Almost 79% traffic from one device is nothing to sneeze at.

79% of web traffic. Chitika only gets data from websites that have its ads, so its numbers don't include app data.

Nor do they take into account user agent spoofing. Many Android surfers set their various browsers to desktop mode, and so do not register as android in web stats. (My main browser, Dolphin HD, shows up as Safari on a Mac when set to desktop.

Yeah, if they recorded a decline, imagine if they could figure out the devices that are spoofing....probably be a 15% decline at least.

even w/a 15% decrease...the gap is still like the Grand Canyon, so however you slice the pie the biggest piece goes to iPad (according to their data).

No one got it rolling on their first try except Apple... Give M$ credit for a VERY solid first effort instead of always bashing..
