Who Takes More Selfies?

We have a new winner in the tablet wars. Android outsold Apple for the first time. Gartner says that of the 195 million tablets sold last year, Android sold 121 million of them. Apple sold 70 million. One reason for Android’s rise: it’s low-end, smaller-screen devices.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple is working with Ferrari and Volvo to put its dashboard operating system in their cars.  The paper says Apple’s announcement will coincide with the start of the Geneva Auto Show.

And, when on social networking sites, it’s hard nowadays to avoid seeing a selfie pop up. But who is taking more selfies – men or women. Researchers from City University of New York, California Institute of Telecommunication and Information, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation studied and cataloged thousands of selfies shared online from over a wide variety of social networking sites like Instagram, Facebook and others.  The project found that women take significantly more selfies than men, but once women hit 40, the trend reverses itself.  For people age 40 and over, it’s the men who snap more. The researchers say the selfie has become more than just self promotion. It is also about creative self expression..

It’s such big phenomenon that there was this whole study done about a simple way to take a photo. That’s your Daily Tech.
