Apple’s mobile operating system is once again dominating Google’s operating system when it comes to online shopping.
Adobe, which is tracking online shopping, reports the following: iOS users drove four times as much mobile sales revenue as Android users, 79 and 21 percent respectively.
IBM’s data produced similar findings:
iOS vs. Android: iOS once again led the way in mobile shopping this holiday season, outpacing Android across three key metrics on Black Friday:
Average Order Value: iOS users averaged $121.86 per order compared to $98.07 for Android users, a difference 24.3 percent.•
Online Traffic: iOS traffic accounted for 34.2 percent of total online traffic, more than double that of Android, which drove 15 percent of all online traffic.•
Online Sales: iOS sales accounted for 21.9 percent of total online sales, nearly quadruple that of Android, which drove 5.8 percent of all online sales.
This is important for a few reasons.
For years, people have talked about Apple’s tiny market share when it comes to the phone market. Globally, Apple has 12% of the smartphone market, according to Gartner. Android has 82%. In the US, Apple has 42% of the market, and Android has 52%, according to comScore.
Market share is important because typically in tech, it’s winner-take-all. The more people you have using your platform, the better you will do.
In theory, the more people use Android, the more developers and publishers will tailor their websites and their apps to Android. In theory, Apple’s iPhone will be a second class citizen with second class apps. Eventually people will bail on the iPhone if it’s offering a second class experience.
But, in practice, Android’s market share advantage means nothing because iOS is more popular when it comes to usage, as demonstrated by these shopping data points. If you’re making an app or a website, you want it to work best on iOS because that is where the most lucrative customers are. So, in practice, Apple gets the best apps and the best web experience because that’s what makes sense for companies and developers.
You could argue that this isn’t indicative of usage, but merely demonstrates that iOS users have more money to burn. If that’s the case, it’s good for iOS, too. People with money to burn are an attractive cohort of users for developers and companies.

1. I use #4×1/2 screws instead of the included nails. The nails always work loose over time, leaving the backing pretty much worthless. The screws will stay in for the life of the cabinet, usually. Use the type with a round head and flat underside head. That way they hold the material better without splitting into it. Two packages of 16 screws sell for $2.36 at Home Depot. That’s where I got mine and 32 screws are plenty for one cabinet.

I had given up all hope on finding an honest mechanic until I met these guys last week. I’m tired of the salesman approach when it comes to finding out what’s wrong with your car and what it will need. I read some reviews online prior to bringing my car in and heard they were very honest. I had to get my car inspected and they found something major that needed fixing. They gave me an estimate which was over $800 and wound up getting the work done along with a bunch other things for $773. I made sure to tell them that I really appreciated their honestly and quality work.

Very nice appearance: beveled doors, and the clean, semi-gloss white brightens up my kitchen. The cabinet is sturdy, and roomier than I thought it would be. Although I didn’t find it necessary, I liked that the materials are already included in case the purchaser wishes to anchor the cabinet to the wall against which it will stand.
I know this product is higher than the others, but well worth it. I was very pleased of the outcome. The bottom line is you get what you pay for. I took my time putting it together, because they used images instead of stickers of what goes where. After you are finished, your doors might be crooked slightly. Read the manual carefully, there are 6-way adjustments on the hinges. I got mine perfect before my wife got home to see it. I also got the 32 inch wall cabinet topper to fit on top of it. It comes with 2 metal dowels that fit right on top of the standing cabinet that has predrilled holes for it, perfect.

It’s too early to tell what long-term effects Apple’s new, bigger-screened iPhones—the 6 and the monster-sized 6 Plus—will have on its shaky iPad tablet business. But according to Pocket, the popular service for saving web articles to read later on your phone, the new iPhones are already taking screen time away from iPads.
Specifically, Pocket found:
iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners are reading more on their phones. “Those with the 6 now open 33% more articles and videos inside Pocket than they did with a 5/5S, and those with the 6 Plus open 65% more items than they did with a smaller phone,” Pocket says.•
The larger phones are cannibalizing iPad reading share. Previously, iPhone 5 and 5S users opened about 55% of their Pocket articles on their phone, versus about 45% on a tablet. With the iPhone 6, that changed to 72% of activity on phones. And with the iPhone 6 Plus, it’s about 80%—the same ratio seen among Pocket’s Android population.•
But the iPad is still popular at night. “Regardless of which iPhone they have, users still reach for their iPads around 9pm for some late-night, bedtime reading,” Pocket says.
(See Pocket’s blog for some more interesting observations.)
A few caveats: First, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are brand new, so it’s possible this reflects new-gadget lust more than the long-term trend line. Second, this is one company measuring a subset of its users performing specific activities—primarily reading articles and also watching saved videos. It’s hardly representative of the entire ecosystem. And third, Apple CEO Tim Cook has stated clearly that he’s fine with cannibalizing his own products. He will be especially glad to do so with the iPhone, which is significantly more profitable than the iPad.

