    Since having DROID, I am starting to get worried at myself.

    1. I am browsing while driving. Browsing is too easy on this phone that my eyes is constantly on the phone screen rather than the road. Sooner or later, accident bound to happen.

    2. My hands could not stop meddling with the phone. Even if there is nothing to do on the phone, I will press the lock/unlock button just to wake up the phone. If this persist, some kind of hand disorder is inevitable.

    3. My eyes is stressful. Spend way too much time looking at the screen. I suspected my eyesight is getting bad.

    4. My Attention span is getting short. I rather spend time on the DROID than listening to someone. I can sense that my wife is more unhappy as the days passes...

    Beware of the DROID side effects. Stay away from the phone.

    Droid takes control after purchase.

    Don't fight it.

    Humorous and entertaining read. You can make this point about anything really. Take things in moderation and exercise self control. Be wary of OCD! :D

    I agree, I have been using it a lot with my Car Cradle. Almost got a ticket the other day but luckily the officer was a bit of a tech guy himself.

    Well, actually there is one good side effect.

    I don't mind traffic jam at all so that I can play with my phone. When the traffic light turn orange, I rather stop than make a quick turn.
