As a long-standing and dedicated Mac user, you can understand how this article from CNet caught my attention right away. It reports on a study done by Nielsen/NetRatings which basically says Mac users are smarter than PC users. Here’s a couple of main point from that report:
- 70.2 percent of Mac users online have a college degree, compared to 54.2 percent of all Web surfers.
- Mac users are 58 percent more likely than the general online population to build their own website.
- 8.2 percent of Americans who surf the Web at home use a Mac, even though Apple’s total computer sales amount to less than 5 percent of the overall US PC market.
I’m sure the study is (to put it bluntly) complete bullsh*t. In any case, it’s still very amusing and something kind of neat to show off to all of you PC users out there. Now don’t get me wrong. PC’s have their place. I own a PC, I love my PC, and for me, I simply need both my Mac and my PC to live in perfect harmony.
To conclude, I’d like to apologize to all of the PC users out there who couldn’t comprehend what I just talked about because I used words that were longer than 4 characters. I’m truly sorry.
