9 percent of Brits who got an iPad for Christmas have not even used it yet
Given that the iPad is among the most common things to see on a Christmas wish list, it is hard to believe that some people who got one for the holidays have yet to use it. However, that is exactly what the case is in the U.K. according to a recent study conducted by MyVoucherCodes.

If the study is to be believed, a whopping 9 percent of the people in the U.K. who got an iPad this holiday season have not used it yet because they "haven't gotten round to it". Another popular response was because "it isn't fully charged", as ridiculous as it may sound. 

Interestingly, the fraction of people who still have Christmas gifts that they have not used yet stands at 48 percent. And 22 percent of these people say that it was the Amazon Kindle that they got as a gift. No, not the Kindle Fire tablet – the device in question is the Kindle e-book reader that Amazon is selling for $79. Another 14 percent of those respondents say that they haven't touched their new MP3 player yet.

Has anyone of you received a gadget for Christmas that is still collecting dust in some drawer? Feel free to let us know by dropping a comment.

Got a Kindle Touch, Kindle Fire, and iPod Touch in the family this Xmas. They were all the first toys to be played with. But of course, we are not in Britain. lol

And those Android users are still trying to figure out how to sync with iTunes.

Unlike iOS users, Google doesn't force us to use some s**tty program just to load music and movies onto our phones.

You may dislike using iTunes, but that doesn't mean everyone does. It's nice having every thing in one single place, neat, organized, and aesthetically pleasing.

iOS users use the most applications, download more music, download more books and magazines, use the most web data, etc etc. I think your reasoning is a little flawed.
