Less than 2% of all Android devices are running Google’s latest operating system – almost three months after it was launched.
Phone manufacturers have long been criticised for not bringing Android updates to their devices in a timely manner.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was unveiled in July, but is installed on 1.8% of Android devices, according to Google’s stats.
More than 55% are still running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, just under two years after its launch.
The stats are based on the devices which accessed Google’s Play store over the last 14 days.
Several key Android devices, including the Samsung Galaxy SIII, are yet to receive upgrades to Jelly Bean.
Samsung has promised to roll out Jelly Bean to the UK at the start of October, and availability is expected imminently.

It’s official: After months of speculation, Microsoft has set an official release date for Windows 8, its first update to the Windows operating system in almost three years.
After teasing that Windows 8 would be available toward the end of October, Windows President Steven Sinofsky officially announced that the next-generation of Windows will be released on October 26. That’s when you’ll be able to download it to your PC or purchase a new computer with Windows 8, according to a post on the official Windows Team Blog.
Microsoft had previously announced that an upgrade from Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 will cost $40 for a digital-only download.

For about five years now, the question for smartphone buyers has been a classic either/or: “Android or iPhone?” Answering that question is more difficult than ever, thanks to large advances in Android, as well as the emergence of a third viable option: Microsoft’s beautiful Windows Phone OS.
This week, we’ll attempt to break down your three options, looking at each operating system’s greatest strengths and weaknesses. Which one you choose should depend largely on how you use your phone.
For the first part of this comparison, let’s look at the iPhone and the iOS operating system. The most oft-repeated (and spot-on) description of the iPhone and its operating system is that Apple knows what you want and gives it to you and doesn’t let you change it; you can’t really alter or customize the experience because — well, why would you want to?

The Apple inspirational note left of the desk of Instagram user “M” and discovered by New York Times columnist Nick Bilton, sums what it means to be an Apple employee.
Basically, “Team Apple! F**k yeah!”
The Instagrammer who posted the photo of the note included these words: “What greets you on your first day at Apple. I’ve had this taped to my dresser for two years. Words to live by.”
The letter left on the desk of new Apple hires reads as follows, according to “M’s” image:
There’s work and there’s your life’s work.

More young people would want to work for Google than any other company. Apple is the the second most popular company, according to a survey done by Universum.
This makes complete sense. Google is ranked as the 4th best company to work for by CNN Money. In a similar list by Glassdoor.com, Google comes in at No. 5 and Apple at No. 10 for best places to work.
So where did the employees at Google and Apple go to college?
See the seven schools that are the most common universities for Google and Apple employees to have attended:

After months of talk, Apple finally announced the release of its latest tablet device at an event in San Francisco, Calif. on March 7.
World, meet the new iPad. (That’ right, “iPad.” Not iPad 3, not iPad HD, not iPad 2X — just iPad.)
While the device doesn’t look too different from its predecessor on the outside, like the iPhone 4S before it, the differences are mainly internal. Share your thoughts in the comments below!
