Tech Junkies Need A Hit

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One electrifying competition is giving technology addicts the chance to get a hit.

Ciao.com, a site where techies review electronics, is searching for the world’s biggest “electronophile.”

Spokeswoman JulieAnna Little says true electronophiles can’t kick their “unhealthy obsession with all things consumer electric and love gadgets more than people.”

Electronophilia can have effects on one’s family life and love life.

Little says you may be an electronophile if you’ve dipped into your child’s college fund to pimp out your game room, or if your idea of a perfect date is going over recent product releases.

Those who can no longer deny that they’re suffering from electronophilia have until October 31 to get help by submitting a passionate video of themselves reviewing their favorite gadgets.

Winners will be chosen by how many hits and votes their videos get from web surfers, and they’ll be eligible for prizes like an Apple iPod, a Nintendo DS, or a Sony Cybershot.
