WHAT!? HUH? How loud is too loud? [infographic]

I know for a fact that my hearing is not at one-hundred percent. I have been to way too many loud concerts without any ear protection. I simply believe it isn’t hip to have earplugs in at concerts – I think everyone feels this way. Maybe stuffing your eardrum at concerts will become a fad, otherwise I’ll stop being cool around 25 and start to plug it up.

There are some sounds that earplugs may not help: blue whales by chance. Blue whales are actually incredibly loud and are only quieter than some extreme natural disasters. Okay, I lied… Besides being softer than meteors, earthquakes and volcanos, blue whales are also pretty closed-mouthed when up against 2,000 pounds of TNT. Still, these whales are so loud I’ve been led to believe they can communicate between oceans, but don’t quote me on that.

I do think it’s funny that the loudest concerts in history were all by bands formed over 30 years ago. If someone tried to pull that in present day there would be a few thousand lawsuits for ear trouble arguing it is the band’s responsibility to provide ear protection for the crowd– and you already know who would win.

Today’s fascinating infographic was produced by our friends at SonicElectronix.com. Remember, if you ever acquire some speakers from Sonic Electronix, please, don’t ruin your ears! [Sonic Electronix]

Naked in a Dream? [infographic]

Have you ever wondered what dreams mean? Today’s infographic is all about finding the meaning behind them. Although it may not be scientifically proven, today’s infographic does a good job of putting meaning to dreams. In a psychology class I learned that dreams may actually have no meaning, they may just be random firings of our brains. When we sleep, our brain does not sleep with us, if it did, we would die. When we sleep our brain keeps working and fires random thoughts, not necessarily related to anything. However that is just one take, remember, we still do not know much about dreams.

As you may know REM or rapid eye movement is the deepest level of sleep and is the level at which most dreams happen. Have you ever found yourself naked in your own dream? Well you may be feeling vulnerable or even freedom, apparently one thing can mean complete opposites, like in a chase dream. In which case you may be feeling anxiety or ambition. Whether you agree that dreams have meaning or not you should give today’s infographic a good look, it is very interesting. Don’t forget to like us on Facebook! [via]

Apocalypse!: A World Without Google [infographic]

For as long as I can remember, if I have not known something I have resorted to “googling” it. There once was a time whenever you had a question you had to go down to the library, find a book, and then within the book, the answer. Now all we have to do is type a couple of keywords into Google and you have access to thousands of websites with answers. Not only has Google provided us with the greatest research tool, but they offer many other tools, such as calendars, email, and what is essentially their equivalent of the Microsoft Office Suite. Anyway, we all know what Google has done, but where would we be without them?

Who would be top dog? Would it be Yahoo, or Bing, or some other one like Blekko? Like Apple, Google used minimalism and a good user interface to win their market share. Without Google we would lose image search, Google maps, and where would analytics be? A website’s prowess is judged by where they are in the Google rankings. The Internet would be a very different place without Google, that is for sure. Like us on Facebook! [via]

Mozilla just came out with Firefox version 4, but I haven’t had the time to check it out. If one of y’all have, let me know how it is in the comments. How does it compare to Chrome? Is it faster and as easy to use? I love Firefox, but Chrome is so user-friendly! [Via]

Who the Duck Needs a Camera When you Have an iPhone?

April 4, 2011 |  by  |  Tech  |  1 Comment

Before I read this infographic, if you had walked up to me on the street and told me that Apple is the biggest camera manufacturer I would have slapped you. Nikon and Canon are the two powerhouses when it comes to cameras: Nikon has fantastic lenses and Canon makes great camera bodies. However, more and more photos are being taken with iPhones these days, and why not? They offer a five megapixel resolution, five times digital zoom, autofocus, and a flash (on the iPhone 4). What more could your average photographer ask for? Five megapixels is nothing to laugh at either- my Nikon D50 only offers six and it is a DSLR (one of those fancy ones that you can change the lenses on). For an iPhone DSLR comparison click here.

The convenience of the iPhone has the quality of Nikons and Canons so far beat that at one point it was the most popular camera used to post on Flickr. The iPhone also offers many apps to enhance your photos without much work on your part. What once required a whole different type of camera can now be done using the 360 Panorama app. The 360 Panorama app actually takes several photos and stitches them together in real time. No longer do you have to learn about aperture, or the right lens, or lighting- the iPhone provides you with all the apps needed to do those things for you. However, if you are truly interested in photography I would recommend using a real camera, not the one built into your iPhone. [via]
