Samsung has notched up another milestone in its battle for mobile supremacy with Apple and Nokia after it leapfrogged both its arch-rivals in terms of mobile web use for the first time.
Web analytics firm StatCounter reports that the South Korean giant now accounts for a quarter of all mobile web browsing at 25.47 per cent; marginally ahead of Apple on 25.09 per cent and much better than Nokia which fell below 22 per cent.
Just one year ago Nokia had led the field thanks to its stock of older devices still in use.
Samsung didn’t have things entirely its own way however, in the most developed markets such as the US and UK Apple retains a clear lead, growing to account for 54.84 per cent of the market across the pond.
Samsung, by contrast, managed just 18.3 per cent – although this was a significant jump from 12.65 per cent last year.
In its report StatCounter said: “It has been a fascinating 12 months in terms of internet usage and the battle to dominate the mobile landscape. [It has included] the rise of Samsung to overtake Apple globally for the first time, albeit by a very small margin. Casualties along the way have included Nokia, plus BlackBerry, which declined despite efforts to reinvent itself.”
Aodhen Cullen, Statcounter’s chief executive, added: “There is a battle royal under way between the providers of browsers, mobile devices, search engines and social media. What makes the battle fascinating is that many of the big beasts of today’s technology age, including Google, Microsoft and Apple are going head to head.”
Spike Lee’s remake of the Japanese thriller Oldboy has hit the web, and the first look starring Josh Brolin as a man who is mysteriously locked away for 20 years, then suddenly and inexplicably released. The bloody remake also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen and Sharito Copley as the film’s big bad Adrien Pryce. Oldboy hits theaters in the U.S. on October 25.
Amanda Seyfried doesn’t believe in trusting her heart.
When considering whether or not she has a future with a member of the opposite sex, the actress tells the latest issue of Elle:
“Everybody I’ve dated I’ve been sexually attracted to immediately. Sparks don’t grow – your vagina doesn’t become more inclined to wanting someone just because you’re around them.”
Well… alright then!
Seyfried has sex on the mind these days because she is starring as Linda Lovelace in Lovelace (watch the Lovelace trailer now!), a biopic of the famous porn star.
“I read the script and I was like, ‘Wow, this is the riskiest thing that’s happening [in Hollywood] right now,’” she says of the part.
“The first thing you think about is that it could have ruined my career. At the same time, I was like, ‘This is my chance to show them, to show the industry, to be recognized.’”
Lovelace hits theaters on August 9 and the August issue of Elle arrives on newsstands July 23. We may need to buy it.
