Windows 8 overtakes iPad

According to Net Applications (which measures unique web visitors) there are now more people using Windows 8 PCs to browse the web than iPads.

StatCounter (which measure web page views) doesn't break out the iPad, but shows Windows 8 overtaking iOS in April.

Of course it's hard to draw any solid conclusions from this single data point in isolation, but in the very least it's a useful statistic to help illustrate the kind of impact Windows 8 is having outside of our own tech focused echo chamber.
