Sentence: Mary feels like a communicaptive. She has a Blackberry that she needs for work and a cell that she carries for personal calls, texts & e-mails. If one isn*t beeping at her the other is. Yesterday she finally flipped out and duct taped the two devices together so they could talk to each other while she went skipping down the street like a little girl without a care in the world.

Etymology: communication (the imparting or exchanging of information or news) + captive (a person who has been taken prisoner)
