If you want any proof that Apple fanboys have lost their sense of perspective then look no further than this survey from down under.
More than 15 per cent of Apple fanboys said that they would prefer to give up sex for a weekend rather than go without their shiny toy for 48 hours. A recent survey conducted by Gazelle.com, which is an outfit which buys old iPhones asked 1,000 people who have used the service to trade-in an old device if they'd rather go without sex or iPhone for a weekend.
This isn't the first time smartphone owners admitted they would give up sex over their smartphone. In a related survey by another company, smartphones tied with intimate relationships as two things business professionals said they couldn't live without.
But it gets even worse. More than four percent of Apple fanboys use their iPhone when they are having sex. While it is questionable if an Apple fanboy can actually get a sexual partner, the thought that they would spoil the one chance of losing their virginity by ringing someone while on the job indicates that they are a dying species, at least according to Darwin.
Of course if their partner is also an Apple fanboy they both could be on the blower at once, and not in a good way.
