    A new survey from Millennial Media, as reported on by iDownload Blog, finds that tablet use in the US continues to rise, spearheaded by Apple’s iPad and Samsung’s Android tablets. Apple continues to be far in the lead, with 58% of the market, with Android having 41%, and BlackBerry OS a tiny sliver of 1%. Millennial also provides a breakdown of Android brands, with Samsung out in front with 45%, and Amazon in second place with 26% of market share. Motorola, Acer and Asus are all way behind that, with much smaller shares of the market. In its report on the survey, Millennial Media says that Apple’s soaring figures are mainly down to the popularity of the iPad mini, with ad impressions for the mini increasing by an average of 28% per day, beating the 19% ad impressions per day recorded for Amazon’s Kindle Fire when it was launched in 2011.[/FONT]

      Well, I was an undergrad @ U. of Michigan, 1964-67 before entering medical school - my calculating machine was a slide rule (like the one below) which I just donated to Goodwill (maybe I should have kept it?) - the leather holster attached to my belt buckle (you could always tell who was a science-math student in those days) - it's use was permitted on tests in those courses - :)

      The funny thing is, I've seen those in interior design photos, displayed as "found objects."

      Well, one good thing is that a slide rule never required batteries or a charger - :D

      That's what my mom says about her abacus, lol.

      Hey, does she 'network' w/ her abacus? :thumbs:

      Boy, I looked @ that link and the pic below pretty much matches my slide rule, i.e. a Pickett (yellow) w/ a similar leather case - that one is going for $60 on eBay - my bros do eBay - maybe I should have sent it to them to sell? :)

      Lol. Her abacus almost led to us getting spanked as young kids, because she discovered us trying to slide across the floor with our butts on it. Very bad luck, she said.
