Here’s a fact you never knew: in 2007, the business card industry was a 12 billion dollar industry. Yup, billion. Since the 19th century business cards have been passed out as a form of communication and marketing and is still growing today. Business cards now are more than a name and number. Personal twitter, Facebook and Linked-in accounts are present on a good majority of business card now-a-days.

Many young professionals think having an innovative business card design is pivotal to gaining important people’s attention. People will use metal or plastic for their cards instead of paper or even change the function to even include a catapult.

The innovative progression of business cards will continue as long as society keeps looking at them as a form of entertainment as well as a marketing tool. I can’t wait to see where business cards are like in 50 years. [MOO]

Google chrome usage has exploded since 2008, and now in 2012 is just behind firefox in total usage (I’m still stuck in Safari). Internet explorer has faced a steep fall, and is now behind Chrome and Firefox. As for screen resolution, the trend is simply upwards. Screen resolution has gotten higher and higher, which is good for all of the Netflix I watch on my laptop. What browser do you prefer? Are you a browser trend follower or are you like me and stick with what you have? [Via]

Apple’s Explosion [Infographic]

In my early teenage years, when I was first getting familiar with the internet, it was hard to dispute that Microsoft and its user-friendly operating system, Windows, were the kings of the home computer world. Not only had it become largely affordable, but Windows had everything that consumers who were new to computers could hope for: browsing, email, games, word processing, instant messaging and many other functions.

Throughout the 1990′s Microsoft held its ground as the dominant force in personal computer sales. In the late 90′s and leading into the 2000′s, though, Apple (who had been active throughout the same time period, but who were somewhat less successful) came back into power with the device that would come to be known as the iMac.

The iMac came as a breath of fresh air to many computer users; it not only had the same functionality as the average PC but it also had a unique shape and customizable colors. While those things didn’t come into play on a functional level, they did provide consumers with enough incentive to start buying Mac products again and eventually helped Apple rise back into prominence.

More than 10 years later Apple is annually selling almost as many devices (including computers, iPads and iPhones) as cars worldwide. Unsurprisingly, they are also one of the most successful businesses in the world. The sum of their total sales in 2011 was an incredible $128 billion. To put it in perspective, their 2011 sales amounted to more than the GDP of 160 nations worldwide.

Communication is the process of conveying information. Almost all species have some sort of communication system. However, successful communication is the trait that has made humans the most successful species.

Today’s inforgraphic shows a timescale of how communication has evolved over time. It’s hard to imagine communication long before the hustle and bustle of email and text messaging. Technological communication has grown exponentially, leaving snail mail to be a thing of the past.

Facebook and Twitter is the most popular form of communication right now. These social giants are changing the game of communication. Today’s communication seems to only be in the form of short spurts with hashtags or tagging. Social media has taken the complexity out of communication, it is no longer organic, but short and to the point. Today’s style of communication represents the direction society a technology is headed, towards a more efficient form of communication. [via]
