You know you've been using your iPhone too much when...

When reading small print on a brochure, you turn it sides to attempt to make the text more readable in "landscape mode". This results in you feeling dumb.

When your family member hands you a photo and you want to see who is standing in the back ground, you use your fingers to "unpinch" the photo. Your family member looks at you weird.

During the course of conversation, whenever someone makes a reference to how nice it is outside, you feel compelled to open your weather widget and respond with "Yeah it's actually a scorching 94 degrees, with a chance of showers tomorrow".

You can take a picture of someone picking their nose at a stop light, email it to your friend with a caption, text him to alert him of his upcoming email, all before the light turns green.

The word "Widget" excites you.

You can respond to questions simply by playing songs from your playlist. i.e. "Wow is that an iPhone? Can I see?" Queue MC Hammer - Can't touch this.

You can text without looking because you swear you can "feel" the buttons.


Who's next? :)

That's pretty good. Some of those reminded me of how I am with having a DVR for the last 6+ years. I find myself trying to find the pause and rewind buttons on remotes at other people's houses and in hotels. :)

And don't forget, when you begin to type anything, you want to put an "i" in front of it...

I was actually on my laptop the other day and went to touch a link on the screen. Right there I knew I was addicted.

As far as always looking at the weather app, my wife does at least once an hour on her iPhone, like the weather is gonna change lol. The best is when she does it when were outside.

Mine is similar: I keep wanting to two-finger scroll on my trackpad... the wrong way! I keep trying to flick the page up instead of scroll down. :laugh2:

I've found myself trying to tap the labels of the softkeys on the bottom of a regular phone's display instead of tapping the actual keys. It's funny how quickly you get spoiled by the iPhone. :)
