Week in Numbers: Record patches


This week has seen storage software sales fall, record security patches, TfL do something right, and a massive hacking attack - oh, and something called an iPhone 3G S.

5.2 the percentage decline in storage software sales, according to IDC. It's the first drop in the sector in five years.

31 the record number of patches Microsoft released this week, alongside Adobe's first ever quarterly update, which addressed 13 flaws. The releases should keep IT admins busy for a while

41 the per cent by which Transport for London has managed to cut its supplier costs, after bringing much of its IT back in-house. All good news, but after this week's strike, we're still feeling a little bitter here in London.

275 the top price of the Apple iPhone 3G S, the latest gadget to be released to the adoration of fanboys and girls around the globe. O2 won't be letting die-hards out of current contracts though, so upgrade immediately could get pricey.

100,000 the number of websites taken down after a hacking attack hit ISP Vaserv. No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
