Consumer research firm MyType conducted the study, in which opinions of 20,000 people were analyzed between March and May. The firm’s conclusion was that iPad owners tend to be wealthy, sophisticated, highly educated and disproportionately interested in business and finance, while they scored terribly in the areas of altruism and kindness. In other words, “selfish elites.”

biiigggg suprissseeeeeee..................

also to disagree with the study is a remark at the end of the story. clearly an self centered idiot made it. because for a geek, i am still a very good looking guy. (proven and backed by ladies international)


it is also true that most of us dislike the ipad due to its lack of freedom to do what we please. and that does not necessarily include geeks only.

Without seeing the actual study, there's nothing much to comment on.

The article sure does use "loaded" words a great deal.

I would rather gargle cat urine than give any money to Apple.
