Apple and the OS marketshare




MacBook Pro

Originally uploaded by the_ml

In the news recently I read that mac laptop sales have take something like 17% or the market. And I think mac desktops have increased 5% or something.

(these stats only show purchasing habits for the past 3 months, but still interesting)

anywho, looking at awstats on my own personal website (which doesn’t get a lot of traffic), I find it interesting that it almost matches what the stats are saying in terms of OS marketshare. I also posted website OS stats from a year before. This looks like clear evidence that apple’s marketing is working (I just got a macpro for work)

Another thing I noticed is that I seem to be getting less traffic this year than last. lol I’m not taking enough photos to drive traffic to my website these days. Either that, or I guess I’ve been using Flickr more so the traffic isn’t showing.
