A really interesting article has appeared citing the a Survey estimated that T9 Predicitive texting is causing up to 3.8 million UK citizens to be suffering from repetitive stress injury!

The survey was done by Virgin Mobile and showed that in the UK over 93.5 million text messages are sent every day but all this digit action has lead to an explosion in people reporting cases of repetitive strain injury (RSI).

Thirty-eight percent more people suffer from sore wrists and thumbs due to texting than five years ago and 3.8 million people now complain of text-related injuries every year.

The survey for Virgin Mobile found the texting phenomenon shows no sign of slowing. Over 12 percent of the population admit to sending 20 texts per day and 10 percent confess to sending up to 100 texts every day.

So are you in the top 10% ? 

I'd better go now... my fingers hurt ;)
