Working a 9-to-5 is something that most of can relate to. Every day is either good or bad or bleh! But regardless of whatever the work day has in store for us, we seem to always let our minds get ahead of us. Our minds often ramble on about the most random things. Unfortunately, this means that our minds are not engaged in our work. That’s okay though.

Not all of us need to be 100% in our work everyday of the week. It’s definitely okay to ponder on who would be your best your ally when the zombie apocalypse strikes while you are at work. I have run this scenario and many like it countless times in my head, as I am sure many of you all do too. Zombies are potentially a real threat so it is important to think about what you might do and who you might partner with in the office.

Also a grave concern in the work place; realizing that you work too much! Sure you have bills to pay! We all do, hello?! But don’t stress about it. You got it covered homie. Don’t be that work-a-holic that stays late and ends up late to the party in your work clothes. Keep those at home.

While at work, ponder on the fact that you are dope as hell and that you have a life to live after the monotony. [via]

justAd is an interesting advertising company that marries the idea of the ever-growing cloud-based platform with mobile, tablet, and mulit-screen devices. justAd, founded in 2009, has enabled advertisers to promote themselves with stunning media. The following infographic is a representation of data collected from 150 mobile ads from 2013.

As far as mobile devices are concerned, simple actions speak grand volumes. Most mobile interaction consisted of basically just tapping the screen, which makes a lot of sense in my opinion. When you throw in swiping and dragging, things just get complicated. And shaking and scratching? How much trauma are these ads going to give our phones?

But in all seriousness, making these ad units is no joke. You really have to sit down and devote some time to producing a great ad. Just a simple banner takes, on average, a full hour to generate. And if you want it to be an expandable banner, you have to devote and extra two hours of tedious work just to pull it off. Making an interactive video takes a few days, which is actually pretty impressive. I’m not very ad savvy, so I would need at least a month to pull anything like that off. And it’s interesting to see that most of these ads were created by the customers themselves.

In 2013, 80% of the ad units were customer produced using justAd’s self service format. So here’s to hard-working advertisers trying to get the word out. Cheers! [via]

The Learning Power of Legos [infographic]

Nothing hurts more than stepping on a Lego, or finding out that your parent sold all your Legos in a garage sale.

Those two things are the worst things that can happen, ever. Unless you include the horrors of being gifted Mega Bloks instead of Legos, because adults don’t realize that there is a HUGE difference.

At any Lego store there will be some amazing Lego display structure, and it leaves one to wonder if the employees were given a full day to simply build this, Eiffel tower, Chewbacca, or space ship. Nope, I assume that there is some fancy Lego building machine that does it all for them and steals all the fun out of working at a Lego store. Just like finding out that Santa doesn’t exist.

Fuck Bionicle. Why did Lego feel like they needed this combination of K’nex and their own perfect work, The Lego block. Post Bionicle, Legos have not been the same. Anytime a new Lego set is bought, the buyer will see that there are too many unique pieces that can only be used to build the specific model bought. So that buying Legos will become nothing more than the equivalent of putting together a piece of Ikea furniture. This leaves me wondering if they ever collaborate.

The Benefits of Massage [infographic]

I’m sure almost everyone has experienced a muscle knot sometime in their life. If you’ve never had one, consider yourself lucky. That dull, achy pain can really become a distraction and ruin your day.

For some reason, I have a series of 3-5 muscle knots that seem to accumulate along my right shoulder blade. Since I’ve started my new job, my knots have decided to rear their ugly heads and make my workdays extremely uncomfortable. I usually take a 5 minute break just to try and massage my knots out on a wall corner (I get a lot of strange looks for that).

Finally, over Christmas break, I asked my mom to try and work at least ONE knot out. It took a heating pad, massage oil, and 3 days of kneading to get all of 5 of them out. My mom made a comment about working a monthly massage into my budget, and it’s something I’m really considering because I feel like a million bucks now that my knots are gone.

Here is an infographic about the benefits of massage for all of you suffering from muscle knots! [via]

The Seismic Shift of IT Operations [infographic]

The achievements and advancements in technology that have been made over the years is truly astounding. In today’s society it’s hard to imagine a world without prevalent computers. Our infographic of the day informs us of the “seismic shift” that IT (which stands for ‘information technology’) operations have made from before the 1960s, to current day. We’ve gone from relying on scattered paper files to digital storage (which saves trees as well as your work!).

Good old Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, who “were inspired by the work being done at Xerox Labs” helped make computers become office friendly in the 1970s; the 1980s marked the birth of the modern desktop; and according to the graphic below the data centers of today have essentially been reborn. We “use server virtualization to further increase productivity, efficiency, and data recovery,” and we’ve adopted “cloud technology” which “makes it easier and more efficient to share files.”

It’s more simple than ever to get organized, and today’s infographic informs of a “high performance analytic appliance software that processes up to 500 billion point of sale records in a matter of seconds.” I’m sure this sounds oh-so-appealing to business owners.

Check out today’s infographic to see just how far technology has come, particularly in the work place. [Via]
