10 April 2013CNET:
Teens have decided that Apple is, like, so over. If you want to be a veritable cooleratus, you want to be seen with a Samsung Galaxy phone in your hand or a Microsoft Surface1 laptoppy tablet stuck under your arm.
This definitive information comes to me courtesy of research performed by Buzz Marketing, as well as three 14-year-olds who tried to rob me of my orange Puma sneakers.
1 Regarding the Surface comment, the significance of the Surface amongst teenagers is so small Munster doesn’t even bother to mention it.
2 Obviously, Munster’s study could be as unreliable as Buzz Marketing’s. The difference is that Munster doesn’t say it is “definitive” and his study matches up with other marketshare signals — the iPhone is successful. Munster also opts not to use demeaning language like “cooleratus”.
