Very impressive: iPod Touch Does More Web Traffic Than Windows Phone And BlackBerry Combined

Cult of Mac:

Apple’s iPod business is still worth $5 billion. Here’s an interesting metric to show how big the iPod still is in comparison to other companies. New mobile ad traffic data from Opera Mediaworks suggests that just a single iPod — the iPod touch — accounts for more web traffic than BlackBerry and Windows Phone combined. According to the data, Apple’s iPod touch still accounts for about 3.15% of all global web traffic. That’s just a splash in Apple’s 38.17% web traffic dominance, but compared to traffic from Windows Phones (0.18%) and BlackBerries (1.14%), it might as well be a flood.

That's very impressive from just the iPod Touch. And I have a feeling that the rumored 5.5-inch device from Apple this year, could be the next iPod Touch, and not an iPhone. So these metrics will grow even more if that's true.

I'll agree about this: The end is nigh for Google Glass

Adrian Kingsley-Hughes:

There's no doubt that Google Glass was an interesting project, but it was also a deeply flawed project, and as one its most ardent supporters gives up on it, it's only a matter of time until it joins devices such as the Zune, the Kin, the PlayBook, and the Xoom in tech hell.

I actually agree about this. I did a blog about that recently. Now also their biggest supporter Robert Scoble gives up on them. It would never had succeeded to go mainstream, users don't want to wear glasses all the time. Especially not in public. Wearable technology needs to be something else. Hopefully Apple nails it when they feel ready.
