I'm leaving you for my Blackberry.

In July and August 2008, Sheraton Hotels asked StudyLogic to take a survey of how their business customers balance their work and personal lives. One of the areas they investigated was how much people use their PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants, like Blackberries, Palm, etc). The results were surprising:

* 84% say they check their PDA's just before going to bed and as soon as they wake up.

* 85% say they check their PDAs in the middle of the night.

* 80% say they check their e-mail before morning coffee.

* 87% of professionals bring their PDA into the bedroom.

* 35% say if forced to choose, they'd pick their PDA over their spouse (!)

The full press release can be found here:
