  • Americans Will Give Up Just About Anything For a Week Except Their iPhone


    Food, air, water, sleep. Oh, yeah, and an iPhone. That's about the complete list of things Americans need to live these days, according to a new survey highlighted by CBS News today.

    Shoes? Don't need 'em. Sex? Don't need it. iPhone? Don't even think about it!

    In what amounts to a telling revelation about our obsession with and dependence upon the iPhone, a national survey conducted by TeleNav shows that 40% of iPhone users would actually prefer to go shoeless for a full week than to spend the same period of time without their cherished Apple-made touchscreen smartphone.

    "The risk of stepping on a rusty nail and contracting tetanus is nothing like the horror of spending a full week without an iPhone," CNET similarly reported both in jest and - to a degree - in reality.

    Incredibly, 83% of iPhone users "would rather be romantically involved with fellow iPhone users."

    As it would appear, in terms of romance, the iPhone is even more important than that too, for at least a solid chunk of iPhone users. A staggering one-third of survey respondents said they would forgo sex for an entire week if it meant being able to retain their iPhones during that period.

    Insert your own joke here.

      I could go a week without sex, but a week without shoes? I would be selling my iphone and buying some shoes, or at least finding a way to strap the thing to my foot..

      And while 40% of iPhone owners would go without shoes for a week, I bet 100% of those 40% would never make that mistake again and would rather put their phone in a meat grinder than go through everyday doings without shoes for a week.
      Lmao

      guys chill with the comments

      wow... some of that is crazy. I wouldn't give up my shoes or other basic necessities but I would be upset if i didn't have it for a week. I definitely would rather be romantically involved with someone that has the iphone as well...lol plus on an off topic note this web site is still screwed up... it says 32 comments and I can only see the first one. Via ipad2

      Who hasn't had a girl that had a razor. Those things owned early 2000s.

      Blackberry chicks are ones that run it like a boss.

      I would give up sex with my old ugly wife for a week, or maybe 2, but not my iphone. But then I would give up my iphone if I can have a sexy chic for a week, I can throw in my ipad too. Anyone?

      What I don't understand is why this study only mentions iPhones. They aren't THAT great. The numbers would probably be very similar if they just replaced it with "go a week without your cell phone"

      Now I you said this launch day of the iPhone 5 99% would of been the outcome.

      I THINK I could go a week without the iPhone. I am married so a week without sex..pfff try weeks.. shoes would be the problem, if I would get to wear socks then sure, but nothing, not a chance. Its to damn hot here to walk without shoes, you try stepping on 140 degree asphalt.
