iPad family web traffic dominates while all others dwindle in latest Chitika study

There's really no two ways about it - studies looking at the use of tablets on the market today suggest that the iPad continues its reign of dominance - at least in the web traffic universe. As the iPad appears to gain steam in studies of web traffic as revealed by Chitika this month, if only by a bit more than a percentage point each month, the difference is much more significant when considering the competition. It's as if there is none.

Think about the last 24 hours of your life. If you're like most individuals, it was likely filled with dozens of instances of accessing the Internet, probably starting with a smartphone in the morning and a laptop or tablet at night. The Internet is everywhere, and many use it for essential tasks, such as navigation, shopping, work, and school. Because of this, it is hard to imagine having never used it, making the results of a recent study a tad surprising. In the UK alone, 7 million adults have never used the Internet.

Earth’s carbon dioxide levels reach near-record high

According to scientists and researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, carbon dioxide levels on Earth have reached a level that hasn't been seen in at least three million years. Scientists believe that large changes in the climate and sea levels are to blame for the rising amount of carbon dioxide.

Study suggests water on the Moon came from Earth

Study suggests water on the Moon came from Earth

Scientists and researchers have discovered that droplets of water found in lunar rocks brought back from the Moon are identical on a chemical level from that of samples of ancient Earth. The rocks used in the study came from samples brought back by Apollo 15 in 1971 and Apollo 17 in 1972, the latter being NASA's last mission to the moon.

Researchers discover correlation between bullet speed and number of cracks in glass

Researchers discover correlation between bullet speed and number of cracks in glass

Scientists and researchers at Aix-Marseille University have conducted a study that claims there is a correlation between a bullet's speed and the number of cracks in a glass window where the bullet went through. After shooting at over 100 plexiglass plates, the researchers have concluded that the number of cracks tells us something about how fast the bullet penetrated through.

New stem cell transplants able to restore memory and cognition

A study conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has successfully shown that human stem cells can implant themselves into the brain and heal neurological problems. The experiment was conducted using mice, and it showed that implanted stem cells ended up forming two vital types of neurons, which are involved in different kinds of human behavior, such as emotions, learning, memory, addiction, etc.

Science taps “living fossil” for clues tipping first land animals

If you want to find out what a millions-of-years-old creature was all about, you should only have to head to your local time machine and hit the button, right? As it turns out, studying the genes of one creature by the name of Coelacanth might not be far off. What scientists are doing here in 2013 and announcing this week is sequencing the genome of this deep-sea fish to compare it to the iterations of its being from a long, long time ago. Could Jurrasic Park be far off?
