1.3 million people search for 6.9 million Apple iPhones

Nearly 7 million searches for Apple iPhone in a single month. That’s the surprising statistic to emerge from comScore, a company that specializes in measuring the digital world.

comScore has today released the results of a study into iPhone related searches. Conducted during the month of April and covering just the US market, it reveals that there were 6.9 million searches on related keywords during that period.

The full list of popular iPhone search terms is:

1. IPHONE (1,488,000)
2. IPHONE UPDATE (151,000)
3. IPHONE WEB APPS (118,000)

8. IPHONE G3 (43,000)
9. IPHONES (38,000)
10. IPHONE SPEAKERS (35,000)

“Speculation had been rampant in recent months that Apple CEO Steve Jobs was getting ready to introduce a 3G iPhone at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference on June 9, and indeed he did just that,” said Dan Lackner, comScore Senior VP. “Search is frequently a harbinger of purchase intent. The increase in volume of iPhone searches demonstrates just how heavy that interest has been for the next generation of Apple’s popular phone – even when its existence was still just a rumor.”

Installing VS.net on a EEE

I know there are a lot of programmers out there who have their eye on the little EEE as a little programming machine. It is a wide-known fact that it has a great keyboard. Infact, I do most of my blog enteries here via it and my fingers are absolutely fine!

In this post, I’ll explain how to install VS.net on a EEE 701. I’ll be using the 2003 version as that should be “ok” for the amount of processing our little EEE can do.

Please note that all the screeshots given below link to the original images.

As you can see, as soon as you run the setup.exe, you get a warning telling you that VS.net is meant to be run at a resolution of 800 x 600. Pressing ok will continue the resolution, but, you won’t be able to continue ahead. Why? That you’ll see very soon.

Dual-display e-book concept. Makes sense?

Researchers at Maryland and Berkeley Universities developed a prototype dual-face, modular e-book reader that allows readers to fan pages to advance in a book or via trackball. If you’re doing some serious research, the displays separate from one another, allowing one to display in landscape mode while the other runs in portrait.

Hmm. Dual displays :P I really cannot say if they would be practical in real life usage. I mean, this makes sense while reading a book, but two displays? :/
