apr 2013 12

Android and iOS smartphone and tablet users spend an average of 2 hours and 38 minutes per day on their devices on Facebook, according to new data from Flurry. These consumers appear to significantly favor applications over the mobile web: 80% of their consumption (or 2 hours and 7 minutes daily) is spent inside apps, per the report, while the remaining 20% (31 minutes) is devoted to the mobile web.

However, when it comes to Internet video, 18- to 24-year-olds spent the most time watching content on their computers.

apr 2013 26

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt has said he finds having to talk to Google Glass out loud to control the interface “the weirdest thing” and that there are gong to the “places where Google Glass are inappropriate.” My own experience of trying out the device, even briefly, confirmed to me that this product simply will not become a mass-market device any time soon.
