Checking e-mail before your morning coffee? You're not alone

Hyperconnectivity is spreading beyond workers who are tethered to smartphones all day and night—families now wake up and get online first thing in the morning. Is yours one of them?

Before I worked for Ars, I had a pretty traditional office job. As part of my daily routine, I got up at 6:30 am, took a shower, made breakfast, and sat down in front of the computer to eat and respond to e-mail before hopping in the car to sit in traffic. It's the "sat down in front of the computer" part that used to take some of my friends by surprise (who responded to personal e-mail before 7 am five years ago?), but that behavior seems to be increasing, with more and more people checking e-mails, text messages, and news online before their first cup of coffee.
