California is an iPhone State

It looks like I live in a state (California), where the iPhone, is the popular choice. The report is based on the Retrovo Gadget Census. See map below. The map details which smart phone is popular state by state. It’s no surprise that the iPhone dominates California since Apple’s headquarters is in Silicon Valley.

What was surprising, is that the iPhone is also popular in the Southeast region of the country, the northern states as well as in West Virginia of all places. What even more interesting is, the iPhone is also popular in the state of Washington. Where are the Window 7 phones?

The Android in the other hand, dominates the Midwest, Alaska and Hawaii.

What does the graph tell us? Not much. You can draw your own conclusions. It could just be, that the local providers in each state, have a lot to do with it more than we think. It could be about economic status. What do you think?

World Cup 2010 Starts Tomorrow

The World Cup 2010 starts tomorrow in South Africa. Support your country. I have the US Soccer logo included in this blog. USA are in Group C. They play England on Saturday, then Slovenia and Algeria in that order. I’m being realistic. I’m giving the US a 30% chance of winning against a talented and experience English team. That’s 3 of 10 games the US can pull off an upset.

Anything is possible. If we can beat Spain at last year’s Confederations Cup, we can beat England. You never know. The US will need lady luck on its side. I figure the US will finish 2nd in Group C. I hoping they could. If not, it will be a dismal failure like 2006. From there, getting to second stage, quarter finals and semi-finals will be an added bonus. They key matches for USA will be against Slovenia and Algeria. If the US win the last two games, they are in with 6 points.

By the way, the first game will be between Mexico and host-nation South Africa. I have feeling South Africa will be a hard test for Mexico, but Mexico will probably win.
