New findings released by Jumptap, a mobile advertising network, reveal that residents of the Southern and Southwestern United States tend to prefer devices running Google’s Android operating system, whereas Apple’s iOS devices are more popular in the Midwest and Northeast.

According to data (PDF) pulled from over 11 billion requests via 83 million unique users on the Jumptap network, Android has held on to its lead over other smartphone makers for another month by sustaining 38% of the overall mobile operating system market in June 2011; a four-point decrease from the previous month. On the other hand, iOS continues to gain ground by increasing its market share from 30.3% in May to 33% in June of 2011. Blackberry remains in third with a reported 22% market share in June 2011.

Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. zoomed to the top of the list of global smartphone makers in the second quarter, blowing past Nokia Corp. and BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Ltd., according to research firm IDC.

Korea’s Samsung made the biggest jump, from No. 4 in the first quarter to No. 2 in the second, on the strength of its Galaxy phones, which run Google Inc.’s Android software. It sold 17.3 million smartphones in the second quarter, up from 10.8 million in the first, IDC said.

Apple rose to No. 1, taking the spot from Nokia, by selling 20.3 million iPhones, up from 18.7 million in the first quarter. That relegated Finland’s Nokia, the long-time leader, to third place. Apple has yet to top Nokia’s high-water mark of 28.1 million phones in a quarter.

Twitter’s Blank Page – @anywhereboosh

Published by pratyushkp on February 23rd, 2011 - in Social, Technology

Twitter is having little trouble in the past days. Many of its users are unwillingly being directed to a page names @anywhereboosh . This is causing enough frustration and complaints are pouring in from across the globe.

Users are being directed to a blank screen and an absurd error message flashes. Although the issue related to the delay in posting tweets was thankfully resolved many are still complaining about being directed to a blank screen. Users have also pointed out that the link for accessing the old twitter and the link for their home page is also being redirected to the blank page.

It was unusually quite in the otherwise fast and noisy blogosphere.

The problem is affecting both the websites and the clients. Some clients are also noticing a cluster of unwanted tweets in bottom of a specific Tweetdeck search. Although the twitter officials say that the problem is being resolved but they are unable to specify a reason. From the looks of it this seems like an ongoing problem.
