Blackberry Overkill?

While France Telecom (operates under the Orange brand) does not hold any record for employee abuse it seems it is taking the flack for what appear to be a bizarre run of employee suicides. 23 employees committed suicide and 13 more attempted it since the beginning of 2008. A horrible situation for all concerned no doubt.

The situation is being aggravated by the press who have had a run of reports speculating that the root cause of the situation was employees overloaded with Blackberry messages. Now all of us smartphone users probably pay too much attention to our devices but to blame the termination of many lives on them is just bad journalism. Where are the facts? On what did you base your article?
