    Default iPhone Owners Have More Fun


    Well, here's a piece of survey data that will have Apple's marketing people up at night: according to an analysis of online dating profiles, iPhone owners were found to have had (or claimed they had) more sexual partners than Android owners. In particular, by age 30, female iPhone users said they had twice as many partners than their Android-wielding counterparts. It's going to be tough figuring out how to put that in an Apple ad.

    The data geeks at dating site OkCupid decided to do an analysis of what kinds of pictures their customers found attractive. They did one of those "Hot or Not?" type surveys, where users are shown two pictures side by side and asked which they would rather date. They then determined what sorts of pictures people liked the most, tearing into the EXIF metadata of the photos for the kind of camera, time of day the photo was taken, shutter speed, etc. They also discovered, as they crunched the numbers, that they had "data on the number of sexual partners for 9,785 people with smart phones."

    So they did what any data geek would do and began making graphs.

    According to the cross-referenced data in OkCupid's analysis, the average 30 year-old male iPhone user has had sex with ten people, while BlackBerry owners have been with eight. Android owners had only managed six partners by the end of their third decade. Numbers for women were similar, with iPhone-owning females the most sexually successful, racking up an average twelve partners by age 30. The advantage for iPhone owners held up for younger users, too, with BlackBerry and Android owners taking second and third position, respectively, at every age surveyed.

    OkCupid's report on this is unclear about how they figured out who owned which phone. Since the survey was about photos, it's quite possible that what we are looking at here is the numbers for people whose picture was taken by an iPhone, rather than necessarily the owner. It's reasonable to think that many of those are the old arms-length-self-photo shots, but a fair amount have to be pictures taken on someone else's phone. Either way it's kind of a win for iPhone OkCupid people: either they're doing well, or they know someone who is well enough to take their picture.

    sadly, it makes sense.

    Percentage of people that:
    know what an iPhone is: 100%
    know what a BlackBerry is: 90%
    know what Android is: 50%

    Those statistics are completely out of my butt btw, but the general idea applies and follows what might equate to a social life and popularity via the electronic age.
    Really?

    I guess you are the percentage that does not know what Android is since you compare to iPhone. Android is an OS you should compare it to iOS. And just so you know, the recent info is more phones run on Android than iOS now. And this is not pulled out of the butt, so don't underestimate them.
    Search Wikipedia for it Android (operating system) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    If you take the numbers from it, it is exactly opposite to your ranking.

    I think it's because iPhones are a type of status sign. People with iPhones are cool

    I'm not too sure about "clear hard facts" but I'm glad this article helps you get through the day, lol!

    OkCupid's report on this is unclear about how they figured out who owned which phone. Since the survey was about photos, it's quite possible that what we are looking at here is the numbers for people whose picture was taken by an iPhone, rather than necessarily the owner.

    People with iPhones are cool, that's why we can take pictures of any girl without hesitation. (click)Look at how hot and sexy you look on my Retina display... LOL
