"In case of China where Xiaomi is leading we found that it had 50% share in the list followed by Samsung Galaxy S4."
What device are you using currently? Which smartphone brand  is your favorite?

Not sure how AnTuTu measured this - I mean honestly, what percentage of Android users in general even know what it is?

Statistics are... Well... :-)

But I'm still happy for +Xiaomi!

Meizu's Flyme OS is also cool.

Don't throw out that PC yet...

"Even if you add together both personal and work-purchased tablets and 2-in-1 devices (which are arguably PCs anyway), the total time spent on tablets is only 9% on average, with smartphones taking up another 13.3%. The remaining 77.7% is spent working on PCs, with desktops representing just over 50% of all time spent on computing devices."

Yes, it is a small sample in the survey, and everyone is different - so here's a thought exercise for anyone reading this - ask yourself, "How much of the work that I do - real work, that puts food on the table - is done on a mobile device?"

I'm sure a few people will be able to answer with something outside of the results above, but I have a feeling that if most people are honest, they will find they're still in line with the results of this small survey.

'Post-flat design'

--

"Here's how Riley defines elements of a post-flat interface:

• Hierarchy defined using size and composition along with color.

• Affordant buttons, forms, and interactive elements.

• Skeuomorphs to represent 1:1 analogs to real-life objects (the curl of an e-book page, for example) in the name of user delight.

• Strong emphasis on content, not ornamentation.

• Beautiful, readable typography."

"So how many phones are still running Android 4.1.1? That's difficult to determine. Although 34.4% of Android devices are running Android Jelly Bean, Google doesn't break out how what percentage of users are on its various versions — 4.1.1 and 4.1.2.

The latest version of Jelly Bean is 4.1.2, which was released in October 2012.

A Google spokesperson confirmed to Bloomberg that there are "millions" of devices running Android 4.1.1."

Millions sounds like a lot of potentially unhappy people to me.

Another point to consider is the intentional attempts (largely driven by the carriers) to lock down devices.  You know - for security.

True. Though carriers don't seem too "caring" where preloaded crapware and very slow updates are concerned :-)

Maybe a simple warning like the one you get when roaming (data) would do... Then again, somebody would sue...

"Steal, don't invent"

Not literally, of course - focus on your own personal end result, rather than tinkering with things that won't directly affect your bottom line, happiness, whatever.

Story
Tagline
I believe that technology should enable us, not enslave us. We have come so far as a species, and yet, we are closer to our ancestors than we realize. We are all "barefoot cyborgs".
Introduction

I believe that technology should enable us, not enslave us, and I believe in using the right tools for the job.

I run a technical communications consulting company and a cyber security consulting company.

Effective. Efficient. Secure.

These are the words by which I live, work and play.

I am a computer hacker (white hat) by passion, a nuclear engineer by trade, and a chemical engineer by training.

I have never stopped learning, and I never shall.

I am married to an amazing woman and have four beautiful children.

Bragging rights
I am a devoted husband and father of four, I work full time as a nuclear engineer *and* I run two consulting businesses, yet I still have time to spare - time is what we make of it.
