Hollywood is all about fast cars. Fast cars, pretty ladies and flashy clothes. Cars define some films, leaving a mark and becoming iconic. If the Batmobile drove past you on the highway you wouldn’t simply think to yourself “that’s a creepy car.” You would immediately know that it is the car of the famous vigilante.

Today’s infographic details some of the fastest, flashiest, time-traveling cars in Hollywood. From Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to The Tumbler, you can read all about each car, its specs, any enhancements and the cost. In the market for a new car? Maybe start with the list below and get some ideas. Sometimes you just really need to drive around at 142 miles per hour, and you will only be able to accomplish that with The “New” Bond Car.

Do you have a favorite Hollywood car? I have to go with The DeLorean, because “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”‘[Via]

Deciphering Your Financial Award Letter [Infographic]

If you’re a senior in high school who is considering attending a college or university once you graduate, there is a good chance that you’ve already started looking at various grants and scholarships. As many people could tell you, the college experience can definitely be costly; between tuition, room and board, food and personal expenses, the price can really begin to add up. That high cost is exactly why it’s a good idea to sit down as early as possible with your scholarship and grant material and thoroughly go over all the factors to find the best possible price.

Today’s infographic from Citizens Bank gives prospective college students a good overview for what to look for when determining cost factors for attending school. Remember that after all of the grant, scholarship and family contributions, there will still likely be more left to be paid, so it’s possible a federal or personal loan may be a good outlet for you. It’s also a good idea to try to find any scholarships or grants in your local community that could help you on your way.

For more helpful hints on scholarships and paying college tuition, have a look at the infographic below. [private student loans]

Why Brits are the Best Grand Prix Racers [infographic]

According to this infographic, the British are the best at virtually everything there is to be good at in the world of Grand Prix racing. They make better cars than anyone else. They win more races than anyone else. They have more championship points than anyone else. They even have more live coverage of Grand Prix races than anyone else. This isn’t just a favorite British pastime we are talking about here, Formula One is a serious sport to people all over the world. In fact, Americans contributed the same percentage of drivers to the Grand Prix as the British. However, Britain has won seven times more championships.

Last November, Austin, Texas (my home town) became the new destination for the Circuit of the Americas Grand Prix. With an inaugural crowd of 117,429 Formula One fans and a total of 265,000 fans in attendance over the course of the three-day race weekend, the turnout was the second highest attendance of any Formula One race in the 2012 season. Austin is an ideal spot for the Grand Prix festivities and was very pleased by this turnout, but it is unlikely that it will ever be the destination with the greatest fan attendance. Any guesses as to who might have had the highest turnout last year? The British Grand Prix at Silverstone, of course!

2016: The Year of the Zettabyte [infographic]

Even I hadn’t even heard of a zettabyte before. A term for data storage equal to 1.1 trillion gigabytes? That sounds crazy and absurd. Yet we are closing in of the transfer of a zettabyte of data annually. The future of the internet isn’t slower speeds and less data transfer, it will be more video streaming, phone lines or video calling and mobile streaming.

Programs like Skype and facetime are taking off. People like to look each other in the eye, can you blame them? Telecommunication has a bright future as well with the increase of data transfer. Imagine calling up the customer service line and the representative walking you through the problem side by side. This technology is out there all ready, but most large companies don’t take advantage of it.

Soon internet speeds will be increased across the board. Companies like Google Fiber are brining extremely fast internet speeds for a reasonable price and the other ISPs will have to catch up. [XO Communications]

Gambling with Celebrities [infographic]

Today’s infographic shines light on the big wins and losses our celebrities have experienced in the word of gambling. Some famous people win, but most lose. Whether it is blackjack, football or divorce many big shots have taken a big shot to their bank account.

Everyone remembers the Tiger Wood’s scandal. His ex-wife came away with $110 million dollars. That’s a lot of cash. It is also funny to hear Michael Phelps plays in a weekly $25,0000 poker game. I’ve heard rumors that he isn’t the nicest guy in the world, but to gamble the median annual salary of high school graduate every week is kind of excessive.

I’m not going to say I don’t like poker, I’ll beat you in Texas Hold-em any day. Lets have a hundred dollar buy-in and play tournament style and I’ll see how good you are… [OnlineGamblingSites]
