Computerworld answers the age-old question:

-If train A leaves the station at 8:00 am using a pencil and a phone

-And train B comes in late and reads Fark and texts on a Blackberry and has a Palm and a cellphone and two monitors going with multiple RSS feeds

Which one makes your stock options rise above junk-bond status?

If you look across e-mail and social networks, database and phone, the surprise was that overall, IT use is not associated with an increase in speed. In fact, it's associated with slower speed. But we found that heavier IT users are much heavier multitaskers, so over time, they're completing more projects and bringing in more money for the firm.
