No.
They serve for keeping APPL stock pyramid .
And prevent small share holders like you, of selling, - until Apple make the huge buy-back from the big share holders.

Android users are not a bit affected by who buy more stuff. Apple user should make use of Apple gift card to get more Apple gadgets. Perfect timing to buy.

LoL. This is an article about what OS was used to do the most online shopping and people see it as a victory for one team and a loss for the other. That's just because Android users know there are better online deals on Cyber Monday than Black Friday. Black Friday is an in store day. Those last 2 sentences were completely jokes. Who cares what OS did more mobile shopping. Doesn't prove market share or anything.

Hate to break it to you but it's not 'what OS' it's about what devices were being used, the whole experience brosephine

Hate to break it to me? No you are trying to be smart. And no its not about any specific devices that's why the article only mentions 2 specific devices and that happens only once which happens to be an iPhone and an iPad. Besides an iPod those are the only devices that run iOS. If you are trying to say shopping online is a better experience on an iOS device than on an Android device you are just talking stupid because most of those purchases are bought through the web browser which the experience then would mostly rely on the browser itself not the OS and the only exclusive browser is safari. I know most iOS users use safari but I doubt all are using Safari.

Omg, this could only mean my choice of mobile is not worthy.
Or
I prefer instant gratification of a local purchase over online maybe...
Or
It means I use a PC instead.
Or
It means very little to anyone other then mobile advertisers to whom they gear sales to.
That in fact would make me feel targeted more then I am in my chosen camp.

Regardless, I see ifans chest thumping like this means something important to them, smh.

No they don't, they/we know exactly what the article is stating. We also know you're being typical Snig...rain on any positive apple news in any way shape, or form you can.

There's a difference between being the "source", and being the "target" of 82% of the mobile shopping Snig.

I wasn't raining on anything. It is impressive that Apple's got people in such a money spending mood around their products that they're also compelled to use their devices to spend tons of money.

However, there were clearly at least a few comments made by iFanboys here indicating they thought that the story was about 82 percent of all mobile devices SOLD on Black Friday being iOS devices.

listen Snig, you're going about it the wrong way. Say maybe it's not black friday and it's easier to use numbers while couponing I mean there's no better way to do it.

Really iUsers, iFans, Apple users line up for a 2 years old feautres. Apple tells them it's the latest. How dump is that, comparing it to being rich or poor? I'd rather be poor and have brains.

Is that why even dustbin cleaners own iPhones. And you call it for the rich... lmao. If you wana show off, buy a Vertu or Nokias Arte range phones, not iPhones.....
