Google hasn’t exactly revealed sales figures of the Chromecast, but it did say soon after the launch of this HDMI dongle that they had underestimated its demand. This $35 dongle became an instant hit soon after it was launched last year, and even though its only available in the U.S. right now, there has been speculation that it is ready to go global.

If the latest statistics from an analytics firm called Mixpanel are true, then the iPhone could very well be on the verge of accounting for over 20 percent off the entire iPhone market share. If the current flagship’s growth continues at this rate soon enough its going to overtake the iPhone 4S to clinch the second slot of the most popular Apple smartphone. Its plastic touting sibling, the iPhone 5c, isn’t doing nearly as well, which can come to be expected of it now.
