Man’s Addiction to Blackberry

leave a comment »

One of my friends showed me this video and it was absolutely hilarious.  This man in the video claimed that he DID NOT have an addiction to his Blackberry, computer, cell phone or any other technical equipment.  A series called “Could you do without” asked him to give up his Blackberry, computer and cell phone and see if he could stand not having it for just 7 days.  Unfortunately, he does not succeed.  He ends up crying over the loss of his blackberry and begs the network to give it back–he could not do it.  I think, if i remember correctly, that he was only able to last about 70 hours or something like that.  He tried things to get his mind off of not having his blackberry, he even attempts to schedule his day in a planner instead of having it in his blackberry and thinks that he”ll be okay with it.  But that is not the case.  This video shows how addicted one can become to technology and how much of their lives rely on things such as blackberry’s or cell phones.
