After reading Brian's rant about his right to use gadgets in inappropriate situations, I came to the realization that most days the very first thing I do in the morning is check email on my cellphone.

I mean, I'm still in bed and my eyes are half open. I don't even process what I'm reading to be quite honest. So why do I do it? I've been conditioned to somehow—it's a robotic, reflexive reaction. But what about you? After the alarm has been turned off, what is the very first "official act" of your day?

If your first act of the day involves another type of gadget, make sure to let us know in the comments. [Image via Flickr/tranchis]
