Apple was the top hardware manufacturer site in May 2009, with 55.7 million unique visitors and an average time spent per person of 1 hour and 14 minutes, according to a new report from Nielsen Online.

Excitement surrounding the new iPhone 3GS sent blog mentions up 1,226 percent week-over-week on June 8, the day of the announcement. After the initial announcement, buzz dipped but picked up again after the phone became available on June 19, with blog mentions more than doubling compared to the prior week.

More than a third (37%) of online U.S. adults own a game console, while 10 percent plan on purchasing a new console in the next 12 months.

    I am actually somewhat surprised about the hype that the 3Gs created. To me, the biggest announcement was the fact that the 3G is now $99. The various upgrades in the 3Gs are nice, but the swarm of people who bought into the 3G last year have to give up an arm and a leg to get one. The hype must be from many of the original iPhone owners and those who had not yet bought into the iPhone product line.
