Study Shows More iPhone Owners Find Gadgets Sexier than College Degree

Consumer electronics buying advice site Retrevo has released the results of a study the company commissioned that found that iPhone owners find "cool gadgets" make a person three times more attractive than a college degree. The data is part of the larger study, which looked to find differences between iPhone and BlackBerry owners.

Other fun iPhone owner facts include 1/3 of iPhone owners have broken up with someone via an e-mail or text message at some point (not necessarily through their iPhones), while one in four has broken up with someone because they spent too much time on their mobile device.

On a possibly related note, one in five have viewed pornography or "adult material" on their iPhone.

For comparison's sake, 22% of BlackBerry owners have broken up with someone via a text or e-mail, and only 17% of BlackBerry owners have broken up with someone for their mobile device addiction. 12% of these corporate titans have viewed adult material on their BlackBerrys.
