Yes, they all 'own' a wi-fi router and, hence, did all of their shopping from home or "they" traversed over to their local Starbucks for a 'wittle Ad-hoc, java and shopping. People with Androids prefer a more tangible experience and were 'Door-Busting' on Friday (in person) and not huddled in their 'wittle Starbucks comfort-zone.

And, YES, 82% of iFools 'OWNED' by Apple!

Two words 'improved engagement' that doesn't mean anything to you does it?

Only people with android devices went to brick and mortar stores lol, that's comical. What an incredible U.S. Census employee he must be, to come up with that info.

Impressive.

Curious to read what "haters" have to say about these statistics. Especially with the recent release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

I don't understand how this could be a topic that induces hate, rage and activates fanboyism from every other platform. So silly.

Anyway, this is probably an iOS user's response to more lines - they already camped for their idevices, why the hell should they camp for less important items in their lives?

And yet you let a cheap shot that you know would incite some fanboy.

Save your breath next time :)

Save my breath? I didn't speak a word of it!

To the point - I didn't "cheap shot" anybody. I stated a fact, and whoever camps in a line for hours surely means that they love the experience they're going through because they've made such activities an important part of their lives. There is nothing wrong in doing what you love as long as it doesn't hurt anybody else.

Surely you enjoy to latch on to the negative side of things. Live and let live, chap.

Of course, being your typical iPhone user, you didn't comprehend the subject of the article, nor did you read it.

The article was about where most mobile Black Friday shopping was done FROM. In other words, what devices people used to buy Black Friday stuff.

I did rush my comment out as I was getting ready for work, and left out detail / poorly worded my comment. What I generally meant was that the Note 3, being a significantly bigger phone, was just released. Therefore, along with the Note 1 and 2, and many other large screened phones, I'm surprised that there wasn't/isn't much use of them for online shopping.

Even if they were used for such, the Notes aren't out there in nearly the numbers that iOS devices are.

lol well at least you admitted to half the problem, worth some recognition. But the article title is stated as such and was highly misleading, even I thought it meant they sold 4 to 1 vs each other. Crazy Alan F., will find any reason to somehow bias things for Apple. Even the damn pie chart shows "iOS sales" and "Android sales" which is terrible labelling.

I had to read it a few times, both in English and Spanish, translating back and forth 'til it made sense!

Call me stupid, but it sure can be misleading!

Yes, PA, let's give apple's biggest troll, Daniel Dilger more exposure.

If I wanted to read that idiot's pathetic "analysis" I'd read roughlydrafted.

Read his articles and you see a common thread - anything that trashes google or android and he'll post it in the most negative light possible.

Heck he used to trash MS all the time but since they are enemies of Google now, he's on their side.

Dude, at least do the research on that guy, he seems to be requiring mental help according to the popular consensus of him through many peers.

Maybe this just means that people in iOS devices feel more comfortable with throwing their personal information on the internet through a mobile device.

Nawww, I kid.

Google is better at collecting your personal information: reading your emails (Gmail), knowing your social life (Google+), viewing your photos (Picasa/Google+), what you watch (Youtube), what interests you (Search), your credit card details (Wallet)...

Skynet!

Do you know the meaning of the word "sacked"?

Nothing in that article is even remotely true.
