I, for instance am addicted to RF 2013 to such a degree (knowing its flaws) that I’ve completed 14 seasons and wouldn’t stop till the next rendition rolls out. 15% iPhone owners would trade their sex life for the device! In fact, the patronage to iPhones is backed by an alarming 64% of folks who say they would never survive once parted with their iPhones.
