San Diego Is iPad Friendly
San Diegans love the iPad and other computer tablets, at least that's what a survey conducted for the September issue of Men's Health Magazine.
According to the survey, San Diego ranks as the seventh most-iPad-friendly city in the country.
The leading tablet-friendly cities, from the top were Plano, Texas, San Jose, San Francisco, Boise, Austin, and Oakland, and then San Diego.
The five least iPad-amenable cities were Stockton, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Detroit, Fort Wayne, and in last place was Toledo, Ohio.
It comes as no surprise that the leading cities are home to a few of the largest tech-companies in the country. Plano, for example, is the headquarters for Ericcson, Hewlett Packard, and Siemens. Most of the cities that ranked at the bottom were older, more industrial areas.
