The History of Digital Storage [Infographic]

It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come in storing and sorting digital media. Since the mid-20th century we’ve gone from needing an entire room to run a computer, down to a pocket-sized version of the same thing. That’s an amazing growth of technological capacity in the span of just a few decades. All of the storage devices that we’ve used over the years have come in all shapes and sizes. From cassettes to floppy discs to flash drives to sd cards, it’s really astounding how much we can make out of so little these days.

I heard from a friend who worked SXSW this year that there’s a computer being made that is the size of a juice box. It has every sort of port you would need – flash, hdmi, etc, and can run Call of Duty 4 without a hitch. Also there’s been development of a flash drive that can hold up to a terrabyte of memory! With the popularity of cloud storage, we can now even store things on the internet. I personally have all of my music loaded to Google so that I will never lose it do to hard drive or external drive failure. It’s a wondrous age we live in. Lets hope the apocalypse doesn’t erase everything.

How-To Troubleshoot DNS Errors [infographic]

The IT department is the backbone of many companies. It isn’t always my favorite thing to do, but if the Internet goes down or a shared folder is inaccessible, off I go to call IT. I depend on them for any computer malfunction, mostly because I am completely incapable of any technical support of my own!

At home, my brother is our IT department. I call on him for any computer malfunction, which he can almost always fix, and he set up and handles our household shared network. It is so nice to have an IT department at home and work! Thank goodness for those who understand computers and networks!

Today’s infographic from Orsyp details the troubleshooting process for a DNS error. Seasoned IT professionals can probably breeze through this infographic quickly and easily, understanding and relating to every point. The less tech savvy, myself very much included, may need a few good reads before understanding much. Luckily, after said reads, today’s infographic can become a helpful guide to those days when the technology you rely on begins to fail. I suggest giving today’s infographic a thorough read. You might just have a clue next time you are unable to join your company’s network! [Via]

Alright, so let’s say you’re a little late to the game and you’ve just seen either Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and you’re wondering to yourself, “What was up with all of those different sized people? And why were they all called weird names like ‘elf’ and ‘dwarf’?” Well never fear dear reader, today’s infographic is here to help you sort out the differences in the inhabitants of Middle Earth, both large and small.

Today’s infographic comes to us from Yahoo! Movies and it’s there to give moviegoers who are unfamiliar with J.R.R. Tolkien’s work a sort of visual guide to the characters they’ll encounter in the films. In the Lord of the Rings films and The Hobbit, elves (Elrond once again being played by Hugo Weaving in The Hobbit) are, besides humans, the tallest of Middle Earth’s races and they’re also immortal and never sleep.

For more fun info on Middle Earth and its people have a look at the infographic below and have a great day! [Via]

Job Interviewing 101 [infographic]

I’m a fairly recent grad, and as disheartening as this may be, it was nowhere near easy to land a job–or even an interview–after graduation. I blanketed resumes, stalked people on LinkedIn, and scoured through company’s websites, only to receive no call back. I felt compelled on a daily basis, to march straight into the office of every organization’s CEO and riddle him or her in a distressed, but respectful tone, “Tell me how on earth am I supposed to gain the required experience to work in an organization such as your own if no one will let me gain it. Please, I am dying to know!” Then, after living out that fantasy in my head, I would continue submitting resumes online. It’s really the only thing to do, keep trying, and when you finally get an interview, kill it.

The organization I am currently working for threw every type of interview and interviewer my way, and had I not been ready for the worst, I wouldn’t have gotten the job. This infographic outlines the different types of interviews and the various versions of interviewers that come a long with them. Be prepared, don’t let “The Nice Guy” throw any curve balls. They are more times than not, the trickiest!

How Iran Censors The Internet [infographic]

March 15, 2013 |  by  |  Government, Politics  |  1 Comment

Internet freedom is a luxury in America. As much as our government tries to restrict our websites and download clients, we usually let freedom ring. Legislature like SOPA and PIPA have been struck down in the name of a free internet. If you want to know my take I am very pro internet freedom.

When the Stop Internet Piracy Act was up for a vote in Washington, I wrote a post about how the bill’s implication’s could even affect Daily Infographic. I was and am still against censoring or regulating the internet. Iran is a country with a ruler that has most of the power. Internet censorship is a horrible problem in some countries and really shows how the country’s government is favored by the population.

Right now North Korea is having another temper tantrum and is threatening nuclear war. Unfortunately they threaten the US all of the time and experts have said the threats are to keep the DPRK’s citizens too preoccupied with possible war that they forget about the country’s problems. I believe there is a power struggle and the newly crowned leader is using his father’s tactics to slow down a coup. But what do I know, except that North Korea censors their internet extremely strictly. [Via]
