The next generation of Apple’s iPhone has some serious competition from the Android platform, reports the Associated Press. Today, the research firm IDC released figures from its second quarter analysis of the smartphone market.

The results showed Google’s mobile operating system coming in on top. The figures also reveal that the Android handset makers shipped a total of 105 million units, giving Android 68% market share and a 21% increase over last year.

However, Apple decreased from 19% to 17%.

IDC attributes Android’s success in large part to Samsung’s best-selling line of Galaxy smartphones.

Apple comes in second to Samsung, who is the top smartphone company in the world.

IDC estimated that Samsung has moved 50.2 million handsets, while Apple sold 26 million.

Although Apple is selling less, it’s making more money from each sale of handsets than Google makes because Apple owns the hardware and software.

Windows Phone OS increased from 2.3% of the smartphone market to 3.5%.

Drone Ambulances Could Make It To People Faster And Save More Lives

A Belgian engineering student has designed a drone equipped with a defibrillator meant to service victims of cardiac arrest. Ambulances can take as long as 10 minutes to reach their destination, says 23-year-old Alec Momont, which is why just 8 percent of the 800,000 people who have heart attacks each year in the European Union survive.

Reporter Gets Laughed Off Stage After Farting On Live TV (Video)

There are a few things in this world that I firmly believe are universally enjoyable and, in my honest opinion, people who don’t find farts funny are not to be trusted for any reason.

NYPD Threw Masks And Gloves From Ebola Scene In Street Garbage Can

NYPD officers who helped seal off the apartment of Ebola patient Dr. Craig Spencer last night were seen removing gloves and masks and placing them in a public trash can.
