text messaging

This isn't much of a problem yet here in the States, which is still largely oblivious to text messaging (at least in comparison to Europe and Asia), but doctors in text-crazy Singapore are starting to notice more and more patients with repetitive stress injuries to their thumbs largely brought on by tapping out messages dozens or even hundreds of times a day (not that sitting at a desk with a mouse is any better for you). Every text message brings us one step closer to incapacitation.
