I'm severely addicted to my iPhone.

Several years ago, I never thought I'd be one of those "gadget-addicted" freaks. I even remember when Mike & I worked together back in 2000 and he got his first Palm Pilot. I looked over at him with scorn on my face and in my voice and said, "Oh, so you're going to be one of those pretentious assholes in the checkout lane at the grocery store who's screwing around with his palm pilot?"

within a couple weeks of watching Mike use his Palm, my disdain had turned to jealousy and I went out and one-upped him by getting the latest gadget, the Handspring Visor.

Mike's usually ahead of the gadget-race, although I enjoy the occasional brief moment in the lead. I got my iPhone first, but he got a 3g iPhone. I briefly pulled ahead with an iPhone 3gS until I dropped it in a toilet. Now we're neck-in-neck with matching 3g's.

I will eventually win; however, when I become the first to integrate a neural network right into the base of my skull and become the first cyborg in our little group of drinking buddies.

That's my plan, anyway.
