Shocker: Men like black phones

Some 'research' just isn't worth it


Now that the Mayo Clinic has settled the question of cell phone safety in hospitals, it's time to turn our attention to research that really matters: What colors do men and women like?

A study commissioned by phone retailer MPhone has surmised that both genders generally like the same models but want different colors. (Stop the presses!) The report also contained the blockbuster finding that "men were twice as likely to buy black phones," according to Gadgets Weblog.

And how reliable is this research? Consider this statement from an MPhone rep: "While we know who is ordering the phones, our data does not indicate who is actually going to be carrying the phone. This may affect our results any number of ways."

Gee, thanks.
