A survey released today tells us that 94% of people do not consider the iPhone sexier than a movie star.
Halle Berry earned 27% of the “sexiest” vote, Scarlett Johansson 17%, Patrick Dempsey 13%, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter 6%, and the iPhone 6%.
There was some actual news value in the survey as well: turns out younger people’s views on content regulation are more liberal than their elders. 72% of people over the age of 70 supported government regulation of internet content, but only 33% of people aged 18-24 agreed.
And only 11% of people said they would be willing to have a chip implanted in their brains that would let them access the internet with their mind. (Interestingly, non-church-goers and 18-24 year olds were nearly twice as likely to say “I can has chip plz?”.)
Statistics nerds: the frequency data and crosstabs are available on 463 Communications’ website.
