iPhone users: pretentious and broke … apparently
From: Bitterwallet.com 05/04/11:
If you’re an iPhone owner, chances are that you’re constantly wiping sweat off it. Sweat that pours from your furrowed brow, from the stress and worry caused by the fact that you’re up to your eyes in DEBT.
Or at least that’s the findings of a new YouGov survey which claims that someone’s salary and financial circumstances can be linked to the phone that they own. If you own an Android-powered phone or a BlackBerry, you are more likely to be earning more than your hovel-dwelling iPhone-brandishing counterparts.
What have we learned from this? That all iPhone owners are flash little twerps who don’t actually have the fiscal substance to be able to back up what they imagine to be a luxury lifestyle. As ever, we welcome your comments – unless they’re idiotic and poorly delivered.
I don’t know how much truth there is in this. At a guess, I’d say it’s probably less than Android users would like to think and more than iPhone users are comfortable admitting. But what do I know?
Well, I know this much: I’m an Android user and generally a big fan of the cute little green robot. My HTC desire never skips a beat and every day I enjoy that warm glow of contentment knowing that I’ve shunned another Apple product and feel all the better for it. (Oh, and I’m a self-proclaimed app-aholic, but then again, who isn’t?).
While we’re on the subject, I also stumbled across a rather trite entry on the usually un-trite futurelawyer – generally a great blog for all legal-techies.
... iPhone versus Android, [-] which phone is better for lawyers? I can tell you the answer right up front; it doesn't matter, because the smartphone you use is a matter of personal taste. Each lawyer has to measure their needs versus the feature set of the phone they are looking at, and, while I prefer Android for a lot of reasons that I will discuss this afternoon, others prefer Apple's iPhone for their own reasons.
Well there ya go. I’m glad we cleared that up.
