Wired - 24/7

I returned to the office today with a little surprise vibrating on my desk. Something I've dreaded and never liked touching. A Blackberry. The office decided it's time for us "worker bees" be connected to the Mother Ship 24/7.

I like to think I have some knowledge of technology but I've avoided the affectionately nicknamed "Crackberry" (for those of you who don't know - it's called this because it's addictive). The positive is that it's a phone, email, Internet, AIM and organizer (among other things) and can be used for personal use. I no longer need to haul my PDA, 2 cell phones and laptop. I just can't figure out how to turn it off.
