    Very interesting indeed.

    That search tool bar in safari keeps getting more and more valuable with every device sold.  I wonder what Google will have to pony up next time their contract comes round for renewal.  Reports had it at $100m in mid 2010 if I remember it correctly.  Could well be double that this year…  oh and lets not forget, the cash Apple is paid by Google is pure profit as there is absolutely no cost involved in assuring Google is the default search engine for safari.

    January 2011 web share percentages

    Windows   89.7
    Mac 5.25
    iOS 2.05
    Linux 0.95
    Java ME 0.81
    Android 0.49
    Symbian 0.28
    Blackberry 0.12
    Windows Mobile 0.03

    Surprising to me, Java ME.  Who uses it.  Also, Blackberry and the rest are as low as they are.

    I categorize the miniscule rows such as FreeBSD as “enthusiasts”  (geeks, innovators, experimenters, rebels).  There will always be some of those and that is a good thing.

    Windows Mobile, Palm, WebTV ?  Either they are circling the drain or they will arise from the ashes.

    Most of my information gathering via of the iPad and iPhone is performed through apps. How might the heavy use of apps versus Web searches or Web browsing impact these results?

    If a computer’s identity is muddled, then double counting will occur.  (not a fully thought out post, but here it is)

    1. cookies.  The most kosher way of identification—if one only uses one app.
    2. web bugs
    3. ip tracking
    4. machine ID

    I doubt surveys or Neilsen methods are used.

    As long as the methodology and technology surveyed remains fairly stable, then numbers have some measure of reliablity—> of the trend.

    There is probably a good method for measuring increases in web share and iOS sales.  Go back 3 and 6 months, find out total iOS sales and total iOS web share.  It is likely that over 80, even 90 % of all iOS devices sold are still in use.    So, total iOS devices sold is akin to total iOS market base.

    In another thread, dan asks when/if iPad revenue will surpass iPhone revenue.

    For the sake of simplicity, I will assume that revenue from 1 iPad = revenue from 1 iPhone.

    iPhone sales are 16-18-20 million in recent and current quarter projections.  Looks pretty linear to me.

    iPad sales are 3.2, 4.2 and 7.33.  The 3.2 is an anomaly because it was initial ramp-up.  The 4 and 7 are the key.  Guidance/estimates for the current quarter Q2 is somewhere between 5.5 and 7.2.

    I can’t remember off the top of my head the projections for 2011, but color me pessimistic for iPads to surpass iPhone revenue until 2012.

    I asked. Dan answered June qtr. 2011. I tend to agree with your estimation, but I won’t mind if Dan turns out to be right.

    This must be how Archie Manning feels when he sees Peyton and Eli compete against each other. Root hard for both. Go iPad! Go iPhone! (yeah, I know they’re not really competing on the same playing field)

    Some web stats of a site that I manage that gets a decent amount of visits. It’s University related so that probably skews Mac numbers. Did Feb/Jan and Feb/Aug. comparisons. Feb/Jan is the “older” image.
