One digital company that has been relatively quiet in terms of releasing user statistics is WhatsApp. A few user total milestones have trickled out since Facebook purchased the company, but little else.

Last week, Facebook broke this pattern by talking a bit about WhatsApp. This gave me enough material to do a round of updates to my WhatsApp stats page. Here are just a few of the new or updated stats from this round.

Without a doubt, the company that I had the most stats to get caught up on was Google. It is really difficult to keep up with Google stats given how many different measurable (and sizable) tentacles there are in the Google conglomerate. That said, last week’s quarterly earnings report gave me a good excuse to chip away at the log jam and get caught up a bit with Google stats.

Here are just a few of the many Google stats either added or updated in this round. As always, see the bottom of this post for links to all of my Google posts for hundreds more stats.

Apple reported their quarterly earnings earlier this week and they were nothing short of amazing.

Here are some of the more interesting Apple stats from this round of updates and additions…

Siri; it’s a name you’ve probably heard before, even if you’re not an iPhone user.

The digitized voice that almost seems to live in modern-day iPhones, Siri is designed for the purpose of helping smartphone users with various tasks. Do you want to know where the nearest Chinese food place is? Siri will be able to locate it. Are you hazy on the exact day Halloween falls on? Siri has you covered. To say the least, she’s a capable feature that Apple has been able to integrate into its devices. Unfortunately, those who aren’t tech-savvy may find themselves struggling to utilize her services.

Business Insider recently posted an article that went into detail about how a Facebook phone may be created with the help of Samsung. The story said that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg met with the vice chairman of Samsung Electronics, Lee Jay-yong. While reports like these do not necessarily confirm that Samsung will help Facebook create a phone of its own, the reports in question certainly do not make this story any less legitimate. If anything, this particular story might indicate positive news for not only Facebook but a strong portion of its user base as well.
