Pew Research just came out with a survey about technology ownership.

Lots of obvious data: MP3 players are on the way out, rich people have more devices than poor people, and college educated whites have the most computers. Some surprising data: women are bigger gamers than men, at least on consoles.

It says they are percentages, but the numbers don't add to 100, several of the categories more than 100.

also Hispanics are the largest ethnic group, so most gamers are chicas?

color me skeptical

No no, this is adults who own a game console. That just means that there are more single moms who have one in the house compared to single dads.

37 percent of men own a console (and 63 percent don't, but they didn't talk about the 63 percent)

A very interesting read. Probably some urban legend-type stuff involved, but a good little read.

8 Acts Of Rock Star Debauchery That Would Destroy You

It's at Cracked, so, brace yourself.

Sample:

Talking about 'Starship', the airliner that everyone who was anyone partied and debauched on (it had a bar, fireplace, and a built-in organ):

Quote:
For starters, the Allman Brothers climbed aboard to find "Welcome Allman Brothers" written on Starship's [thirty-foot] bar in cocaine.

Don't have a source for this, no idea how they determined a state's favorite brand, and I can't make out Florida, but good for a giggle.

Florida is Bank of America. I think must have something to do with overall profit levels in that particular state. American Airlines' central hub for the whole country is DFW, but there's no way they're anyone's "favorite company" choice.

This was created by Creative Strategies, but I can't find out how.
