Boardrooms and Blackberries

I couldn't agree more... Professors David Beatty and J Mark Weber, writing in the Financial Times.

I agree as well! It is also interesting to note that those people in the cell phone study, and I'd imagine these blackberry executives, felt strongly that they were not impaired. They thought they were able to multitask, and the illusion is pretty strong.

The same can be said for laptops with students in the classroom, a problem that is a little more difficult because the students can actually use the laptop for legitimate classroom work, as opposed to a blackberry in a meeting.
