    IPhone Users: McDonald's Over Pizza Hut



    You can tell a lot about people by tracking their mobile Web searches--like the fact that BlackBerry users like to hunt for low gas prices and iPhone users are Starbucks addicts.

    Boston start-up uLocate Communications says BlackBerry users are more likely to compare gas prices online than other smart-phone owners. IPhone users, meanwhile, are eight times more likely to search for Starbucks locations than users of other smart phones, according to uLocate.

    The data stems from uLocate's location-based services platform, called "WHERE," which runs on Apple's iPhone, Research In Motion's BlackBerrys, Google's Android phones and Palm's Pre. On these handsets, WHERE functions as a portal to local data ranging from weather forecasts to restaurant reviews, movie listings, gas prices and Yellow Pages-type searches.

    I must surf in the cloke of darkness, i don't like Mickey D's nor Starbucks.

    Actually i deleted "Where" a few minutes after using it. My jaw hit the ground when I had an Ad scroll across the screen slowly.
    After that I screamed out loud "They can do that!" It was pretty sweet for an Ad, they did a great job highjacking my phone.
