Introducing the iPhone 5S (Parody)



We all know that the new iPhones are just around the corner. What that means is that it is high time someone created a parody on the new devices' welcome video and uploaded it on YouTube. You see, each time Apple releases its new smartphone or tablet, someone shots a clip that makes fun of either gadget itself, or the fans waiting for the release date, or whatever else.

This year is not an exception - below you can see a short iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C introductory video. People, who look almost just like the actual Apple’s engineers and executives (I’m joking, of course), tell us the story about what do the the letters “S” and “C” mean.

I won’t tell you anything more - watch the video yourself.

iOS Share of Mobile Web Usage Has Fallen 11%



The latest report from NetApplications shows that Apple’s mobile web share has fallen 11% in the last 12 months. The main reason for such fall is probably the mass production of cheap Android smartphones and tablets that become more and more popular in Europe and Asia. Looks like things aren’t so good for the company from Cupertino.

According to survey results released Sunday, iOS' share of Web usage hit an all-time low of 54.9% in August, down 11 percentage points (16.7%) from the 65.9% it held in August 2012. Android, meanwhile, surged to 28.1% from 21% last year, up 7.1 points (34.3%).

Anyway, there’re still some chances for Apple to get out of serious troubles. Yes, I’m now talking about the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C releases as well as about the two new iPads, which are expected to be unveiled this fall.
