Study Shows iPhone Owners Need “Ms. Manners” App for Dating
Apple boasts that “there’s an app for that” but according to a recent study conducted by Retrevo looking into the social and dating behaviours of iPhone owners, there isn’t a little Ms. Manners guide to acceptable social conduct. The study, summarized on Gizmodo, mentions some things that some users may be abhorred about–breaking up with a significant other via SMS, insecurity with a partner who loves a gadget more, and twice as many iPhone users watch adult content on their phones compared to BlackBerry owners:
One in three iPhone owners has texted or emailed their significant other to break up.
One in four iPhone users has broken up with their partner because that person spent too much time on their mobile device.
One in five iPhone owners admits to frequently watching “adult material” on their iPhones. (Twice as many as BlackBerry owners).
One in three iPhone owners say that, if their partner had out-of-date gadgets, it would be a turnoff.
Well, the last one we can kind of understand. When Windows Mobile 7 hits, would you date a companion with Windows Mobile 6.5 or 6.1? That will be so yesteryear!
