July’s Poll: How tech savvy are you?

in Feedback, Poll


The first of the June polls is over, although there are a few more days for the second one.  I’m glad to see that more people are participating, although it is still a really small sample. But the results are kind of interesting.  I asked what missing feature would inspire you to buy a new iPhone 4, and a full half of the responders said that there was no feature missing. For half of them that was because they would never buy an iPhone of any kind.  For the other half the iPhone 4 already has all the features they’re interested in. The half of all responders who wanted a new feature to entice them to get an iPhone 4 all wanted a choice of carrier other than AT&T. One wanted Verizon, one was happy with anyone BUT AT&T, and the remainder wanted their new iPhones to be completely unlocked so they could go to any carrier they wanted.

When the other poll ends, I’ll post again to talk about why people went ahead and ordered their new iPhone 4s.

For July, I’d like to hear how tech savvy you consider yourself. I try to make this blog approachable to everyone, from the tech expert who already knows these products and is looking for a new way to apply them (or to explain how cool they are to his friends), to someone who just got their first computer and is trying to make sense of it and make it work for them instead of against them. So I’d like to hear from you, my readers, about where you fit in the spectrum.

This poll ends with July, so be sure to get your vote in. As always, feel free to comment about new polls you’d like to see, things you’d like to see reviewed, and what you’d like to see here in the blog. Or just give me a call on Google Voice and let me know what you’re thinking about.
