Teens (still) ❤️ iPhone
Apple's smartphone slays the competition yet again.
When a new survey declared that 87% of U.S. teens own an iPhone, I thought there was some sort of error. That’s just too lopsided of a victory over Android, I figured.
Instead, I was just completely wrong — Apple’s smartphone has been dominating the teen market that way for years. And that’s not the only bright spot for Apple’s future. Young people also love Apple Watch.
However, despite Apple’s clear hardware advantage, a couple of Cupertino’s highest-profile offerings don’t seem to be catching on with teens. Read our top post to see all the winners and losers.

The oddly named 3inus Kebohub EE01 sounds like a pretty killer keyboard, and it doubles as a USB hub. (Actually, maybe the name’s not that weird.) Read our review for more info.

Big tech cutting back on silly in-office perks is good. No one actually cares about those (literally never once used ping pong tables etc in 7 years at FANG, just went to work and shipped). Pros want cool projects, appropriate comp, good management. Enough monkey business...

One more thing ...
I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer, should learn a computer language, because it teaches you how to think. It’s like going to law school. I don’t think anybody should be a lawyer, but I think going to law school would actually be useful ‘cause it teaches you how to think in a certain way.
What kind of phone did you use as a teen?
