I've heard of the BlackBerry being called a CrackBerry before, but I've recently been exposed to a use of the BlackBerry that goes beyond the CrackBerry nickname. I was in the washroom just now, and there was a lady in one of the stalls whose cell phone or PDA was buzzing. It was hard to tell at the time which one it was, because it was on vibrate. I remember wondering to myself if she was going to pick up the phone while in the stall. It's weird (and I don't do it), but it's not entirely unheard of. Just as that train of thought was leaving my mind, I heard, *click* *click* *click*. I couldn't believe my ears. The woman in the stall was actually responding to an e-mail on her BlackBerry!!! Thus, the CrapBerry is born. This definitely takes the cake for the day.
