 27-year-old from Ottawa, Ontario, who works in advertising. Heâ€™s referring to the beeps and vibrations his BlackBerry makes to remind him of his obligations.
â€œOn the one hand, Iâ€™ve become a slave to its beeps,â€ he says. â€œBut on the other hand, it automates a lot of things that I would have to do manually otherwise, like try to remember when Iâ€™m supposed to go learn how to cha-cha or call a client.â€
Wow and I thought it was just me! I jokingly tell my girlfriend the best way to spend time together is to send me a meeting request through Outlook so I can see if I can fit her in.
Anyone else with this issue?
