Blackberry Lock-up

By Deane Barker on June 8, 2006

Hotel: Put that ‘CrackBerry’ down, you addict!: There is a way out of your self-imposed information Hell. It’s like a rehab center for information junkies.

BlackBerry addicts have a crack at freedom when they check into one Chicago hotel: the manager will put the communications devices and others like them under lock and key for guests who want a break.

I like how this guy probably mentioned this to one person, who mentioned it to someone else, etc. and now his hotel is in the papers as advertising this “service.” Cheap way to get publicity, anyway.
