IE Users Angry Over Accusation Of Having Low IQ

AptiQuant is the research firm behind the survey from which they inferred that Internet Explorer users are usually dumb and have low IQ levels when compared to Chrome, Mozilla or Safari users.

This is a highly profane statement regarding IE users which have led them to a fury against the consulting company. Since the release of study results, IE users have threatened to file a law suit against the company and have sent hate mails to the company. The company performed more than 100,000 IQ tests and compiled the results on the bases of browser a user used.

Dell Bounces Back In Profits

I was watching Dell’s stock closely last year and they weren’t doing too good. The company hung around $12 a share for the majority of Q4 last year. The company is really picking up now. Dell has just issued a statement that it has made a net income of $945M pr 49 cents a share which is quite a leap from $341M or 17 cents a share earlier in the year. The CEO and chairman of Dell, Michael Dell, claimed that the company was off to a solid start for the fiscal year of 2012 and that the substantial profit increase demonstrates that Dell’s strategy is working and the execution is improving.

Apple Does Not Track Movements, Android Does

According to Steve Jobs, Apple does not use any of the location data that is stored on an individual’s iPad or iPhone. Apparently the configuration file that was recently discovered is a bug and the info collected within that database file is stored on the device itself. When an iPhone user recently threatened Jobs that he would switch to an Android phone, Jobs claimed “we don’t track anyone, [Android] does.” I assume some worried consumers contacted Google because they recently admitted that they in fact do track Android users, but they do so anonymously.

A Google spokesman explained that Google tracks users’ movements to provide customized services such as maps, improved search results for nearby shops or restaurants, and to study traffic on various roads.
