  • Android Is Dead, Part 3: The Numbers [View article]
    What security? Security in Android is breached once people go ahead and install non-market stuff, same like when people jailbreak their iPhones so basically it's the same thing. I have my Android phone for 3 years now and I never ever had any security issue or incident.

  • The U.S. patent office rules an Apple (AAPL) patent used in its pinch-to-zoom implementation shouldn't have been granted, boosting Samsung (SSNLF.PK) in its attempt to overturn a $1.05B U.S. jury verdict against it in its global IP war with Apple. The patent was one of six that Samsung was ruled to have breached in the companies' summer trial and is the second of those six to have been preliminarily struck down. [View news story]

    Eating Apple lunch means that more and more people do realize that there is nothing special about iPhone, you can pay 1/2 money and get the same (virtually the same) functionality

    I like this chart a lot, I hope the blue one will go to 100 million and red one will stay there where it is, and that everyday more and more people around the world will be free from Apple.

  • Windows (MSFT) notebook unit sales fell 10% Y/Y on Black Friday, claims NPD, which recently estimated a 24% Y/Y drop for the first month of Windows 8 sales. Windows 8 gear made up 89% of notebook sales and sported an ASP of just $368; touchscreen devices made up only 3% of sales. Mac (AAPL) sales were flat Y/Y while Android (GOOG) tablets saw a 177% increase, though their ASP plunged to $151 from $219 (no doubt thanks to the Kindle Fire/Nexus 7). TV units rose 4%, but revenue fell 6% thanks to falling ASPs. Total consumer electronics sales fell 5.6%. [View news story]
