Android in April: KitKat gains rapidly

Only a month has passed by and Google has rolled out its statistics on the distribution of the different Android versions. And from what the results show, the Android kitkat seems to be doing quite well with gaining 3.2 points and managing to gain a market share of 8.5%. The three distributors for the Android Jelly bean have had different results as 4.1 dropped 0.9 points but still remained the most widely adopted version and managed to get a market share of 33.5%. 4.2 actually expanded its share by 0.7 points to 18.8%, while 4.3 dropped 0.4 points and is now tied with KitKat at 8.5%.

All those Android versions which had released before the jelly bean have somehow lost ground and the hardest fall was taken by the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich which went down by 0.7 percent points and this was the least expected. Gingerbread on the other hand lost 1.6 points and Froyo dropped another 0.1 points. Honeycomb seems to have the lowest market share of 0.1% and it won’t be long before Google officially announces it as being extinct.

Montreal-based SkyMotion app offers local by-the-minute weather forecasts

Source: Canadian Business Online

TORONTO – There’s not much differentiating most of the weather forecasts available online, which might differ by a degree or two but mostly look the same. But Montreal-based SkyMotion offers a different take on weather forecasting, eschewing a focus on the temperature and instead delivering an educated guess on whether any rain or snow can be expected soon, exactly where you are. The company, which was acquired late last year by U.S.-based weather giant AccuWeather, asks use ...

Premiere: Dark Horses - Saturn Returns

Listen to it now...Dark Horses sound dangerous. Dark, demented rock 'n' roll with a psychedelic twist, they seem - to put it mildly - like the sort of kids who wouldn't be trusted with the scissors during Primary School art lessons. There's that twinkle of dis-obedience in their music, that slight seam of independence which refuses to be crushed. The Brighton group's second al ...

Wednesday Wish List: WeSC

(Another) new favourite camo.Camouflage pieces will always go far on the Wish List, and ones that don’t conform to military requirements – instead merely resembling said patterns – are all the more satisfactory. This WeSC shirt then, with its gravel like, paint splattered esc print, is a definite new favourite. Not exactly Pollock or even a Craig Green, the all over decoration is nonetheless worthy of several rounds of any room. Made of cotton, it’ll treat ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
