    You know you are addicted when you realize that leaving your house is stupid becuase my wifi does not go that far and I cant 1) synk to the leaderboards and 2) cant download new games


    you also know you have a problem when 98% of all your email is apple receipts!


    and lastly --- you know you are addicted to your iphone when you pay more for games than you do on heating your house per month!

    You know you're addicted to the App store when...

    you wake up in the morning wearing your headphones:D

    you get up in the middle of the night to charge your iPod:D

    your credit card bill says nothing but "appletunes"

    you are leaving for a trip, you prepare you iPod before you pack your clothes.

    you look up and see the bus driver saying: "i'm sorry sir but the bus is out of service"

    I brought my iPod Touch for dedicated gaming, I do have a few songs on there which I already owned in iTunes but otherwise it's all games for me.

    when you have ten separate pages of apps on your wish-list, and you have to keep updating the list to accommodate the ones you already bought!

    Wow... there are some hardcore addicts out there.

    You know your an iAddict when:
    1. You check the AppStore more then you check your email.:confused:

    2. You are more interested in finding new games to download then actually playing the games. :eek:

    3. Taking 30 minutes to finish this post because I got distracted by looking for more apps. :p

    "iAddict" might have to use that to describe my condition :)

    You know your an iAddict when you spend more time playing games on your iDevice than your game consoles.

    lol very true for numbers 1 and 2 for me, maybe its cause I've only had my iphone for a short time and I have so much to catch up on but Im addicted!

    And number 2 is especially true since I seen sites that are easy to see when apps are released, updated and price drops I just cant stop looking lol.

    Sadly I have bought Puzzle Quest about more then a week ago and have yet to even play it ( I have played the XBLA version ) cause I have been so busy looking for more games and deals and such.

    ... when you haven't touched your Xbox in over a month.

    ... when you know all the must-have games and devs in the store.

    ... when you know about iPhone game releases but are oblivious to the new Halo game coming out (Halo Wars, guys, Halo Wars ;))

    Edit: Wait, did Halo Wars already come out?

    Edit II: I rest my case.

    ...When you use your laptop as an external battery for your iPod, and nothing else
    ...When you use your Wii as a charger
    ...When the first thing you do every morning is check Appsniper, check for app updates, then Toucharcade
    ...When you have no idea where your once-praised PSP is
