Default How Tech Savvy is Your City?

Not where you might expect, according to a survey appearing in the September issue of Men's Health, which hits newsstands Tuesday."</em></p><p><img height="413" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1269897984.usr105634.jpg" width="600" /></p><p>Plano, TX. Not exactly the first city that would have come to mind if I were asked which city came out on tops as the city with the most early tech adopters, but that is exactly what landed as number one. It even beat out San Francisco, which came out at number 3. The criteria was as follows:</p><p><em>"To determine the rankings, editors looked at tablet use based on ad impressions from mobile ad network Chitika, the number of Apple and Best Buy stores per capita, and the percentage of households that own tablets, notebooks or laptops."</em></p><p>If you live in Toledo, OH you may not even know what a tablet is since your city came in dead last. You can see the entire list <a href="http://www.menshealth.com/best-life/ipad-cities?cm_mmc=pr-_-tablet friendly-_-metrogrades-_-mh" target="_blank">here</a>.</p>

I shouldn't complain, my little hamlet came in #10, but "the number of Apple and Best Buy stores per capita"? Come on. All that tells you is were the disposable income is, according to the management of those stores.
