Denizens of Washington, D.C., are the most addicted, but more Atlantans do it in church. A new 20-city survey on “e-mail addiction,” released by America Online, said the nation’s capital is the most afflicted—no surprise to anyone who’s witnessed that city’s “crackberry” epidemic.
But Atlantans led the way in checking e-mail in church, with 22 percent confessing to peeking at a portable device during services, according to the AOL survey.
The poll, conducted online, included 4,025 respondents 13 and older from 20 cities around the country. Responses were collected June 7-19.
