Weekly Poll

I’m in front of a computer during most of the day, with my iPhone to my left and my iPad to my right. When it comes to cruising my favorite social networks, I find myself using my computer for Facebook and Tumblr all the time, but rarely for Twitter. In that case, it’s all about the iPhone and iPad, and not much else. With my wife, she’ll only use Facebook on her iPhone, bar none.

In the process of reviewing apps, I started to wonder how much time I spent on my iPhone. It’s got to be a lot, right? And if that’s the case — which it most certainly is — what do I do the most?

Now before I got my first iPhone I would’ve guessed that talking on the phone would be its primary activity. But now, I’m just not that sure. I spend a ton of time taking pictures and sending messages, plus there’s listening to music and watching videos.

So what about you? What would you guess is the No. 1 thing you do with your iPhone? Let us know in the poll to the right!

There’s been a lot of talk recently about the existence of an “iWatch,” a device that you wear on your wrist that either replaces or supplements your iPhone. It’s the first step in us all becoming Dick Tracy, which is a reference that even I am too young to fully understand.

What’re your thoughts? Would you buy an iWatch or similar device? Let us know in the poll to the right!

It wasn’t until relatively recently that I used my iPhone for an alarm clock. I had debated it for years, but after hearing about people having issues with time zone changes and all that, I just figured that it was best to use the old standby that sat on my dresser. Eventually, I changed my mind and went the iPhone route, and that’s been that.

Recently, however, I’ve thought about how I wake up. Usually it’s with a start, which isn’t the best way to begin your day for sure. I’ve started looking at different alarm clock options, and wondering what our readers use when they want to get out of bed.

So what’s your story? How do you wake up? Let us know in the poll to the right!

Valentine’s Day at my house this year is going to be a little different than in past years. That’s the 36 week mark in my wife’s pregnancy, meaning that she’s officially full term at that point and we’re on baby watch. My gut tells me that means I should get her something special.

Talking to friends about their V-Day plans, I realized that most of them communicate with the same device. They usually buy the same model of iPhone at the same time, and then they’re both using the same device. But that’s not always the case. What about you? Do you and your significant other both have iPhones? Let us know in the poll to the right!

There have been a lot of rumors floating around these past few weeks about a larger iPhone that’s in the mix. It has a 5-inch screen, and is designed to take on the larger form factor phones like Samsung’s Note and so on. For a long time, I discounted those rumors because it didn’t make much sense. But now, I may have a different opinion.

Marco Arment, developer of Instapaper and The Magazine, recently wrote a post about his theories on a 5-inch iPhone, and it makes sense — in a theoretical way, of course. Whether or not this device actually exists is anyone’s guess.

So what’s yours? If a larger iPhone exists, would you buy it? Let us know in the poll to the right!

Although I’ve been known to take a picture or two myself, I find that often the most used camera in my arsenal is my iPhone. It’s not that it’s the best camera I own, or even that it’s the most convenient. It’s just that when something happens, I usually have my iPhone handy before anything else.

What about you? Is your iPhone your primary camera or do you use something else? Let us know in the poll to the right!

My wife is pregnant with our second child, and since we’re just over two months away from the big day, she’s already quite tired of carrying a few extra pounds. The other day she says, “I want to hit the gym after our little girl is born. Hard.” Good for her!

The last time we had gym memberships, we rocked our iPods and considered that enough. But today would we use our iPhones instead?

How about you? Do you use your iPhone to workout or do you use something else? Let us know in the poll to the right!

I’ve got a problem, and it’s headphones. Although the iPhone 5 came with EarPods that are much better than the previous earbuds, I still find myself looking for a nice and comfortable set of headphones. Turns out that I now have a small collection going, with no end in sight. There’s the pair that I use because they have a noise canceling feature, or the ones I toss in a bag because they’re small and convenient. Some I wear in public because they don’t leak sound, others I try to hide because of their cost.

What about you? What kind of headphones do you use with your iPhone? Let us know in the poll to the right!

Being that my job has a lot to do with Apple products, I usually find one or two underneath the tree during the holidays. This year however, it was my wife who found herself with a new iPhone case while I had other types of gifts to open. It even extended out to my other family members, as well all received an iTunes gift card in one denomination or another.
