Smartphone wars: In US, iPhone is top device, while Android is top OS

Shared by Mystech

March on Android Legion. PS – Coming for your tablets next. 🙂

Nielsen reports on market share for smartphones in the US, with an interesting split between domination for OS and domination by actual device. Google Android is currently the top operating system, at 39 percent, with Apple’s iOS at 28 percent, and the RIM Blackberry at 20 percent. “However, because Apple is the only company manufacturing smartphones with the iOS operating system, it is clearly the top smartphone manufacturer in the United States.” iPhone has 28% of the market.

Shared by Mystech

Portage perhaps, I’d be a bit wary in anything rougher or more extended. Still, got to admire clever design.

Adhoc Folding Canoe (Image courtesy designboom)
By Andrew Liszewski

The Boy Scouts of America’s motto is simple: “Be prepared.” And with this folding canoe strapped to their backs, they’ll certainly be one step closer to that goal – at least when it comes to flash floods. Created by Tsor Design’s Ori Levin, the Adhoc canoe (more like a kayak actually) weighs in at just 4.1 kg and can be collapsed into a backpack-sized package that’s easy to carry. It’s made from carbon fiber for …

Kenton Sorenson Handmade Leather Short Stay Bag

Shared by Mystech

Lovely piece of work… not sure about buying a bag that might cost more than the “short stay” it is designed for though.

Kenton Sorenson designs simple, elegant leather goods in his Wisconsin studio.  His pieces are made from salt-cured, vegetable-tanned leathers from “unbranded male cattle hides raised by American ranchers – a type less than 1% of all available hides.”  Each piece is “cut, oiled, conditioned with beeswax, and hand stitched using a heavy thread prior to the installation of hardware when appropriate.”  Shown above is the Short Stay Bag.  The bag has a padded handle …

Build your own laser guided slingshot

Shared by Mystech
