Honestly, I can’t believe this report. This is one of those moments where, if this is true, a good chunk of people reading this are going to feel like they are completely out of touch with the younger generation. BGR is reporting that, according to a new survey, Apple is no longer cool. In fact, it’s too ‘cool’ to really be cool. The report was done by a marketing group that specializes in youth marketing. They claim that teens are more interested in the Surface tablet and Samsung’s line of Galaxy phones instead of iPads and iPhones.
The Galaxy phones I can kind of see. Samsung is pushing the envelope more than Apple is in regards to phone technology. And if the app ecosystem for Android continues to grow the way it is, Apple might have some stiff competition. But this notion that teens want the surface tablet over the iPad is insane. Seriously, what’re you gonna do with the Surface? Download all 6 apps that are available and play with the kickstand?
