    Piper's Survey

    Did you guys read Piper Jaffray's piece last night on teenager preferences for AAPL over Android (or any lesser products)?

    I have four kids aged 19-23, all either graduated or attending private colleges. All grew up with iPods; all have Macbook Pros (the oldest two on their second ones); we have two iPads amongst us, we have 2 each of i4, i4s, and i5 (and 4 retired i3s in case one breaks), and all the kids want the iPad mini for Christmas. My kids advise that ALL of their friends either have an iPad and iPhone or plan to get them as their next Apple tool... and our 60" Sony tv will be going to the lakehouse if AAPL is coming with a special big television next year. These things represent discretionary spending, but in large measure, they are also needed tools in accomplishing, ambitious minds in our time. My kids will tell you that everyone with Android products, now including the cheesy looking and feeling Galaxy 3, wishes they had the AAPL alternative. AAPL has a long runway ahead...
