Doomsday Predictions Debunked [infographic]

2012 has been a pretty good year, aside from the stigma placed on it years in advance. I’ve been fearing this year for a few years now. Not because I completely believed in the Mayan Calendar or anything of that nature, but more because the social hysteria this date has caused alone is enough to kill you alone.

For those of you who needed that one infographic to keep your hope alive in humanity, feast your eyes! Down below is a detailed description of every failed major apocalypse prediction ever made. It spans from Nostradamus to the more recent Harold Camping.

Now, I post this not to highlight the failures of others, but instead to show how someone can predict something as bold as the end of the days and it not come true. A lot of research can focus around one date all based on a hunch and many of us will ride that hunch momentarily, or to the ground. Be aware of all possibilities, but also don’t believe everything you read. The end may be predictable and it may not be, only time will tell. Live everyday like it’s your last and spread peace and happiness everywhere you go, starting with this glorious Humpday. Have a great rest of the week! [Via]

No More Shuffling [infographic]

I am not a gadget person. I used to be, but I am no longer a gadget collector. Having a camera, telephone, iPod and computer used to be grand and make me feel fancy, but I am a very spacey lady. I can’t keep all of my gadgets in order and usually end up just forgetting about them. These days I am an iPhone-a-holic. I can keep track of that handy little device, but the iPad is looking so bright, shiny and practical.

Today’s infographic is highlighting the practicality of purchasing an iPad. Why have a computer, fancy camera, point and shoot, tablet and iReader when you can stick to an iPad! Would you trade in all of your gadgets for an iPad, pass on an iPad or keep everything? I want to hear your opinions! [Via]

Instant America [infographic]

Unfortunately today marks the end of Spring Break for a lot of us, meaning the fun is over and it is time to get back to work. This week meant South by Southwest was here in Austin and there was a lot to be seen and do. Today’s infographic seems appropriate considering a large portion of SXSW are the interactive days. Personally, I think Interactive is the most entertaining of the three (Interactive, Music, Film) it is full of people working on cool projects, handing out free stuff, and showing off their cool products. One of the cooler gadgets I saw at SXSW this year was a touch table I got to play air hockey on.

Interactive attracts exactly who today’s infographic covers, people who are impatient with load times. All through downtown Austin I heard people complaining about how slow the internet connection was on their phone, the frustration I saw was actually pretty entertaining. You don’t realize how real first world problems until you see people losing their cool because the internet on their phone is running a little slow.

According to today’s infographic Instant America 50% of mobile users abandon a page if it does not load within 10 seconds and 3 out of 5 will not return back to that page. With today’s infographic we also see the increasing trend of choosing mobile over tablets, laptops, or desktops to access the interwebs. [via]

Threat Morphosis: Evolution of the Computer Virus [infographic]

Evolution has fascinated me for quite a while. In the digital age, what’s even more interesting is the parallel evolution that’s going on within our machinery.

Computers are our creation, and like us, they get sick. There are malevolent growths within them: viruses. As technology progresses, so do the they. This happens in the same way that biological viruses evolve along with the development of new antibiotics; the more complex the antibiotics are, the more resilient the surviving viruses are.

Computer viruses, however, have one fundamental difference: they are created with the malicious intent of humans. These intentions also evolve over time. This evolution is creatively illustrated below. Read on, and don’t forget to back up all your files to a hard drive! (via)

The Perks of Walking [infographic]

Mostly because I was too cheap to take a bus and kept getting lost , I did an insane amount of walking at South by South West today. I trotted across downtown several times in my trusty cowboy boots, which became exhausting after a while. Throughout the day I refueled my body with several slices of pizza, ritz crackers, and beer (not exactly the ideal spring break diet) While this is usually a big no-no for me, I kept reassuring myself that all the walking I was doing would make up for it. But now that I actually think about it,  I really am curious to know if all the walking I did earned me 4 slices of pizza and some beers.

Turns out, all my walking didn’t burn too many calories, but I did burn some fat and strengthen my legs. I also improved my heart health and engaged my core. Not too bad for having fun at the same time.

Even though all my walking today won’t result in drastic positive changes, it is easy to see on today’s infographic that there are only positive results that come from regular walking. It’s great to realize that I was benefiting my body while having a great time at South by South West with great friends and music. [via]
