News You Can't Use: E-Mail Addiction

We all know you love your CrackBerry, but there's such a thing as too much contact.

New research from Osterman and the report "Mobile Messaging Market Trends" has revealed people use their mobile devices nearly 24-7.

Consider asking your employees to turn off their phones ... because otherwise, this is what they'll do:
  • 94% send e-mail or text messages on work nights or weekends
  • 96% take their phones on vacation
  • 41% have sent e-mail on a commercial flight while the plane is in the air
  • 77% have sent message while driving a moving car
  • 79% have sent messages in the bathroom
  • 11% have sent messages or answered calls while engaged in "intimate acts"
Um, ew?
