StatCounter measure just how much Net traffic is generated by the different types of tablet. And Apple are way, way in front of everybody else

But doesn't lot of Android units masquerade their net access,

For this, and other reasons, Apple is far easier to track in such measures as "web traffic". Android devices don't all use the same browser, and are made by a multiplicity of manufacturers.

Yes, but this is easily-understood and quite common. Everybody knows that Android device hardware market penetration and internet usage (in total) far outweighs anything apple will ever achieve. It's just that the apple borg will bastardize and manipulate any stat they can to justify and explain their blind worship of their apple god.

Meh, they both just finally figured out how to make Windows Pocket PC concepts cool and build a big developer base once hardware caught up to make them more portable and not require a stylus. Microsoft had all the ideas.

I gotta hand it to apple for FINALLY breaking the spell and totally one upping windows based phones..... my wife still uses my windows phone, and it does the job, but clunky as hell.

of course no one can really tackle the issue, save a software giant like apple. I'm no apple fan, but glad as hell they broke the mold. They deserve some credit for kicking in m$ teeth. Glad google came along to finish up the job and fill in the gaps where apple was horribly lacking.

canon can use a good kick to the teeth as well. Way too far behind in the firmware area. Give me an android based camera already :D

Nikon and Samsung have those. Nothing like waiting for your camera to boot when a good photo op is happening in front of you.... :p

Yet more Flash vulnerabilities. I really don't understand why Adobe hasn't either fixed Flash or retired it. It's no wonder Apple doesn't let onto it iDevices.

"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Flash is, and always has been, a security vulnerable resource hog. The best thing that could happen would be for it to go away and be replaced by a true standard like mp4. Of course, the web site developers have to be proactive, because as long as major sites continue to use Flash, some people will need it to view them. :(

Flash is supported on everything except the ipad/phone/pod. Android supports it. HTML5 can do a lot of things that previously required Flash but there's still a ton of web site with at least some Flash content and it'll be that way for a long time.

Just use the puffin browser on iPhone or iPad and flash will run just fine.
