    Since when does unique IP addresses mean customers? I've visited the store a few times to have a giggle at the prices but never purchased anything. And I imagine a good majority of the visits to the site won't result in a purchase, especially if people aren't prepared for the prices!

    It's no surprise that the worlds best company is visited by a huge amount of people. Apple are printing money.

    Wow - you're a big fan of Amazon.

    And yes, Apple aren't exactly down to their last billion ...

    Nice to see that HP are in there - presumably this was visits to the e-commerce side, not to download drivers for whatever device you already own.

    "When you break down the figures by region you can see that Apple accounts for almost a third of all surfers in North America and 30 percent in Europe.
