Do you switch on your laptop first thing in the morning when you get out of bed? Or before you get out of bed? Do you check your mobile phone every couple of minutes to see if someone has sent you a text? Is spending an hour cruising Facebook or MySpace your guilty secret? Do you spend so much time plugged into your MP3 player you have forgotten what the outside world sounds like?
These are classic symptoms of an IT addiction. In this week’s ARN Product Wars, we’ve put together a line-up of IT’s usual suspects for gadget and application addiction and pitted them against each other.
The candidates are: Blackberry, Digital Camera, Facebook, GPS, iPhone, Laptop, Mobile Phone, Netbook. The Internet, XBOX 360, Play Station 3, Play Station Portable, WebCam and MySpace.
