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?

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]

Remembering Sexy Librarians [infographic]

April 2, 2011 |  by  |  Education  |  No Comments

For the longest time librarians held the key to whatever question you had, books. However with the rise of the internet and technology the librarian has been swept under the rug. The librarian like any other job is having to modernize and rather than be librarians in the common sense they are becoming information specialists. Today’s infographic is all about the librarians of the past and some of their contributions to the field.

The first library was started in 1731 by Benjamin Franklin. Today that library holds thousands of historical manuscripts including the Mayflower Compact along with many items once having belonged to Franklin himself. Although female librarians are common today the first female did not work as a librarian until 1954. Continue on to find these facts and many others. Hope you enjoy today’s infographic and have a great Saturday! [Master Degree Online]

Rockin’ that Mattress [infographic]

Since you all seem to like sleep infographics, for example this one, I bring you another one. As many of you know we spend one third of our lifetimes sleeping, but did you know that is 20% less than we used to sleep 100 years ago? Today’s infographic is brought to us byCoast to Coast. Today’s sleep infographic offers something a little different than previous ones. As you will see right at the top there is information about the different types of mattresses and their pros and cons.

One thing that really caught my eye in this infographic was the magnetic bed, so I decided to do a little more research. The bed can reportedly hold 900 kgs which is about 2,000 pounds, as you can imagine these are some pretty strong magnets. Due to the magnets it is recommended you no longer have anything metallic in your house and convert to all plastic. The bed is made by the Dutch and costs 1,200,00 euros which is 1,699,143.91 American dollars. However if a cool floating bed is not cool enough for you, how about a bed 10 feet by 12 feet? As a final note, happy April Fools Day! Don’t forget that April 2nd is Pillow Fight Day! [Coast to Coast]
