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]

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]

iPad Education Dilemma [infographic]

Technology and education go hand in hand in our modern society. Even high school students can’t survive without a computer. Computers are used to research for projects, type papers and assignments and to chat with friends on facebook;). With the introduction of the iPad, Apple has had the vision to use the iPad to innovate the way schools use technology.

Apple has introduced a software to create textbooks for the iPad. High school students can now obtain textbooks on their iPad, instead of recieving hard copy textbooks. The cost is a big deterrent to implementing this new way to access schoolwork. To start fresh, using textbooks is 41% cheaper than iPads. This is a huge cost increase for an institution that is currently facing major budget cuts that have lead to teacher layoffs.

How do you feel about iPad textbooks? I personally understand the benefits to college use, cutting the high textbook costs for students, considering how many college students already have iPads, but I don’t see the practicality for high school students. What do you think? [Via]

Sports & Social Media [infograpic]

So apparently at some point in humanity’s short existence there was this thing called the radio and people used to listen to it for things like plays, book readings, and SPORTS! If you’re shocked by the previous sentence I don’t blame you, today’s technology gives us so many alternatives to radio. Although recent studies show radio listeners are growing in numbers once again, me being one of those thanks to Austin’s comedy radio station 102.7. In today’s internet driven society social media has climbed to the top as the number one source for the average person’s sports fix. I leave you with two things I found interesting in today’s infographic, social media is used most by those watching the game on television. Secondly, sport social media junkies do not seem to mind advertisements. Example being someone you follow on Twitter plugging a product, as the infographic says “they’d probably feel different if it was being e-mailed to them.” [via]
