Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Mercer Island man caught DWB

As in Driving While Blackberrying. He rear-ended the car in front of him Tuesday, setting off a small chain reaction that didn’t injure anyone seriously.

Cellphones and other devices don’t play as big a role as one might think in local traffic accidents, however. According to our story, drunken driving, fast speeds and drugs play a part in 93.5 percent of all collisions in Washington.

The remaining 6.5 percent results from other causes. No. 5 on that list is talking on a cellphone or using a BlackBerry. Using a hands-free device on a cellphone is No. 10, and operating a laptop is No. 11.
