App User IQ

Are iPhone/iPad users smarter than desktop computer users? The Mac App Store has been live for a couple of weeks now, and many of the review comments defy explanation. Many Mac App Store users seem to be unable (or unwilling) to read the app descriptions, set-up procedures, etc. I’ve seen tonnes of comments (and low ratings) from people who don’t appear to even understand what the app is for. How thick can you get? I’ve seen this a bit in the iOS App Store, but not to the same extent. Which leads me to wonder, are mobile users smarter than computer users still tied to their desktops/laptops?

I hope the nature of Mac App Store reviews improves over time. Ignorant, childish, offensive, and off-topic reviews are a huge turn off (I’m referring to you YouTube).
