Overall, the results are pretty clear: Mac users might not actually be smarter than PC users, but they certainly use better English and a larger vocabulary to express more complex thinking.



Yes, indeed Mac users are more stylish and these traits manifest in areas far beyond computing.



Perhaps the next switch campaign should focus on PC users moving to Mac to better themselves and not just their computing environment.

    I just checked. Microsoft Word STILL insists that the only way to spell internet is with a capital i. Its been that way since 98 up to and including 2004.



    On a related note have anyone checked out Mike Matas new app? Pretty spiffy IYAM

    Yes Mike is doing some impressive stuff. He embodies the Mac user spirit. Can't wait to see what Delicious Monster has for us. The cataloging apps sounds very interesting. I wonder if it'll be net enabled.

    Macs don't make people smarter, but the people that choose to use macs are smarter

    Mac users tend to be better educated, but I don't think it means anything, plenty of educated and smart people use windows, Intelligence has nothing to do with it, it is a creative tool, many creative people are smart as an extension of their creativity, others are creative as an extension of their intelligence and intellect.



    It is a left brain vs. right brain thing for the most part.

    macs are expensive. the majority of mac users tend to be from middle class/upper class. can afford better education.



    not surprising

    Here's how I look at it...



    Whether you start off smart or not, a PC will force you to become smarter through trials of complexity and adversity.



    Y'know... "that which does not kill you" and all...



    The Mac on the other hand being so friendly and so serene allows to remain *blissfully ignorant* all the days of your life...





    Cheers!

    I say mac people have better common sense. Just today I found out this girl who owned an ipod for 4 months just learned to adjust the volume. She also said windows is alot easier then Mac.

    Isolated ignorance is everywhere, A girl I went to school with had an iBook, I asked her if it had airport extream, she said whats that? i told her, and she said yea it has the card thingy in it but I don't know how to turn it on.



    NO JOKE



    but her ipod was full and she knew how to adjust the volume...I think...



    moral of the story, even macs arent blond-proof

    Are BMW drivers smarter? No. But they are usually old enough (not to mention the cash) to afford one.

    What I hear from people about we use Mac because we are too dumb to understand computer stuff.....





    What these people forgot to mention is that we are too lazy to do trouble shooting

    You don't realise how hard your post is to read and follow for a non-American.



    I got it, once I said it in my head with an American accent. m.

    Yes. Much, much smarter.



    We're also cleaner, more physically attractive, better in bed and we smell nicer than them.
