How Tech Savvy is Your City?

"Where do early adopters of consumer tech congregate in the U.S.? Not where you might expect, according to a survey appearing in the September issue of Men's Health, which hits newsstands Tuesday."

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:

"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."

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 here.

"I have the greatest respect for the men and women behind Apple's tech support. Despite having one of the toughest jobs in the industry, they've always been extremely efficient and courteous in solving my own problems."

And the subscribers to Consumer Reports apparently agree with your sentiments, ranking Apple number one in their survey that rated problems solved, phone waits, phone staff and online support. Approximately 3,700 subscribers surveyed in laptop and also desktop support ranked Apple tops in each. The laptop score was 86 out of 100, and for desktop they scored 87 out of 100. These are up from last years numbers of 84 and 81 respectively.

"Apple CEO Steve Jobs has been named the most influential individual in the global technology industry, topping the silicon.com 2009 Agenda Setter's list."

Jobs was last on top of this list in 2003, and is the only person to hit the number one spot twice during the 10-year life of this list. Others include Evan Williams from Twitter, Eric Schmidt of Google, Larry Ellison of Oracle and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook.

The list is voted on by an "expert panel" that decides the 50 people that have the move influence on the IT industry worldwide.
