43% of E-Mail Users Sleep With Their Cell Phones
Yes, this means people are sleeping with their Blackberries, iPhones, and Treos. The gender breakdown isn't terribly surprising, either - turns out men are more likely to check their e-mail nocturnally (44% vs. 36%). The stats get even more frightening when you consider self-confessed e-mail addicts: turns out sixty-three percent of them have admitted to checking e-mail in the middle of the night.
And what's up with Houston? Turns out residents of that balmy town are the most likely to have checked their e-mail instead of grabbing a midnight snack, at 47%. Bostonians clearly have something else to do, as only 30% of them are likely to see what's in their inboxes at 2am.
So when you're wondering what your loved one is doing in the middle of the night, look for that tell-tale backlit LED glow. He or she is just reading some spam.
