The New Carpal Tunnel

Italian researchers say that excessive text messaging may cause acute tendonitis. The study also noted that "37 percent of Italian children are 'cell phone addicts," with "irritability and mood swings" linked to their frequent cell phone use. I know from firsthand experience that the loss of the ability to text message causes me to be cranky--I've got a replacement phone on its way from Cingular today, and hopefully that will resolve my week-long nightmare of feeling disconnected from twixter reality.
