Still unconvinced we’re headed towards a post-PC future? We can at least conclusively say we’ve entered a post-netbook present, as Q2 2011 marks the first time their numbers have been eclipsed by tablets, according to ABI Research. 13.6 million slates were shipped in the quarter, besting the 7.3 million the diminutive laptops were able to clock in When compared to the prior quarter, that works out to 112 percent or 7.2 million increase (!) for the former, and a 1.1 million decline for the latter. Cost apparently isn’t a driving factor, as the firm notes that tablets pack an average price of $600 — nearly double that of their trackpad-toting brethren. Oh, and in case you were wondering, 68 percent of tablets shipped were of Cupertino’s flavor. More cold hard facts await you in the PR after the break.

In 2010, attendance in Major League Baseball was down for the third straight year. And early indicators suggest that 2011 will just be more of the same.

If we look at every team and what their attendance was after the same number of home games a year ago, we see that attendance is down 1.9 percent. That doesn’t seem that bad. But at this pace it would be just another step in continuing trend.

But more importantly, we can now see that some teams are suffering much more than others.

So far in 2011, five teams are down at least 10 percent in attendance from the same point a year ago. And one of those teams (Tampa Bay) has a winning record.

MLB Attendance 2010-2011

But attendance isn’t down everywhere. The Blue Jays and Rangers are both up more 30 percent from a year ago.

And also keep in mind that we are dealing with percentages here, not absolute numbers. It is much easier for the Blue Jays to achieve a 44.3 percent increase when they were only averaging 15,000 fans per game at this point last year than it would be for the Yankees who were averaging 45,000 in 2010.

coupon sites: definitely headed upward with a spike in Dec 08.

network TV sites are seeing healthy increases, likely due to “view full episodes” on their websites – but even this increase in traffic will not replace the advertising revenues lost on network television