Received condition: Overall, all the pieces were in very good condition. Packaging was solid and the cardboard strength was good enough to keep most external protrusions to a minimum.

New research suggests skincare tailored to individuals’ DNA may be the best way to combat the appearance of ageing
Those who believe that beauty is only skin deep may need to think again. For the first time, scientists have gone right into our DNA to develop the most advanced anti-ageing serum ever created.
The new treatment, developed by one of Britain’s leading scientific innovators, is personally tailored to each individual and could revolutionise how women – and maybe even men – approach their daily skincare regime.
It relies on a new microchip that allows the product’s creators to analyse a person’s genetic code within just 30 minutes. Through this, they can discover how fast their body degrades collagen – the structural protein that keeps the skin plump and supple – and their level of antioxidants, which protect against damaging free radicals.
Using this information, they develop a personalised anti-ageing cream to deliver the right amount of collagen and antioxidants to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Clinical trials over 18 months have already suggested that the product, named Geneu (pronounced ‘gene you’), reduces fine lines and wrinkles by up to 30 per cent within just 12 weeks.
The skincare range was developed by Prof Chris Toumazou, Regius Professor at Imperial College, London, who invented the cochlear ear implant, which helped 10,000 deaf children to hear, the artificial pancreas for Type 1 diabetics and the wireless heart monitor.
The range is possible because of his latest invention, a handheld microchip device, which can sequence DNA in 30 minutes. He recently won European Inventor of the Year 2014 for the breakthrough.
Prof Toumazau hopes that by bringing the technology into the consumer arena, it will help the public get used to the idea of DNA checks which will ultimately benefit their health and encourage an era of personalised medicine.
“It’s not really skincare, it’s skin health,” he said. “The skin is the largest organ in the body.”
At Geneu’s New Bond Street clinic in central London, doctors take a cheek swab before isolating the DNA strands and injecting them into the microchip, which is then fed into a sequencing computer. In 30 minutes, the profile is ready and a serum can be created.
Dr Maria Karvela, one of the scientific advisers at Geneu, who administers the test said: “As soon as I heard about Chris and the microchip, I wanted to be part of it. It really is cutting-edge science.”
Most people degrade collagen at an average speed, but …

Brittany Wenger is changing the game when it comes to cancer detection technology — and, at 19, she’s just getting started.

Brittany Wenger is one seriously smart cookie. In 2012, the then-17-year-old submitted her artificial brain technology — which assesses tissue samples for breast cancer — to the Google Science Fair and walked away with the grand prize. It was no wonder: Her invention, which uses a type of computer program called neural networks, can identify complex data patterns and make breast cancer detection calls with 99 percent accuracy. But she’s not stopping there: Brittany hopes to help wipe out cancer completely.
Since she took home the gold two years ago, she’s been named one of Time’s 30 Under 30, given a truly inspiring TED Talk, and launched her app, Cloud4Cancer, which allows doctors to enter their own data and fuel continued cancer research. And did we mention she’s also holding down a full course load at Duke University? Um, yeah.
We recently chatted with Brittany about how she got started, her challenges along the way, and how she balances being a college student with breaking the barriers of cancer diagnostics.
How did you get into computer programming?
When I was in 7th grade I took an elective class on futuristic thinking. When we were assigned our final paper, I decided to write mine on technology of the future. The moment I started researching artificial intelligence and its transcendence into human knowledge, I was inspired. I went out and bought a coding textbook, and taught myself how to code. I remember one of the first projects that I ever worked on was an artificial neural network that taught people how to play soccer.
You’re a self-taught coder who went on to create a potentially game-changing cancer detection tool. How did that happen?
Well, it definitely didn’t happen overnight. I spent over five years working with neural networks, starting with an entire year of research to try and recognize patterns and connect breast cancer to artificial intelligence. I faced a lot of roadblocks along the way, as this was a very complicated program with no predefined solution. I went through thousands of pages of coding and data that was available through public domains, and performed over 7.6 million test trials. I two failed projects before finally succeeding on my third attempt, taking what didn’t work the …
