Gadget Addiction - A Real Sickness?

Uh oh, Pravda is reporting that gadget addiction is a real affliction, not unlike an addiction to alcohol or gambling. They rather dramatically state that gadget love is ruining families.
As a rule, wives strongly object to their husbands' wishes to buy a new plasma TV-set, a super slim laptop or a recordable DVD player, for instance. Women would rather enjoy new clothes or a week on holiday somewhere in a warm country.
As a rule? So glad they're not making generalizations about what women want. It gets worse.
...people forget about everything else, including food and sex. Gadget addiction can bring a lot of trouble to family couples: a gadget-addicted spouse - usually a man - stops paying enough attention to his wife and even tries to avoid intimacy with her.
Gadget-addicted people have a bouquet of psychological symptoms, such as: euphoria and ecstasy from buying a new gadget, inability to stay away from appliances for long, the feeling of emptiness and depression that develops when a person does not purchase gadgets on a regular basis, disregard for family members and friends. Gadget mania can be harmful to health too: addicts suffer from dryness in the eyes, headaches and sleeping disorder.
There's more but my eyes are all dry, I'm tired, and I have a headache.
From Pravda.
