Apple Fans Outspent Androiders by 25% on Thanksgiving

In a report that we posted a month ago we covered CEO of Cheezburger Ben Huh talking about how Apple owns the market's mind share because they've become the platform for the creative class. This flies in the face of the fact that the Android operating system dwarfs iOS in pure market stats. But it's not just about "mind share" it's also about Apple customers spending more money on Apps and hardware than your average Androider does. A new report published today confirms this as fact.

Apple Releases New iPhone 6 Ad: 'Voice Text'

Just a couple days after releasing the fifth and sixth iPhone 6 ads starring Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake, Apple has released a seventh called "Voice Text". The new ad focuses on one of the new features introduced to iMessage in iOS 8, the ability to instantly send audio messages quickly and easily. The ad humorously highlights how voice messages can be used to better communication with friends, with examples pointing out how voice messages are good for sarcastic comments, singing and saying hard-to-spell words instead of typing them. Apple, so far, has released two new iPhone 6 ads at a time, releasing "Duo" and "Health" during the iPhone 6 event in September, "Huge" and "Cameras" in late September and "Reservations" and "Gamers" a couple days...
