2,8 % des connexions à Internet se font sur un mobile C'est le principal enseignement de la dernière édition des statistiques mensuelles de Net Application : 2,8 % des connexions à Internet sont réalisés à partir d'un appareil mobile. 96,97 % des connexions à Internet sont toujours effectuées depuis un ordinateur au sens classique du terme, mais la progression des appareils mobiles est continue, s'accélérant même depuis l'été. Le surf sur console de jeux, lui, stagne et reste largement marginal. La plateforme mobile qui surfe le plus reste iOS : les appareils iOS sont près de 5 fois plus présents sur Internet que les appareils Android. iOS surfe plus que les ordinateurs sous Linux Google a bien d'autres raisons de s'enorgueillir : Chrome représente 7,98 % des connexions à Internet, solide troisième derrière Internet Explorer et Firefox. Le rebond d'Internet Explorer et le repli de Firefox se sont ce mois-ci inversés : IE perd 0,75 point à 59,65 % de parts d'usage, tandis que Firefox gagne 0,03 % à 22,96 %.

Levchin and Gurley Say That Next Big Company Will Capture The Interest Graph Yesterday, at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference in San Francisco, Googler and PayPal founder Max Levchin and Benchmark GP Bill Gurley discussed “game-changing technology” and the future of the Web. Emblematic of today’s mindset, they attacked this rather large topic by comparing the strengths and objectives of Google and Facebook, using the latter’s jaw-dropping stats (500+ million users, 1 in every 13 people on Earth logs into Facebook each day) and its promotion of the social graph as a measure of what’s to come. Levchin said that Facebook is fast becoming the new social white pages, i.e. when you don’t know where someone is on the Web, you go to Facebook to find and connect with them. But, in addition to that, he says, the social networking giant is really “the rich white pages,” where you not only locate someone but have the added benefit of finding out what they like, what they read, what their favorite movies are, and so on.

Square Processing $2B In Payments Per Year, Has Signed Up 800K Merchants Disruptive mobile payments company Square is making a number of announcements today relating to growth and new user features. First, the company is dropping its new user limits. For background, Square offers an iPhone, Android and iPad app which allows merchants to process and manage credit card transactions with a handy little credit card swiping device that plugs into the headset/microphone jack. The device and service is the brainchild of Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and Jim McKelvey. In May, the company debuted a new service to replace the cash register and loyalty card, and in June, Square raised a $100 million in funding, which valued the company above $1 billion. Historically, if a new Square user processed more than $1000 in transactions per week, anything above that $1000 will be held for a certain amount of time. “We’re not going to sleep until we improve the entire experience of buying and selling,” he says.

Netflix Abandons Plan to Rent DVDs on Qwikster 7:19 p.m. | Updated The New Coke experiment lasted less than three months. Qwikster did not even make it out of the bottle. In a swift reversal, Netflix said Monday that it had decided to keep its DVD-by-mail and online streaming services together under one name and one Web site, abandoning the breakup it had announced three weeks earlier.

Some reacted on Monday by teasing Netflix and its chief executive, Reed Hastings, for being topsy-turvy, but many praised the company for, as Ingrid Chung of put it in an analysts’ note, “listening to its customers (finally) and working to fix its relationship” with them.
