Apple doesn’t attend CES. But it sure hates to be ignored
during the fun.Iphone
 

The company today announced that 3 billion apps have been
downloaded from the App store since its launch in July 2008. That’s 1 billion
more apps than the company announced on Sept. 28 of last year – a huge surge.

Gizmodo did some of the math. That works out to 30,612,244
apps per day, 1,275,510 per hour, 121,043 per minute or 350 per second.

Of course, it’s not just CES that’s making Apple speak up.
Google will unveil its entry in the smart phone category today – one that
owners can use with any phone network they want to, rather than being
restricted to a single carrier.
