Rich People Like iPhones, Poor People Like Android


androidA Pew survey found that people making more than $75,000 dollars a year are much more likely to own iPhones. Android phones dominate in every other pay bracket. Congratulations, Apple! You’re the official sponsor of the bourgeoisie.

      edrooneyAfter reading this article, hipsters everywhere will dump their iPhones
      and will instead talk over a set of Campbell soup cans connected by
      fishing line… while wearing top hats.

    As a very wealthy person from a noble family, I have always used iPhones over those other phones meant for commoners.

    lets do the math, for a long time the iPhone was not available on the countries largest carrier, Verizon. So people stuck in contracts who couldn’t afford to buy their way out stayed, and got a Droid, and those with the money bought out and went to the other guy and got the iPhone. Then the iPhone came to Verizon and a lot of the “poor” stayed with what they already knew. 
    I stayed with the Droid, even though when my contract was up it would have been the same price to switch.

    Aren’t Droids cheaper, or at least were in the beginning? The lower tier models came free with a service contract, while iPhones only recently started doing that, right? Isn’t it really that simple?

    I remember when the rich took handfuls of iPhones out of burlap sacks stuffed full and threw them out to the poor people on the streets below! We were all equal that day.

    Over $75k isn’t rich. Maybe it was in the 70’s.

    Phones with android op system are for people who are generally less educated, republican, and have less money. iPhone is the exact opposite. IPhone is the Rolex of phones. Android phones are the Timex of phones.
