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]

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]

The mobile market has billions of customers, and although it may seem as though a majority portion is smart phones. The truth is only about a couple million of the billion of mobile phones sold are smart phones, these are typically the phones like the iPhone, anything running android, blackberry, and Microsoft’s phones as well. Although the market share of smart phones is small, the revenue they pull in is not. Why is this? Mainly because of apps, revenue may include in app purchases, initial app fee, or revenue from in app ads. Even though you may not be a smart phone owner yourself, you undoubtedly have heard have apps. Today’s infographic contains statistics of the different app markets and their impact. [via]

Save the iPhone, Save the World [infographic]

I’m not sure if you caught my allusion to Heroes, but if you did it is in reference to last Friday’s post on Super Powers and their Heroes. Now moving on to why 2nd-hand iPhones may solve global warming.

As much as Steve Jobs would like his iPhone to cure our world’s fever, it isn’t going to. Re-selling electronics will help reduce our carbon-footprint, but not eliminate it.

Trading in electronics always sucks because you never seem to get a fair price. Here on Ebay’s new Instant Sale, you can instantly get a fair amount of money in your PayPal account by selling new, old or damaged electronics.

Fair is a loose word. I had a crack in my Ipod touch, sold it on Craigslist for $60. The amount I would have gotten on Ebay’s Instant Sale is only $20. The only reason this Instant Sale thing might take off is how convenient it is. Free shipping, free removal of personal data, and no PayPal or Ebay fees. It was a hassle to go through all of the bullshit Craigslist made me do to make a post. Then I had to communicate with a guy who couldn’t speak English and meet him really sketchily in a Barnes & Noble’s parking lot. Although, it did turn out well and I made 200% more money than I would have on Ebay.

Will I ever use Instant Sale? Probably not. Is it completely useless? No, it just depends on how lazy someone is. [Via]

Thatsa Good Pizza! [infographic]

Dough, tomato sauce, and some cheese is all you need to make one of the most popular dishes in the United States of America, if not the world. Contrary to popular belief, pizza was not invented by the Italians. In fact, pizza has been around since the Neolithic time period, a time when it was still considered a food of the poor people. This contrasts today where even the finest restaurants serve “classy” pizza– for example California Pizza Kitchen which is an upscale restaurant when compared to something like Pizza Hut. The Ancient Greeks even had an early version of the pizza; they used to put oils, herbs, and cheese on their bread.

Before I forget, like us on FACEBOOK! I have heard of some pretty odd and interesting toppings on pizza here in the states, but none as weird as the toppings under the “Global Toppings” section of today’s infographic. As you may already know, Japan has a large fishing community and is famous for its sushi. However, the use of sea creatures does end there; if you ever find yourself in Japan you should try some squid on your pizza. Some other sea creatures you may find on your pizza in other countries include shrimp in Australia and eels in China. Amsterdam takes two of America’s favorite foods and adds them together by using hot dogs as a type of topping. This infographic is definitely worth your time. After all, the pizza industry is a 30 billion dollar industry. [via]
