Do You and Your Honey Rock the Same Tech?

There's a line in the new Jay-Z song "Venus Vs. Mars" that says "Hove's a BlackBerry Bold, shorty is a Sidekick . . ." which got me thinking about couples that differ when it comes to tech love. There's no geek law that says you have to rock the same devices as your partner, but I've noticed most of my friends and their significant others share a common tech alliance (maybe it has something to do with the good old carrier family plan). Do you and your sweetie use the same type of computer or phone?

My gf and i are polar opposites when it comes to all things tech and gadgets. I'm a PC and Nokia (Best phones on the planet!) guy, while she is nuts about Apple. I just hate being dragged into an Apple store every time she sees one. Apart from that, everything is peachy.

My husband and I are fairly similar as far as tech goes. We both used to have PCs, and now we both have Macs. We both recently got iPhones, although he had to convince me to do so (I was, and still am, an avid Blackberry fan). We also both have iPod shuffles. Other than that we can be very different. He tends to go for utility, while I'll choose something because it's pretty haha.

My bf and I both have iPhones (i used to have a blackberry before that and couldn't wait for my contract to expire and he's had the iPhone since the original one came out). We both have macs, him a MacBook Pro and I have a MacBook. But at work we both have to use PC :)

Mixed bag . . . we both have iPhones (oh, how I wanted his iPhone while waiting on my contract with a Blackberry Pearl to end), both have Dell laptops, but at work (we're both teachers) he uses a PC and I am head-over-heels for my iMac (new as of January this year). I'd love to have a MacBook Pro, but it's not in the budget, and he wouldn't be able to help me with problems!

I have a massive gaming PC, he has a modest Mac laptop (he used to have a cruddy Windows laptop that randomly deleted his important assignments and froze all the time). I have an Xbox 360, he has a PS3. However, we both like iPods, we both have Wii's, and we both want/have wanted Blackberry phones.

I've always said I'm in a mixed marriage. I'm Win/G1, he's Mac/iPhone. The glory days were when we were both Sidekick people.
