It’s a dedicated reader indeed who voluntarily conducts a poll in Peirce during the chaos of prime dinner-rush hours.
Luckily for us, that’s exactly what Sarah Krumholz ’13, Lily Bullitt ’13 and Chloe Irwin ’13 did a few nights ago, and they were generous enough to pass their results on to The Thrill.
The three seniors’ survey was born out of a casual conversation about the abundance of iPhones at Kenyon, and, as they explained via email, “We wanted to put some numbers behind the discussion, so we asked everyone sitting in Old Side and New Side Peirce whether or not they had an iPhone.”
The results may surprise you — check them out after the jump!
iPhones in 6:30pm Peirce
New Side — iPhones: 130, non-iPhones: 70
Old Side — iPhones: 69, non-iPhones: 48
Total — iPhones: 199, non-iPhones: 118
The results should provide some good material for the budding social scientists among us — why does New Side appear to have a greater percentage of iPhones than Old Side? What could it mean? Why do the technological overlords at Apple seem to wield such a mysterious power over us as a student body?
Feel free to speculate wildly in the comments.
