iPhone Owners Hate The Poor More Than Android Owners

PRINCETON, N.J.—(TYDN) The world's first survey into which mobile phone owners hate the poor more concluded late Wednesday that the winners are iPhone owners, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

Android users came in second place to hating the poor. Window's mobile phone owners took third, according to an exhaustive survey of 500,000 cell-phone owners conducted by Princeton University researchers.

"What we have found was that, of mobile phone users, those with iPhones despised the poor more," Princeton statistician Leslie VonStein said in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "This study, overall, shows there's a clear correlation to what type of mobile phone you use and how much you hate the poor."

Analysts, in exclusive interviews with TheYellowDailyNews, said it was the first time researchers have quantified their suspicions that iPhone owners hated the poor more than any other type of mobile phone user.

The survey, however, did not answer the question of why iPhone owners hated the poor more.

Experts unaffiliated with the survey, which had a plus-or-minus error rating of 3 percentage points, offered some explanations.

"Isn't it obvious why iPhone owners hate on the poor more," Smith Barney mobile-phone analyst Clay Fishstein said in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews.

Other analysts weren't so sure and questioned the survey's findings.

"A different survey from Princeton just last week found that Android users hated those infected with ebola more than did iPhone users," Harvard University urban studies professor Riba Lorstein said in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "This just doesn't seem to add up."

About half the world's population lives on less than $2.50 a day and 80 percent under $10 daily.
