    Philip Elmer-DeWitt on Apple 2.0 reports today on a new survey from shopping website TechBargains.com that says that 91% of mothers who responded to the survey said that they would rather have an iPad than a bunch of flowers, which is what the other 9% went for, given the choice. However, the survey also found that it doesn’t look like many of those iPad-craving moms will actually get their heart’s desire, with 59% of respondents saying that they are not going to spend more than $50 on their moms (which they might just be able to buy an iPad case with), 27% of those polled saying that they intend to give their mother flowers this year, and 33% saying they’re not going to give them anything at all! As DeWitt notes though, the survey does contradict itself a lot, saying that most mothers don’t want their children to spend more than $50 on them for Mothers’ Day, and only 18% are expecting to get a gift that costs more than $250.

    Yeah... Apple is costing me serious $$$ every year now. iPad 2 for Mothers day 2011 and an iPad (3rd Gen) for 2012. At this rate, I can just about budget $700 every year for my April order.

    Doesn't seem like a really accurate survy because the two items being compared aren't really equal in value.
