Apple's Online Store Is Now the UK's Second Favourite Shopping Site

By Sam Gibbs on at

Love it or hate it, Apple's pretty popular in the UK. Everyone and their Mums seem to have an iPhone or an iPod. But you might be surprised to learn that Apple is Britain's second most visited online retailer after Amazon.

Apple beat out bargain-basement Argos to the second spot, up from 8th in July this year following a five-fold increase in hits. Of course we had the passing of Steve Jobs and the tribute page up on Apple.com, which probably skewed the results, but are we turning into a nation of Apple fanboys? Let's hope not.
