Blackberry Thumbs

It's official. I went to the doctor today and he diagnosed with "Blackberry thumbs".

Dubbed "Blackberry thumb" because of the popularity of that particular model of wireless personal digital assistant (PDA), this repetitive stress injury occurs because these devices rely almost solely on the use of your thumbs for typing, instead of all your fingers. Any device that relies on the thumbs for typing can cause this type of injury because the thumbs simply weren't designed for such use.

Do your thumbs hurt? If you're sending lots of text messages, you may have the trendiest new malady: "BlackBerry thumb."

So if you persist in typing a lot of information with your thumbs, you risk injury. Below I listed a couple of abbrevaitions to make things a little easier on you.
