The Agony of ‘BlackBerry Thumb’

Now I’m glad I didn’t get one:

The Agony of ‘BlackBerry Thumb’: “Orthopedists have been treating tennis elbow and repetitive stress wrist injuries for years now, but the advent of handhelds and video games with their tiny keypads is taking its toll on another body part: the thumb.”

Well, not really. I’d like to have one but have utterly no justification for it. Plus, I like my thumbs sans aches.

  1. Doc,
    I believe the medical term for this is “Nintendonitis.” It also has a direct correlation with high amounts of abdominal fat and lack of social skills. Just FYI.
