Do You Wake 'n Gadget?

Illustration for article titled Do You Wake n Gadget?

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?

I actually use a really old PocketPC (Dell Axim X5) as my alarm clock, so often the first thing I do when I wake up is to hit the "snooze for an hour" option on there. I do tend to check my e-mail on my phone (to get status on some of the test automation I run on a daily basis or check for new Blog comments) somewhere in the process of waking up though. Usually I don't do much more than that before I get in to work though (I'm usually out the door and on the way within fifteen minutes of waking up though.)
