So Maybe I was Wrong…Over 7 Million iPads Sold in the 4th Quarter of 2010January 19th, 2011 | News,Online & Small Business Resources,shopping,Small Business,Small Business Tips | No Comments »
Just over 9 months ago on this very blog, I proclaimed that the “iPad is iCrap” and wondered aloud why anyone would be so dumb as to purchase one of these new fangled tablet computers. Well, while I still think that, for me, the iPad is a non-essential gadget…I guess 7,330,000 other people in the 4th quarter of 2010 disagreed with me because all of them bought one!
Yes, the iPad IS officially another success story for Apple, and yes it DID probably revolutionize the PC market once again for Apple, and oh yea it IS probably the hottest new gadget in the tech industry since the iPhone and iPad. All of these things may be true but I am happy to say that not a day goes by that I wish I had one!
Another interesting tidbit that I wanted to pass along today that made me realize how massive the Interweb (my fancy name for the Internet) really is: Did you know that 70% of Facebook’s user base reside outside of the United States!?!? Maybe this is just me being naive or maybe it is because I am one of the last Americans to NOT have a Facebook account, but this really shocked me…I mean to the point where I actually read this sentence again to make sure I didn’t read it wrong. For some reason I always assumed that Facebook was a mostly America-centric social application but obviously I was wrong again there too!
