White iPhone 5. Had a black 3G and 4 and wanted something different. No regrets. Looks sharp in an Incase clear case.

It may be. But, as nice as the white iPhone may look like (and I really think it does), I cannot convince myself that it looks something manly. I just can't see James Bond using a white iPhone. Or Indiana Jones. Or Rambo. Whatever.

That's super interesting. Statistically speaking, colors and people's preferences for them are completely independent. Of course, this might be a somewhat small and biased sample, but that's still super interesting!

If your manliness is based on the color of your phone then it's pretty shaky to begin with. I've seen many manly guys with white iPhones. Anyway, I think people should get the color they like for whatever reason--it just entertains me when the choice is based on some perceived gender association.

In fact, I was just kidding, and people should not take these gender associations so seriously.

By the way, I have a black iPhone. And a black iPad. But a white MacBook...

Actually, it was an economic decision. As you may remember, back in 2008, the black MacBook was more expensive than the two white models (but all of them were cheaper than the MacBook Pros).

The price of the white MacBook was US$ 2,300. The black one was over US$ 3,000. And the only difference between them, apart from the color, was the size of the HD (the black had 250 GB, and the white had 160 GB)... so I went with the white one.

If you have both then just go for your favourite colour. And if you don't have a favourite colour don't bother voting for anything unless you wanted to.

Always black. I see the poll is split 50/50. Interesting.

Cool, makes sense that guys with white ones hang out with other guys with white ones.
