By the looks of it, the iPad just can't be surpassed when it comes to web usage. Ad network Chitika has released its latest findings and notes that after a slight drop in the traffic generated by Apple's iPad family, it has now increased its lead over the competition...

Look at all these news upon Apple reaching a 2-year stock low under $400. Every time the stock stumbled damage control kicked in, but it's clearly not helping, and the S4 is yet to start to what now seems a record-breaker. And there's the Google I/O with rumored 1080p Nexus tab...

Wheat does stocks have to do with web usage from people who already own the device?

Also Bone I just looked at the stock prices and apple is down under 400, google is way down too, yet much higher than apple at 765. That's still down from the 800+ they were recently at. The attacks at the marathon, and the fertilizer explosion has also affected stocks across the board, though apples decline started in September, these events do cause the ripple effect. Based on sales and customer satisfaction rate...meaning actually buying and keeping your tablet, there's more iPads out there in people's hands than the other tablets. People may simply be using them more to see the current events that are going on. I know I've been using mine a lot more with all the craziness that's happening. By the way, I'm glad they got at least one suspect in the marathon bombing.

That makes sense because iPads have great design, the mini in particular is light and nice, they support the device with optimised apps and the price of the iPads for some reason is starting to look very good, if you realise that Samsung wants 400$ for the 8 inch note and googles marketing with the nexus devices hasn't been that good.

The ipad and all android tablets have some more life left.

Until intel reveals the new generation chips and windows makes the comeback they deserve.

almost ALL ANDROID TABLET USE 3RD PARTY BROWSER and thus didn't detected as tablet device, just wap or web. this web traffic was so bias report on purpose. it is just like now, how many people still using Internet Explorer after they know other 3rd browser can do better on windows. and FOR AN iPAD, iPAD MAKE 3RD PARTY BROWSER HAD LIMITED FUNCTION AND COMPACTIBILITY AS THEIR AUTHORITY OF SUPERIOR TABLET BROWSER. NOT IT UP RAY S!
