Pub Facts no. 2

And your second interesting technology statistic of the day:

  • iPhones are being born at a faster rate than people.


Pub Facts no. 1

I learned a couple of interesting technology statistics in the pub last night, and I feel it my duty to pass them on, so that you too can astound your friends at your weekend dinner parties. I'll post them separately, as a cheap ploy to increase impact and heighten suspense.

OK. Here's the first:

  • The rate at which ARM processors are being produced is approximately middle C. (around 260/sec).

Hum it to yourself for best effect.

Thanks to John Biggs of ARM for that one.
