Infographic Love

Every now and then, something pops up that’s kind of tangentially related to the whole relationship thing.

This is one of those times.

Shane Snow, writer and artist, produced a nice little infographic over at Gizmodo that touches on a very important issue: technology and our relationships. In this case, the near-ubiquitous iPhone.
