People Prefer iPhones to Spouses. Yep, Sounds About Right.

CNBC just published a study that more American homes contain Apple products than married couples. Bob, you were right: the times they are a-changin.’ And I guess they always will. Sigh.

Here’s the really sad part, though:  28 percent of iPhone users would rather go a week without seeing their significant other than say buh-bye to their iPhones. Really, people? I was late to the iPhone party, but now that I have one, I get it. They’re awesome. So easy on the eyes. So smart. So helpful. So entertaining! Know what else I can use those adjectives to describe? People. Lovers. Boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, and wives.

Okay, I know, the apps. Words with Friends, Draw Something, Angry Birds. Yes, I wile away too much of my free time tinkering with these addictive times-sucks. But men? They’ve got all kinds of apps. Kisses with wives (or girlfriends!). Cook something (please do). Angry massages (deep tissue rocks). I could go on.

I even have THE HOTTEST iPhone cover by Kate Spade. It’s red, white, gold, and delicious. My current favorite accessor-obsession. The best obsession, though? Arm candy! I would gladly give up “your iPhone case is so hot” for “your man is so hot/sweet/generous/add adjective here.”

Wouldn’t you?
