Single iPhone users

The survey, from dating website Match.com, found that these single iPhone users are 21 times more likely to negatively judge Android users. On the other hand, Android users are 15 times more likely to negatively judge iPhone users. Abby Rodman, a psychotherapist in Boston, said:

We look for so many other ways in which we’re compatible with potential partners, why shouldn’t phones be on the list? Where a person lives, what car they drive, and what they do for a living are all things we weigh before embarking on a relationship. That may be pitiful commentary, but we’re also looking for compatibility in the non-materialistic: political viewpoints, religious convictions, and fundamental ethical values.

Humorously, Mike Neill, a New York-based writer, quips: “In 20 years or less, the question will be: Would you date an Android?”

Yeah, Match.com where lonely iPhone users go to gripe about not getting laid.
The vast majority of smartphone users are on Android, and they typically laugh at Apple clones so I could see how those lonely loser iMatch clones would not like Android users.

Really? If you track it down it leads to no such thing. First of all it’s data from Match.com so already it’s a subset of losers. Follow the link and there is no question about phones and no link to get “more data”. So, you have a minority of ‘losers’ using the less popular of the two operating systems saying what??? No wonder they are on Match.com.
