He was talking about an article which reported that the iPhone 5 sales have helped Apple to take climb up the sales chart atleast in the US.

About Friday Many people find it difficult to maintain a diary (me), but I wish I knew what I did a week or a month back. Sometimes I would know what I did, but would have no idea when I did it. Android has some apps which will export your call logs and SMSs to your Gmail inbox or to Google Calendar. ... Read More »
