New technology and making better use of "dead time"

According to a survey by T-Mobile, British workers are not only keen on being liberated from their desks, they also want to gain control of "dead time" spent commuting, i.e. free up time for their private lives. The key to being liberated from losing dead time is said to be "mobile working" - or doing work whilst travelling. However, the gadget seen to be at the heart of working while you commute is the BlackBerry - a handheld wireless device providing e-mail, telephone, text messaging and web browsing and other wireless data access. A further advantage of making use of commuter time is that it may alleviate daily stress and better manage workloads, such as readings and responding to emails that previously could only be dealt with in the office environment. For further details see the T-Mobile press release.
