Addicted?

Last week, a study of brain scans found that people aren't addicted to their cell phones . . . they're in LOVE with their cell phones. And a new study shows that some people even love their phones MORE than their significant others.





--According to the survey, one in eight people say their partner spends more time using their phone than TALKING to them.





--It also found that women spend an average of 15 hours a day within arm's reach of their phones, and men spend 17 hours a day that close.





--16% of women and 18% of men also sleep with their phones next to them in bed.





--On a night out, people spend an average of 48 minutes on their phones . . . and send an average of three emails, 12 texts, two photos, and up to three Facebook status updates or tweets.





--34% of people admit they text or email during face-to-face conversation.





--And finally, 27% try to keep their phone in visual distance when they're out at dinner, so they can see if they get a new message.
