Default "Blackberry Thumb"

Please Login to Remove!

I was surprised to see no threads regarding the USA Today article today.

Where they speak of thumb pain from using Blackberrys, but what surprised me is the picture they used is a Treo!

I realize the "thumb pain" may be the same between devices, but at least they should get the picture to match the article. Dumb on their part. But hey, maybe it's better this way for the Blackberry camp!

Your thoughts?

I think that there over use of anything will cause damage. It makes sense, just not technology.

I remember the days when I had Nintendo thumbs. That training has prevented any injuries thus far. I saw the article and had a good laugh.
