The folks over on the popular subreddit r/jailbreak recently participated in a survey, offering up their favorite tweaks, themes, and other information. Over 1,200 people participated in the project, and the results offer a small snapshot of jailbreakers on reddit.
For example, of those that participated, only 51 of them claimed to be female, and over 700 fell into the 15-20 years-old age bracket. The most popular tweak, by far, in the group was Activator, followed by f.lux and BiteSMS. We’ve embedded the full results below. Read More

The iPhone has come a long way since it was first introduced in 2007. Now generating more than 30 million sales per quarter, the popular handset has become a large part (over half) of Apple’s business.
With that in mind, we found this infographic of how the iPhone has grown over the years very interesting. Not only does it show the hardware and software changes it’s undergone, but also its increase in sales… Read More

On Wednesday this week, Google unveiled a handful of new products. There’s the second generation Nexus 7 tablet, Android 4.3, and the Chromecast TV dongle. The latter has proved rather popular, selling out in most online stores within the first 72 hours.
The accessory is very similar to the Apple TV, or the Roku box, as it lets you stream Internet content to your television. That content varies, however, depending on which product you go with. So we thought this breakdown of their differences was worth a look… Read More

In my 4 or 5 years of hanging out in the jailbreak community, I’ve met people from all walks of life. Both men and women jailbreak, ranging in ages from 6-60, and they come from all around the world. I can’t imagine trying to determine the ‘average jailbreaker.’
But that’s exactly what Reddit user spiceman54j was hoping to accomplish this weekend when he surveyed Redditors from the r/jailbreak forum. In total, he collected data from nearly 400 jailbreakers, and he’s created an infographic to showcase his findings… Read More

Apple has long been known for its army of loyal followers. They use Macs and iPhones, and swear by them. And they constantly argue with Android and Windows users that their choice of platform is superior to theirs. You know, fanboys.
But there’s more to being an Apple fanboy than just carrying around an iPhone, and scoffing at the competition. So to help separate the real ones from the fakes, the folks over at Mackeeper came up with this ‘How Apple are you?’ infographic… Read More

When you think about Apple’s supply chain, the first—and only, for some—place that comes to mind is China. Images start propagating in the mind of oft-reported impoverished plants with thousands of factory workers building iPhones and iPads. But there’s much more to it.
The truth is, Apple’s supply chain is far more expansive, reaching all the way around the globe. As this new interactive map shows, the company receives components from suppliers, and production support, from the United States, Australia, Brazil and several other places… Read More

When Apple announced the results for its 2012 holiday quarter, the reaction from Wall Street was extremely negative. Despite selling a record 48 million iPhones, and recording a record $54.5 billion in revenue, the company’s stock dropped more than 10% following the news.
A lot of folks have tried to explain the phenomenon—investors are worried about its slowing growth, or its ability to handle stronger competition from the likes of Google and Samsung. But the truth is, Apple is performing better than it ever has, and better than everyone else… Read More

Despite the fact that investors have begun to worry about Apple’s future, the company is still one of the wealthiest in the world. The iPad-maker added another $13 billion to its cash pile last quarter, bringing the total to $137 billion.
And that number will only continue to grow, because Apple doesn’t really spend much money. Maybe a few billion on research and development, and another couple on data centers and other facilities. But not enough to make a dent… Read More

The annual day-after-Thanksgiving sales blitz known as Black Friday is now behind us. We’ll likely see several more deals and discounts over the next month, but the long lines and door busters are gone.
The lines, though, were noticeably shorter this year than they were in 2011, despite the fact that retail sales were up. And that can only mean that more people are doing their holiday shopping online… Read More
