iPhone and Twitter Widows Common in Geek Relationships

Have You Ever Been (or Made) a Technology Widow?

There's the well-know iPhone widow, when one significant other gets an iPhone and their iPhone-less partner must suffer the injustices of being ignored for a cell phone, and the Kimberly Williams-coined "Twittow" — when one person is left abandoned for obsessive twitter updates.

Tech lovers know all too well that the initial infatuation with a new gadget is so intoxicating that it's easy to neglect your real life human partner. Though my boyfriend will play with his iPhone as much as I will, sometimes I will be on my laptop "Internetting" just a little too long, and he'll bug me to hang out with him instead of in my two-dimensional life.

So tell me, have you ever been or made someone a technology widow?
