The company has produced a humorous YouTube video (embedded below) that shows gadget-addicted people blundering into lampposts, pouring scalding coffee on the privates of loved ones while texting a BFF, and participating in water sports while listening to an iPod or saving a virtual world via Gameboy.

Have any funny stories of tech-obsessed co-workers or friends to share? Drop me an email with your thoughts.
