Next time you’re out having dinner with your friends or loved ones, keep track of how long you can go without checking Facebook, Twitter or your email. Can you go the entire dinner without sneaking in a peek at your mobile phone under the table?

If not, then you’re addicted to mobile technology … and you’re not alone (iPhone users are especially addicted):

  1. That's assuming one is getting sex on at least a weekly basis. If not, giving it up would be pretty damn easy.

  2. Only 5% of BlackBerry users check into their business using their phone? Given many companies hand out BlackBerries primarily for the purpose of checking their internal email when on the move…

    • It says "check into businesses", not "check into their business". I'm not entirely sure what the former means, but I don't believe it's what you are thinking.

  3. 28% of iPhone users would give up their significant others than their phone? Seriously, I absolutely love my smartphone but I love my gf way more. If you would be willing to go a week without seeing him/her you need to.. well you need to get a significant other.

    You cant have sex with your phone……..yet.

  4. Well of course most people would rather give up alcohol than their phone for a week. If you can't go a week without alcohol, you're probably an alcoholic.
