iPads Fail to Boost Attractiveness to Opposite Sex

It appears that flaunting an iPad might not be the ultimate ice-breaker or attractor that some might hope, according to findings from Retrevo’s Gadgetology Report. This survey revealed that observing someone with an iPad does not score as highly on the attractiveness meter as one might think, especially when compared to the simple act of reading a book.

Indeed, only 36% of men find women with iPads appealing, whereas 42% prefer women who indulge in reading books. Conversely, 29% of women find men with iPads attractive, slightly less than the 30% who favor men who are book readers.

It seems that traditional books are here to stay, despite the rising popularity of the iPad.

With the romantic pressures of Valentine’s Day on the horizon, it might be wise to think outside the box to woo that special someone. Perhaps crafting an edible iPhone cake, whipping up some iCupcakes, or even a chocolate-covered iPad could be more effective.
