While I greatly appreciate my iPhone and its many self-computing functions, I have never taken the time to trace my gratitude back as far as Leonardo da Vinci or even as far as prehistoric cave drawings. According to this awesome infographic put together by The BOSS Group, I have many more to thank than just Steve Jobs.

The creative process would not have begun had people not had an intrinsic desire to communicate with one another. Over time we have discovered and invented new ways to relay information to increasingly larger groups of people. By inventing printing and computing methods we have increased the need for creative workers in virtually every field. Without the creative side of organizations, the first Macintosh would not have been introduced, brand management would not be possible, and communication through beautiful imagery would cease to exist.

The BOSS Group is an award-wining creative staffing firm for interactive, creative and marketing talent. They’ve been supplying temporary, temp-to-hire, direct hire, and managed services solutions to leading organizations across virtually every industry sector for 25 years. Check out the evolution of creative, and wish them a happy birthday! [via]

Car Tech Countdown to 2018 [Infographic]

Our world keeps advancing at an incredible pace, day in and day out, year after year; what’s even more incredible is that we seem to always be expanding and growing faster than we were before. Anyone reading this has likely seen a technological breakthrough or two within their lifetimes, due to the advancement of mobile phone technology alone. Not to mention all of the breakthroughs in medicine, computers, and space exploration, to name a few. Even television has had radical changes in the past 20 years, going from those huge “tube TVs” to smaller, yet higher definition sets. One industry in particular, though, is overdue for some radical breakthroughs of its own: the automotive industry.

While the automotive industry has definitely made some impressive advances in the past 20 years, seldom has something come along that completely changes our perception and the way we think about cars and transportation (with the Prius being one of the few examples). Today’s infographic from Mashable shows us some of the features and changes we can expect to see from our vehicles within the next five years. One of the most interesting changes that the graphic covers, especially concerning resource conservation, is the potential move from gasoline-powered engines to hydrogen power instead. And of course, what kind of futuristic car tech graphic would it be if it didn’t include arguably the most discussed and anticipated vehicular innovation of the past few years? That’s right, self-driving cars (hopefully by 2018).

For more info on what we can look forward to from our transportation in the near future have a look at the graphic below. [Courtesy of L&L Automotive]

Planning A Summer Road Trip? [infographic]

June 23, 2013 |  by  |  Travel  |  No Comments

While traveling often leads to amazing and powerful experiences, it can sometimes be maddening. Especially when long road trips are involved. I can remember countless long drives with my family where I would stare out the window until I was bored with the scenery, try to read a book and get hellishly car sick, or watch rain drops “race” each other down the windows, while my brother and I would place bets on the winning drops.

Being trapped in the car for hours on end may give you the chance to bond with your friends and family, but it can also make you feel completely crazy. Singing “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” is only entertaining for about five bottles in, and the “I Spy” game isn’t exactly the most stimulating activity you can do.

To stay safe and sane in the car while taking road trips, it’s important to take breaks from driving, pack healthy snacks, and take into consideration the automobile hazards mentioned in today’s infographic. Crash risks, traffic congestion, and high gas prices are all important factors to consider when planning your trip.

Crafty Criminals: Top 7 Greatest Heists in History [Infographic]

June 22, 2013 |  by  |  Crime, Entertainment  |  No Comments

For some reason, regardless of a person’s moral integrity, organized criminal activity has always been appealing to people. Whether it’s hearing about Italian mobsters in The Sopranos, or watching the booze-swinging bootleggers of Boardwalk Empire, people love to hear about the sly, smooth bad boys who found a way to beat the system.

Instead of following the fictitious escapades of TV and movie characters though, let’s take a look into some real, historically accurate heists that have occurred in the past 100 years.

For starters, take a look at a group of Brazilian thieves who went old-school and dug a hole straight into the vault room at a Brazilian bank in 2005, and walked away with $65 million. Or, an Italian nationalist who hid inside The Louvre overnight and walked out the front door the next day with the original Mona Lisa under his jacket!

Whether it’s an inherent attraction to what we can’t have, or if it’s just down right entertaining, crafty criminal heists will always catch the attention of every day people like you and me.

So, in the spirit of mischievously witty criminals, here is a list of seven of the greatest heists in history.

Play Ball! [infographic]

Baseball games are my favorite sporting events to attend. Since I grew up in Texas, I am a Rangers fan and loved going to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Not only because of the game itself, but the atmosphere is like nothing else. The Star Spangled Banner gives me chills, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” brings back nostalgia, the long red liquorice sticks that taste like medicine, the wave that goes on for at least 5 minutes, and of course there is always some crazy old man yelling “Hot Dogs!”.

I remember thinking that it was odd that the “The Dot Game” never died at the baseball games I attended. If you don’t know what the Dot Game is, I will explain: Everyone in the audience is given a little piece of paper with a red, blue, green, or yellow dot printer on it. When the time came, the giant TV would would show a race track with all the colored dots racing against each other. If your color won, then you got a free Whataburger or something. I will admit that as a child, I found this part of the game much more entertaining than the sport itself. Sorry Juan Gonzalez!
