    Just found a pretty interesting article on Huffington about the average iPhone user, and their rather unorthodox addiction to their phones.

    iPhone Turns Users Into Junkies, Study Finds


    Anyone guilty of the same things with their Droid?

    Oh for sure, everyone in this forum is probably addicted to the phone, the forum, or both. To say otherwise would be total denial!:)

    There's definitely some recovering Crackberrry Heads here. I was, but kicked the habit. But I'll take this addiction over my former.

    I treat my droid like if i had a baby child. Never leaves my sights cause somebody might kidnap it or do some bodily harm to it.

    Addict under control

    I agree. This is my 1st smartphone, and I am hooked

    . It's taken me almost 3 months to really get the hang of what it can do. The potential and abilities are amazing. Kind of a life changing event...like having your first kid. Everything changes after that...

    Right now I am getting all kinds of constant news feeds, able to do all my normal online stuff without a computer, and using it as a portal to getting back into programming. Fun stuff.

    First phone I have ever had that I would immediately buy another if something happened and I could not get my insurance to kick in. My wife cannot believe I have not talked about some new and upcoming phone yet. I am amazed more and more everyday by this phone. Cult? Not sure, but I will put it against any phone out there.

    Scenario....
    Robbery where I have to give up my Droid or my wife? Hmmmm....I would have to make sure she won't read this before giving my answer....

    beyond fanboy, iphone users lke the droid. I handed this one guy my rooted droid to play with and I was showing him the wifi tethering, live wallpapers, o/c and plus I had smoked glass theme with the 2.1 sense ui app drawer. He was impressed; he goes "I have seen other droids but it was just plain looking. This is the first time I was able to see one with all these feature....its bad@.."

    He could not look at his iphone the same any more lol.

    Its not that its an addiction, because its not like its a Motorola Razor and you can't put it down. This phone (smartphones, I mean) can just do SO MUCH that other phones couldn't do. I'm almost never bored anymore, since there is always something to look at. News. Weather. Funny RSS feeds. Email. Pictures. Web. Text Messaging. Maps. Locational apps. Music. Youtube.

    Hell, just Web and Email is huge. I swear, having this phone really makes you a smarter person. Just the convenience of looking how my investments are doing with 1 push is great. I don't need to log into a computer and type in my password and goto the websiite.. I just press 1 button and get a stock market update.

    Then there are the important updates.. like driving home this morning and saying "Damn, Corey Haim died..."
