Buying a New Car [infographic]

Buying a car can be a job within itself. With hours of research, days of car hunting at dealerships and countless test-drives – it is one of the most important purchases next to buying a house. Today’s infographic gives a unique view into the demographics of today’s auto industry and a few tips when dealing with salesmen.

I have lucked out with the car I have. This summer after an outrageous repair quote, I was almost sure I would have to go car shopping. Luckily the dealership was just trying to rip me off (not surprised) and I got it fixed for a fraction of the price. I did learn this summer that my care won’t last forever. It is over a decade old now and may only have a few years left. I’ve watched so many friends and family members search for the right car – always taking them months or even years to find one. For me, the two most important things in a vehicle is that it must represent my personality and be able to keep up with my lifestyle. I understand why people take such precious time picking out their new ride.

Now that the American car companies are back on their feet, a ton of quality vehicles are being produced in our country. I’m a sucker for the Japanese models, but in a year or two I’ll leave no stone unturned. [AutoComparison.com]

Here’s a great and interesting infographic that everyone can benefit from: bad posture. Back problems are a common ailment in society today. Even at 21, I’ve had some terrible knots in my back between the shoulder blades. Perhaps it’s the stress our generation is going through, or 8am-4pm desk jobs; back pain is on the rise. According to this infographic, bad posture is the culprit.

I’ve been a cellist for a long time now, so I defiantly know my back pain stems from poor posture during rehearsals. However, I can at least find some relief from today’s infographic. Not only does it what list what creates bad posture, it also lays out some great tips on how to help improve it and alleviate pain. [via]

A Storm of Confusion: What People Really Think About Cloud Computing [infographic]

“What is the cloud?” I hear that question a lot when speaking to my non-nerd friends. I try to explain it the best I can, but I usually just call it magic and point them to Google Music. The cloud is used almost daily by all of us. We even have our own Daily Infographic server in the cloud.

Two years ago at South by Southwest there was plenty of talk about how the cloud was going to revolutionize the technology industry. Two years ago the cloud was already going strong, and if the techies at South By didn’t know the vast usage of the cloud two years ago, it explains why 32% of the population still think the cloud “is a thing of the future”.

I am taking an information and technology class at my university and the cloud has been a big topic. I was surprised when I was one of the only students who actually knew what the cloud was and we definitely had a few people pretend to understand it in class. No surprise when the data shows over 20% of Americans had pretended as well.

The cloud is with us everyday and will continue to be there. Always raining information on its patrons.

College Student Spending Habits [infographic]

As a college student I know a lot of the spending habits without looking at today’s infographic. Discretionary spending is an area I know way too many students pour money into. Bars, fast food, movies, and activities can really add up, and I’m not an exception.

A part of the data that surprised me was the fact that students spend more on room and board than tuition. Attending college in a smaller town, my rent and food prices are pretty cheap. Tuition is usually a few hundred dollars more a year, but for those living in a large city – rent prices can be double or triple what I pay.

Financial education is very important and even though financial responsibility has been stressed my whole life, a ton of other students never had the privilege. I know to never get a credit card, only spend what you make and to live within my means. Credit card companies set up shop on campus and tell kids they can have free money. Why say no to that? Another big part of financial responsibility is keeping up with monthly fees. Car insurance, bank fees and even Netflix can be reassessed and renegotiated. Switching insurance providers and dropping your cable company can lead to hundreds of dollars saved in only a few hours. [Nationwide]
