Not exactly so kinda sorta then? Do you look down on those Android users as not quite smart enough to be iPhone owning managers and the poor and middle class, and particularly their children, should be embarrassed by their possessions or would RogueDog's opinion be more of an outlier rather than the typical view of an iDevice owner?
EDIT: I'll take your sudden silence as an indication that on further reflection it's a view you might personally not be proud of? I've always had a lot of respect for your opinions even if we sometimes disagree, just as I do for the overwhelming majority of regulars here.
Heavens no. I wouldn’t look down on anyone, for whatever reason others might. But I don’t think I should have to ‘choose between the 2 options’ you present to me. I found RogueDog's opinion to be merely a reflection on what others see, including myself.
There was an article here, subscribing to the fact that iPhone users are better educated than Android users, earning more money, having better jobs and all that. Now I couldn’t find the article so I Googled it (yes, I used Google, but with DDG) First hit:
“They asking for it now”
So I thought: “hey, that’s a auto-corrupt, happens everyone. Let me read scroll down:
“Considering that the most popular apps on the Iphone are games, and with Android, it's customs ROM's, programs, and other "techie" stuff. I think they have it backwards.”
Thinking this other poster must have a limited view (as I probably do a well) I thought I ought to read post #3:
“This will confuse them.... I can't stand chianti, frequently pass wind loudly in public, and could put letters after my name if I felt the need to boast”
Hmm. Perhaps I need more than a few posts. Nope:
“Considering that most iphone users are preteen girls, I would have to disagree.”
You get the picture: this is the wrong site to get any insightful info from. Then again, I won’t ever find a useful site on the subject. 2nd hit was a link to “Android's 'weak gravity' means users drift away to iPhone …”. 3rd one: “iOS users spend more money online than Android users; Study ...”
There shouldn’t be any differentiating factor on education or income based on smartphone usage. Yet, there is the ‘matter of what we see around us’.
When I pick up a friends’ kid from (a higher education) school, all I see is kids as well as their parents use an iPhone. When I pick up a friends’ kid from a lower education school the yard is filled with Android users. I say Android, because there aren’t many BB users out there (still, some) and this might be due to costs of the device. But when I look at the phone deals telcos sell the monthly payments (and the resulting total cost) are pretty much alike, so why do they choose Android?
Whatever the reason is, I don’t know, I just see what I see. But since I move in my own circles this obviously is limited and isn’t a reflection of the world. YWMV.
As for your edit: I popped out for a run and just saw your addition. I do this a lot, posting and closing, which indeed isn't helping to maintain a discussion - sorry about this. And here I go again, off to dinner and probably won't sign in for a few hours...
