    The first stage to acknowledging that you have an addiction is to admit it! Well done :)

    I think everyone who visits these forums has the same problem with one or more of Apple's products.

    Yes. My biggest problem with this addiction is relative to antennagate. I am now a dedicated bar watcher, even while home on WiFi. I have not dropped calls, I get higher up/down speeds than my wife's 3G even with only one bar.

    So what I am getting at is that my addiction to iPhone news and MR specifically has convinced me I have a problem with my phone, even though my only symptom is dropping bars, but not service or calls.

    And I am not trying to hijack this thread. I am merely explaining a specific part of my own personal addiction.

    You mean you don't have all your tabs automatically pop open on those pages? I was like that back in my Internet Explorer days - but I'm recovering now :)

    Oh boy do I have an addiction. I visit this forum, 9to5mac and AppleInsider all the time, especially in the weekends when I've free from work.

    Though I do think it will cool down a bit when I get the damn new iPhone in my hand, at this moment I'm just so psyched about this phone I'll read any article or forum post that contains the letter "i" and the word "phone" in it, and help me god, there're alot of them out there!

    And of course, I'm a fanboy...

    ...better than being a fandroid that's for sure :mad:



    heh :D

    No addiction is healthy, just calm down and stop worrying so much about a phone. Pace yourself

    I think the antenna threads have cool down a bit since the major response they get is "cool story bro" :D

    yup. totally. but it's also 'cause i really have been wanting one, so following all this message board junk is helping me decide. actually, it's fogging my logic and hindering my decision. lol. but it's entertaining none-the-less.

    Yup, I even have a Folder called "Tech News" that I keep all my tech site apps and web links in.

    Engadget, MacRumors, All Things D, TUAW, Macworld UK, Macworld US, MacFormat UK, Mashable, etc.

    I also have the last six issues of MacFormat UK in PDF format, just so there's always some Mac magazine's on my iPhone to read through iBooks.

    Am I a nerd? Yes, so much so that my In-Law's have nicknamed me "Chuck".

    And to top it off, this is my iPhone lock screen ...

    Haha that iPhone lock screen looks like it can be a funny movie front cover because you look like you can be an actor of a funny movie no offenses.

    Funny thing, when I met her she hated technology, now she loves Macs and the iPhone and wants an iPad.
