Google added 0.3% in the same time frame, Microsoft stayed steady with 15.9% in both months, the Ask Network increased by 0.3% from 3.2% in August to 3.5% in September and AOL saw a 0.1% increase from 1.7% to $1.8%.

This means that Google commands a 66.7% chunk of the US search market, which is undeniably strong. comScore has also said that in September alone, around 16.3 billion searches were made, which is reportedly 4% down from August.

With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
