I hear you. I have that strange feeling, too. Last week, I took a shower, got ready for work, then sat down in my recliner in my living room, laptop and Blackberry at hand. I read through all my e-mail and read the paper, just like I would have done the first hour or so while at work, but instead I did it from the comfort of my family room. Then I went to work and got right into it right away and was able to get a lot more done that day. But I felt so guilty sitting in my leather recliner working from home.
And, OMG, when I was in Germany, the Blackberry was a godsend. The city manager for one of the cities I cover (I'm a reporter) resigned halfway through my trip. I found out and immediately dispatched an e-mail to him. We corresponded back and forth that day. Later, when my editor e-mailed me about the situation, I told him I had already talked to the city manager and had the situation covered. Sweet.
Then, when I got back from my trip, I didn't have to spend half a day going through my e-mail because I had been sorting through it as it came in while on my trip. That 30 minutes a day of dealing with e-mail saved me so much time when I returned.
Honestly, I have no clue how I managed to function without this thing.
With my Bold, I'm just an e-mail away.
