Although console games today are still selling remarkably well in some cases (notably the Call of Duty and Halo franchises), it seems that they are quickly being caught up to by mobile and tablet games. Mobile and tablet games offer the advantages of being both numerous and inexpensive; 67% of tablet users spend their time playing a game.
Today’s infographic from DailyFinance.com outlines the boom in mobile and online gaming as well as speculates the future of console gaming, with the new Sony and Microsoft consoles supposedly scheduled to be released late in 2013 and the Wii U already selling 400,000 consoles in its first week on the shelves.

For Christmas this year, my great aunt gave the gift of donations to a mission helping those who do not have access to drinking water. In some countries, many hours are spent everyday getting water that might not even be safe to drink. While today’s infographic focuses on a part of Americans’ ecological footprint, it is largely connected to those across seas who are not as fortunate as we.
The water crisis is affecting the world in many different ways and is an issue that needs more attention. As the infographic points out, less than one percent of the earth’s water is drinkable, and a lot of people do not have easy access to it. What would the possibilities be for the populations having to deal with this everyday if they did have access to water that would not cause disease or illness? The organization Charity Water would argue that the possibilities are endless as they assert that water affects everything.
So, with this infographic, perhaps you will be able to focus more on your daily impact on the water crisis. It’s a frightening thing to contemplate, but our usage of resources affect each other greatly, especially when having to do with water. More for me equals less for you, and vise versa. If this topic interests you, I have put an informational video at the bottom by Charity Water. Have a good rest of your weekend and Happy New Year! [via]

Get ready for the thousands of 2012 infographics we’re about to unleash on you all. Actually I hope our writers stay away from the onslaught of ‘best of 2012′ graphics that will flood the internets. I obviously am not. Today’s graphic will be the first, but not the last to remind you of Gangnam Style, Shades of Grey and Felix Baumgartner.
I hope you had an amazing 2012. Mine wasn’t too bad, my house only flooded twice! This year has been full of ups and downs. Hurricane Sandy, four more years of Barack, London Olympics, loss of Steve Jobs, legalization of marijuana, uneducated Mayans and a plethora of other moments in history. He’s to 2013 you guys.

Did you know our bones are four times stronger than concrete? I didn’t, but I’m not surprised – the human body is a magnificent thing and today’s graphic will blow your mind a little more.
I have always been amazed at the ability of our body to heal itself. Massive cuts, broken bones and nasty viruses happen all the time, but we seem to usually get better. I’m sure back before the human race figured out many of the things about modern science, healing wounds seemed a bit like magic. Now with our present understanding we can figure out weird little facts like the ones down below.
We shed over forty pounds of skin during our lifetime. That’s nasty y’all. We’re like snakes, but at least we don’t shed it all at once. I can only imagine walking around town and finding other’s skin laying around. Ewwww. [Via]Share This Infographic
There are only a few times that I break my healthy eating habits, and one of those is at the movies. I’ll order a large popcorn, then proceed to shoveling it into my mouth throughout the movie, with a few sips of soda in between. It’s so bad for you, but oh so good at the same time.
Sadly, today’s inforgaphic speaks the awful truth about the calories packing the buttery goodness of movie popcorn. The infographic also lists infomation about cinema snacks in other parts of the world as well. Unfortunately, I think I’ll begin ordering a small popcorn next time I go to the movies. Maybe ya’ll should do the same, I’m sure our bodies will thank us later. [via]Share This Infographic
