I read only the title and first paragraph, and concluded that the
author should not be publishing anything.

One minor error in the title: It should be "Data show", because "data"
is plural.

Major error in the paragraph: "their is data to back it up now"
"their"?? Really? Also, it should be "are data", not "is data".

Now that I've finished the article (after writing the above", he cites
someone who contradicts his thesis: "Andrew Waber is a market analyst
with Chitika and says it doesn't show iPhone users are smarter than say
Android users, just that college graduates seem to prefer the iPhone."

A better study would be of what phone Mensa members prefer. snicker

Speaking personally, Android (admittedly, I let my Mensa membership lapse
long before I got a smartphone).

Don't blame the writer for the headline. Writers almost never get to
write the headlines for their own stories.

either is acceptable.

http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2012/...s-data-aint-a-
plural/
Most style guides and dictionaries have come to accept the use of the
noun data with either singular or plural verbs, and we hereby join
the majority.

http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/data
In Latin, data is the plural of datum and, historically and in
specialized scientific fields, it is also treated as a plural in
English, taking a plural verb, as in the data were collected and
classified. In modern non-scientific use, however, it is generally
not treated as a plural. Instead, it is treated as a mass noun,
similar to a word like information, which takes a singular verb.
Sentences such as data was collected over a number of years are now
widely accepted in standard English

Major error in the paragraph: "their is data to back it up now"
"their"?? Really? Also, it should be "are data", not "is data".


that's an error.

Now that I've finished the article (after writing the above", he cites
someone who contradicts his thesis: "Andrew Waber is a market analyst
with Chitika and says it doesn't show iPhone users are smarter than say
Android users, just that college graduates seem to prefer the iPhone."

There are many, many, many surveys that "prove" Apple users are
smarter, sexier, better looking, have better jobs, etc. than Android /
Windoze / etc. users. Most of them are complete crap based solely on
the fact that Apple devices / computers "cost more" than the other
makers, therefore buyers are paying more, therefore they have better
jobs, therefore they are more intelligent, etc., etc. Anyone with more
than one braincell knows these things are not necessarily connected.
You can, for example, be a complete ugly dumbass who buys an Apple
device / computer on hire-purchase / rent-to-own terms paying it off
over 10 years.
