David, a financial services manager for Deloittes, spent 8 hours in a car park above a beach when on holiday in Italy as it was the only spot in which he could make mobile contact with his office. They were on a big deal and his virtual presence mandatory.”Where would I be without my Blackberry?” he reflects.
