| | [10-04-2004] E-mails on the go push etiquette limits!

Washington lawyer William Wilheml knows from experience that not everybody loves his BlackBerry as much as he does. |
"I once had a date become apoplectic because we were in the airport terminal before vacation, and I did the one final BlackBerry check," Wilhelm said.
The girlfriend was fed up with a relationship punctuated by Wilhelm fiddling with the wireless device to check hundreds of e-mails a day.
BlackBerrys make e-mail portable, available anytime and almost anywhere. Airline delays become office time. An elevator ride becomes a chance to dash off a reply. A companion's restroom trip at a restaurant provides just enough time to close a deal electronically.
