    Being the bored, aimless, procrastinating fool that I am, I was digging around on Alexa.com and I noticed a really weird traffic pattern for macrumors.com. See here: http://www.alexa.com/data/details/t...e=medium&compare_sites=&url=macrumors.com#top

    I thought about the wild swings in traffic shown on the graph, and then I realized: all the huge upticks appear to be on Tuesdays. It must be that a vast number of people check in only on Tuesdays, looking for Apple announcements. Or else I'm just missing something because, in addition to being bored, aimless, and procrastinating, I can also be dumb.

    Just thought that was interesting.

    Heh, we crush Microsoft.com in comparison of popularity.

    Oh, that's hilarious.

    For those who know, it seems that the announcements for new hardware have tendencies to come out on Tuesdays.

    Who would have thought that the traffic would be that biased as well....

    Nah... I don't think it's a Tuesday phenomenon.

    If you look at other sites, there are similar trends. It's just the way the stats are recorded I think.

    It's a virtual trading site... good for fun, no real $$$ involved, AFAIK.
