Telecomaddict

Created by: CanadianAndyCapp

Pronunciation: Tell-eh-kom-add-ikt

Sentence: Such is the addictive and intrusive nature of the personal telecommunications explosion that it seems one cannot travel on public transit, walk in the street, sit in a park, visit a museum or art gallery without being assaulted by the jarring noise of someones cell phone or crackberry and the absolute insistence of the owner to immediately stop whatever they are doing to answer it. These telecomaddicts even get agitated or offensively angry if it is suggested they turn off these electronic devices and soon begin to exhibit classic symptoms that were previously associated with alchohol and drug withdrawal. Perhaps the story "Caves of Steel" is not so far fetched as it appeared when it was first published. THE LUDDITES WERE RIGHT!!!!!!

Etymology: Telecommunication- The subversive intrusion of electronic brainwashing and individual isolation through the disguise of increased freedom of communication. / Addict- The recipient of telecommunication

Blackedoutberry

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: blakd owt berree

Sentence: SONYa Ericsson went into Blackedoutberry mode, when her communicator failed to connect with the Mother ship. In her Qwest for an I-mate, she had gotten out of the Rover, and in one Cingular move had stepped on something Sharp, fell on her Acer, got a Gigabyte on her Vertu and did a Handspring back onto her Mitsubishi spacecraft, just before she ran out of O2. Over the Verizon, she spied a Cricket on a Palm and Samsung the praises of a Nokia No Kiss, NoTel policy before she Motorola'd back to Earth. When she landed safely in the Pacific, all the Siemens gave her a Boost Mobile, so she is now no longer a Virgin Mobile. Wit-DaeWoo! Wit-Daewoo!

Etymology: Blackberry ( a wireless handheld device which supports push email, web browsing, internet faxing, instant messaging, text messaging and other communication services.) & Blacked Out (a momentary loss of consciousness ;the failure of electric power for a general region;darkness resulting from the extinction of lights (as in a city invisible to enemy aircraft);a suspension of radio or tv broadcasting ;partial or total loss of memory)
