How the Internet is Killing the Planet [infographic]

We all use the internet. Is that too obvious? Well guess what, you are ruining the world you live on every time you make a google search. Does the power of the internet as a communication tool out-weigh the amount of CO2 released by us constantly using the internet?

I would think so. They say knowledge is power and the internet is pure information. Facebook has easily helped thousands of people get together and help the environment. Google maps also helps with public transportation. There is now the option to show me what bus to take, the time to be at the bus stop and also where and when to get off. Wikipedia’s reliability may be joked about, but it has proved to be just as accurate as the Encyclopedia Britannica.

I believe that without the internet our society would not have taken the steps it has on global warming. We have 100% electric cars, almost every fortune 500 company has donated some money or has marketed their product to appeal to the environmentally friendly. I think we’re on the right track, we just can’t stop now. [Via]

The Beatles, More Popular Than Jesus? [infographic]

April 25, 2011 |  by  |  Music  |  3 Comments

Have you heard of Jesus? Have you heard of The Beatles? Which one do you think is more popular? Today’s infographic compares the popularity of The Beatles to that of Jesus; definitely worth your time. The popularity of The Beatles is one that is unmatched by any other band or celebrity; how many people do you know that have had an infographic made comparing them to Jesus?

Admittedly when I was younger I was not a big fan of The Beatles, but my taste in music was also questionable- it was a time when I though Linkin Park was the shit. However, time has passed and my taste has gotten better, I realized Linkin Park was shite and The Beatles are undeniably one of the greatest, if not the greatest, band of all time. Evidenced by the amount of number ones released by the band, totaling at 20. The five songs to have held number one the longest include: Can’t Buy Me Love, Yesterday, Get Back, I Want to Hold Your Hand, and Hey Jude.

As time has passed, the popularity of The Beatles has yet to waver or even have anyone else come close to reaching it. As major music dies out and indie music becomes the new thing, it does not seem like any other musician will ever challenge their greatness. Even when discussing other greats like The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Temptations, etc., they barely hold a flame to the fame of The Beatles. However, how does Jesus fair? If I had to guess I’d say he probably puts up quite the fight. [via]

Mac People vs PC People [infographic]

My first computer was a mac and all I ever used it for was to play DinoPark Tycoon. Ever since then I’ve always been a PC person until college. When I graduated I didn’t want the temptation of playing video games on a PC laptop, so I went to Apple. I love my mac. I have never had a computer that has worked this well for this long, although I still hate Macs mostly the company behind them. A PC is such a more versatile computer. Mac has pretty limited capability and is way too overpriced, but now I’ll stop the computer war and get on to today’s infographic.

Those Mac vs PC commercials really seem to have caught the demographic they were looking for after taking a gander at this graphic. Young, hip, vegetarian liberals seem to be the number one mac fans. I’d say that guy on the commercial looks vegetarian. This graphic seems to stress the fact that mac users like design and art, but these art enthusiasts are not just amateur fans. There are a bunch of software from Adobe and other companies that specifically use macs and have for years and years. This software is usually about art, design, film editing, et cetera. This is probably the main reason why Mac users are so artsy. [Via]

Can Facebook Affect Your College Admission? [infographic]

As everyone knows Facebook is virtually in everything these days, even making it’s way into college admissions. In fact 80% of America’s top colleges are using social media as a form of recruitment. No longer is it simply the achievements you have received in high school that are looked at by colleges, but your Facebook profile is as well. Universities state that the Facebook profile is in a medium to high range of priority in evaluating a candidate for their school. [via]

Keeping it Green [infographic]

April 20, 2011 |  by  |  Tech  |  No Comments

In keeping with the green theme of today I thought I would share today’s infographic entitled “How Green is the iPhone?” Feel free to look at yesterday’s infographic for further information of the green iPhone. If you have ever seen an advertisement for an Apple product you know that they like selling how green their products are, but how green are they really? Each iPhone produces 45 kilograms of carbon dioxid, 57% of which is released during production. In 2010 the iPhones purchased are responsible for 2,350 million kilograms of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere. However, Apple, is attempting to reduce the amount of CO? evidenced by an 18% reduction in emissions in the iPhone 4.

Apple is not the only one that should be expected to go green. We, the consumer, should be doing our part as well. Currently only about 10% of phones are recycled, of the 47 million iPhones sold in 2010 only 4,700,000 were recycled. Which is minuscule when compared to the 42,300,000 that were trashed. Apple in fact offers free recycling of their phones. Happy holiday to all of you out there! [via]
