For Android users is was 44% and 42% of Blackberry users went on a first date in 2012.

2.) If you’re in the process of interviewing for a new job, use a low voice on your interview. Duke University conducted a study of male CEOs at 792 companies and compared their salaries with the pitch of their voices. The CEOs with deeper voices made more money than those with higher voices. Consider that James Earl Jones has a voice at 85 hertz, while comedian Gilbert Gottfried is at 200 hertz. The median CEO has a 125 hertz voice frequency, earning $3.7 million a year. However, the average salary of a CEO’s with a deeper voice averaged about $187,000 more a year.
