If you love your wrist, and do not want to be on perpertual painkillers in old age, try and use the PC and proper keyboard.

Re: Growth of PDA injuries a concern for companies

I love it. PDA injuries.

I pulled a tendon in my wrist from to much online porn. Does that constitute a lawsuit for the sites I visit because the sites don't have an adequate warning. j/k, well maybe.

But seriously when will this all end?

My computer didn't come with a "carpal tunnel" warning sticker on it. Yet developed that recently from to much domaining. Cost me $100 bucks to go see a dr. about it. Not to mention the added supplies I had to buy to prevent future occurances because Dell didn't supply me with the proper tools to prevent a "known" cause of computing.

I personally think the sugar companies are next. It was tobacco first, next is the multibillion dollar sugar industry. There's no warning on a can of Dr. Pepper that sugar consumption leads to diabetes, rotten teeth and heart disease. Will they pay for my diabetic shots, false teeth, and artifical heart from years of being addicted to this drug called "sugar"?

hmm, funny, i seldom get wrist pain from using a PC, maybe because i am using an L-shaped workstation - elbow always rested on the table, but always get it when operating on server racks - have any of you tried operating on a rack keyboard and "ball" mouse raise to chest level for 3 hrs?

No, can't say that I have, but I did pull my groin muscle on this new product called the "sex swing" from being pulled the wrong way. Didn't have a warning on it that that could happen either. Couldn't walk straight for a week.

But seriously I only use my Palm Treo to check my emails when I am away, and to check my sites to make sure they are compatible. There is nothing that urgent that can't wait until I get back home and if there is. CALL.
