You know you've got a problem when you're texting your girlfriend while you're out to dinner with your boyfriend who's on his iPhone e-mail his Fantasy Football league commissioner (not to mention your server's late bringing your food because he's checking Facebook). We get it, those tiny glowing screens are addicting, so much so that sometimes it's easy to forget there's actual life going on around us. If you're nodding your head as you read this (on your blackberry in line to buy groceries??), you might pick up Hamlet's Blackberry ($17), an interesting read that looks to the uncluttered minds of Plato, Shakespeare and Thoreau for insight on living a balanced life in the midst of a technological inundation.
