With the Oscars having been on last night I thought this infographic would be a pretty cool one to share with ya’ll today. This infographic assumes the Mayans are wrong and we will continue existing past this year. It is a nice timeline of when films would theoretically take place in the timeline. Enjoy! [via]

Are Mobile Devices Destroying Your Body? [infographic]

Though most of my peers are tightly chained to their devices, few of us seem to grasp that. Being truly chained to convenience, most cannot see the parasite for what it is.

Of course, mobile technology has its uses. It’s even ridiculous to point that out. But have you ever felt a distinct repulsion from your mobile phone? Perhaps your delicate eyes, when confronted by the screen, were offended by the fluorescent, hypnotic glare. ..

If you’ve ever felt at a complete distance from your phone, there are some very good, proven reasons that explain this aversion.

Listed below are the insidious, detrimental effects of those seemingly helpful sidekicks.
Personally, I’ve been very aware of the effects of screens on my eyes for a long time. My cave-fish blindness and light sensitivity has heightened my awareness of the raw fire of the screen since cell phones were ever around me.

In fact, as the infographic illustrates, such screens manage to attack all of our senses. Read on to clarify exactly what your plastic “friend” is doing to you. (via)

Crazy McDonald’s Items [infographic]

I’ve honestly never really been a fan of McDonalds. But the fact it is that everyone else in the world is. McDonalds is everywhere thanks to tasty food and smart marketing. It’s the largest chain of fast food restaurants and takes the throne of all corporate giants.  You’ll find a Mcdonalds in almost every country or state that you visit, and once you see those golden arches, you know that your home to your beloved Big Mac. Or are you?

Turns out, McDonalds menu options vary by state and country. You won’t find a Cheese Katsu in America, but you’ll find the fried pork sandwich stuffed with cheese available in Asia. Even the McDonalds in Germany features beer on their menu!

Some of the items in this infographic are failed menu items, but it would be great to bring some of them back! I would defiantly like to try McDonalds take on pizza, appropriately named, The McPizza. If anything this infographic should inspire you to try new foods as you venture out of you home state. Instead of venturing out to some hole in the wall to try some new cuisine, you can just stroll over to the nearest McDonalds and see what they have to offer. Bon appetite! [via]

Steam: Valve’s Ingenious Digital Store [infographic]

February 24, 2012 |  by  |  Business, Gaming  |  1 Comment

The one thing in common about movies, television shows, music or books is that they’ve all gone digital. I use Netflix instead of cable, Spotify instead of iTunes, and Kindle Reader instead of paperbacks. Want to guess what I use for video games? Yup, Steam.

Steam has been around for a while and was one of the first digital distributors who really figured it out. The Valve team noticed that video games don’t have to have a $60 price tag. Lower pricing means more volume sold – cutting out the packaging and selling digitally is very cost affective. They are constantly having specials, game bundles and discounts because they know the profit of a customer doesn’t end with one sale. I know the first time I used Steam was for a super discounted Portal. Since that day I’ve bought two other discounted games and have some pretty boisterous brand loyalty.

With Steam already owning over 50% of the video game digital distribution market they have a huge head start on competitors. They have set the standard of rewarding game developers over twice what they receive from their normal retailers. This is going to be a tough pill to swallow for companies like GameStop. They have been screwing over their customers and clients forever. Now that they must deal with a dying business model, they better jump on board the digital distribution train. [Via]

The Power of Google [infographic]

Google.com is pretty self explanatory. Right? If you said yes, there’s a good chance you’re not using Google to its full potential.

Recently, I found that there’s this complete underground world of mind-blowing search tools for Google, never before mentioned to me. The infographic says that three out of every four students couldn’t perform a “well-executed search”. Typing “regular show death punchies” instead of simply “regular show” does not constitute a well-executed search. Instead, there’s a whole list of tildes, brackets, and quotation points that can tweak a search for better or worse.

With midterm papers beginning to breath down my back, this information will be quite beneficial. Being able to use Google properly won’t guarantee me residency on the Dean’s List. But here’s to wishful thinking. [Via]
