The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

My god, it's full of Macs!

According to the most recent figures I could find without spending more than three minutes looking, users of Mac OS X make up 6.22 percent of all Internet usage.

In researching this week's weird search stuff, I noticed that I'm pulling a little over 8 percent Mac users, the vast majority of which are on OS X. I haven't been looking up individual IPs to cross-check, but I have to assume that I have a fair number of regulars with actual Apple hardware.

(Lowest? I had one user last week — from metro D.C. — who actually came in on a BlackBerry.)

I visit you by way of one iBook, one miniMac and one PC.

I don't bother with my Blackberry, but if I were trapped in an airport I might.

I never thought I'd say it, but I love my Macs!

I think I found one of those Internet-capable cellphones in my referrals once. And I think they must have learned their lesson because it was only once.

Count me in as an OS X usin' iBook visitor.

Not to mention how much handsomer and better-endowed Mac users are.

I'm also one of your iBook visitors. Except when I'm at work, but I don't do much direct visiting from work. Only feed-reading.

That's how I get to you, although admittedly I read you in Bloglines which wouldn't relay that I read you on my Macs ;-)

I frequently visit your site via my Blackberry Pearl. The kids and wife have my desktop computer tied up much of the time...

My traffic data shows 7.35% Mac users.
