Does your significant other wake up to find you Twittering in the middle of the night from your iPhone? Have you been caught playing your DS at the family dinner table? Have you drained your childrenâ€™s college fund to pimp out the family room entertainment center? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may be suffering from electronophilia.
