  • 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.

      If I could have sex everyday for the rest of my life I'd give up my iPhone. Hands down.

      Psh I was on vacation for a week and half and didn't use my iPhone once. Granted I didn't have good cell service but I didn't use it nonetheless.
