    ....You wake up and the first thing you do is look at your phone, and then at your Wife/Girfriend/Boyfriend..


    .....The loo feels incomplete without your cellphone accompanying you.. Many a times you'll hold it in, just to rush, pick up your phone and then rush back inside...

    ..... deciding on where to eat is not about driving around and spotting a joint, but more about finding the latest restaurant with decent ratings on Zomato.


    .... a meaningful conversation starts with a Facebook check-in and a photo of your food.


    .... You type more on a touchscreen than on a computer/laptop's keyboard.


    ..... You have a chest of drawers for clothes. One drawer is dedicated to accessories, covers, panels, battery packs for your phone, iPad, PMP.


    .... you feel disconnected from the world when your high speed mobile connection dies out.


    ..... 40% battery means Alert and 30% battery means DefCon 3 to you.


    ..... your charging station is more complicated than a spider's web.. Only you know which cable goes where.


    ...... you have a charging station.


    ...... gifts (for yourself and others) mean only one thing to you.. Gadget shopping!



    Feel free to add your own.. These were some I could think of on the fly..

    ...... when you get back home after 10 days at the hostel, and the first thing you do is ask if you had any mail (read gadgets).

    Pron was totally a part of it, but it was more of technology addiction.

    Hey Now.. Pron is Not really an addiction...
    More of a "refined taste" that your bible beaters don't quite understand.
    (and some women view as competition) 0:)

    I am all up for ?#@*&%!^$~ being made more readily available and mainstream.
    But with forever alone, it is not a healthy addiction.

    You become the de facto go-to guy when anyone in your office wants to buy any electronic item or a vehicle.

    Nice thread, my own

    - A laptop with non-removable battery is a big NO.
    - You carry a spare battery for your laptop
    - You "have a spare battery" for your laptop.

    Yep, I've tried it.

    You know you are addicted when you have everything you need, but you wake up everyday and diligently scan the local classifieds for a good hour for something interesting :D
