According to a survey of 10,000 smartphone users on dating site OK Cupid, Apple heads rocking the iPhone have more sexual partners than Blackberry or Android users. While we here at Unplggd can't possibly confirm or deny those findings, we can tell you that the technology a person surrounds themselves with will definitely tell you a lot about them. Personally, I have one red flag to look out for when I'm visiting a new guy's apartment...

I'm a gaming girl who loves her Nintendo Wii. But if you invite me over and I spy not one, but two game consoles set up to your TV, I'm out the door.

To me, your abundance of gear lets me know that you're really wrapped up in gaming. And it lets me know that we probably won't get along, since I'm a TV junkie and probably won't ever get remote control when we're together.

The tech you've got speaks volumes about you (though we still don't get the correlation between iPhone owners and more sex), and your iPhone could be sending a subtle message about you to your date.

So tell us: Which gadgets give you a glimpse into your new date's personality? Do you have any red gadget flags like I do? Tell us in the comments!
