Sentence: Mary was so fanatical about her blackberry that her friends were becoming concerned that it was controlling her. They couldn't understand how a grown woman could be so gaga for a gadget. Undoubtedly, she was becoming a cellurabot, unable to think or speak without gazing at the screen. One day a coworker saw her texting furiously. "What are you doing?" she asked. "I'm texting you a question," Mary replied. Her friend grabbed the phone away from her and shouted, "Cellurabot, texts are for kids."

Etymology: (from an old cereal commercial that featured a cartoon rabbit: "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids") cellular: cell phone/cell network + rabid: fanatical, extreme + bot: (short for robot) an infected computer that becomes a zombie under the control of a master computer
