PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Does Android skew towards a younger demographic? The numbers might surprise you. According to comScore, 52.4% of all Android users are aged 35 years or older. That is five percentage points higher than the iPhone. Near 55% Android tablets users are also older than 35." How is this surprising? Younger people tend to be more brand-conscious, and there's no denying that the iPhone is still perceived as cooler than Android phones. Also note that the cited figures are for the US, Apple's strong home market. I think the figures will look very different for Europe.

I know there is some hate for Apple here but don't hate it's customers. It just so happens that without young people alot of overpriced cr** wouldn't be on the market. That includes high end graphics cards, PC-like game consoles, and anything with HD in the product description. In other words most high end geek stuff wouldn't be viable.

I myself just wish more diverse brands were available to the general public like they are with things like cars and clothing.

It's kind of the opposite for me. I don't hate Apple more than I do any other multinational tech corporation. Heck, I probably hate Samsung more than Apple in some cases, despite currently owning a Galaxy Nexus.

It's the customers I dislike, or rather the "fanboys" to be more accurate. Even when I owned an iPhone (3GS) and complained on a forum or comments section about certain features, I'd get lynched. The same can be said about Android customers.

Seems the new trend this millennium is for people to waver their rights as a paying customer and instead suck on the dicks of multinational corporations they're giving money to. You pay money to the people you're whoring yourself to? Where's the sense in that?!
