Mobile web browsing has increasingly been used over the past few years by people all around the world. Mobile internet refers to using smartphones and tablets in lieu of desktop computers for your browsing needs. It cannot be denied that someday these devices will become the new standard for internet surfing. Everyone and their mom has a smartphone and will be checking the weather, reading articles, and checking facebook all on their phone or tablet. By 2017 it is predicted that mobile traffic will increase to 11.2 exabytes a month (thats a whopping 11,200,000,000,000,000,000 bytes).
31% of U.S. mobile web users solely have mobile devices to browse. This means that mobile web is often the first (and only) encounter with commercial brands everyday. 99% of smartphone owners use their browser at least once a day. This is the new advertisement space. To see a brand on your phone has implications towards a major area of market in which people can let their brand be known. What Vitamin T is trying to convey is that companies should invest in pursuing these market areas in order to make a major impact and let their brand be known to the masses. The day for TV commercials is dying and the rise of smartphone ads is on the rise.

“To sleep or not to sleep… Nope, no time to sleep.”
We’ve all been there. The classic all-nighter is something every college kid knows about. No doubt all-nighters are a product of procrastination. No one is perfect and often we get so caught up in the present that the immediate future takes a backseat to the current.
We’ve all had a deadline that we completely forgot about. It happens. Just be smart about how you go about preparing and keeping yourself ready for the long hours of the night.
Be conscious of what you are eating. Foods high in fat can slow you down. Stick the healthy snack foods. Avoid drinking too much coffee, you’ll only get jittery and you could crash. Instead take a break to work out or stretch. Get the blood pumping. The more your blood is circulating, the more oxygen your brain gets.
If you’re going to sleep, and still consider it an all-nighter, stick to power naps. Rest between 10-30 minutes and you should be more refreshed and energized. However, if you are a deep sleeper like me, power naps don’t work at night. You’ll wake up pissed you didn’t get a darn thing done.
Though this infographic is aimed at students, sleep deprivation effects everyone the same. Sleep deprivation can be hazardous to ones health in the long run. The body needs time to repair itself. You’ve got to let your body do it’s thing so you can get back to doing yours. [via]

Living one’s life more healthily can often be quite a big change from how they normally do things, but it doesn’t all need to be tackled at once. One step at a time, people can and do make themselves healthier every day and as a result, we’re living longer as a whole. There are as many proactive steps to a long, healthy life as there are preventative steps, and there’s never a better time to start the healthy lifestyle than at a young age.
Today’s infographic from BMI Healthcare gives us a look at some of the main health issues and problems that face young people, and what can be done in order to ensure everyone’s good health. After all, the path to living to 100 starts at a young age. Some of the best ways to stay healthy really seem like common knowledge, but it’s often easy to forget or overlook something that will make us healthier in favor of something easier instead. Making sure kids are active is key, along with a healthy, balanced diet. Your kids aren’t into traditional sports like soccer or football? You’re in luck, because there are literally hundreds of other active activities they could choose from that will keep them moving as well as entertained.
For more info on how to stay healthy (and maybe just reach that century milestone), have a look at the graphic below. [Via]

What makes people kill?
Every day there are news reports of gruesome murders that cause most of us to cringe. We’re fascinated but repulsed. It seems these serial killers share the same fascination without the repulsion. According to today’s infographic, they might just be wired that way. An abnormal chromosome is all it takes to distinguish a serial murderer from a regular person. They find a kind of release in killing, instead of remorse.
Sociopaths are particularly interesting killers. They have no regard for others and have no actual feelings of empathy for people, yet they can come across as deceivingly charming, seductive, and charismatic.
And according to today’s infographic, many serial killers experience abuse as a child. They also feel that they’ve “never developed a sense of attachment and belonging to the world,” which brings up the subject of nature vs. nurture. These killers may be genetically disposed from birth to eventually become killers, but when coupled with abuse from an early age, the abuse could have been the tipping point that made them kill. If they hadn’t been abused, could this abnormal chromosome and it’s associated characteristics manifested itself in a different way?
Check out today’s infographic for a look inside the mind of a serial murderer. [Via]
