The world revolves around beer. Beer has been a significant part of human civilization for years and years, and continues to be one of the most culturally inspiring beverages. Today’s infographic will be looking at a specific subculture of beer: craft beers.

Craft beers (the beer I like to call “underground beer”) is made in microbreweries. Microbreweries are known for their dedication to the style in which the beer is brewed and the uniqueness of the taste.  It is called a craft beer, because it is enjoyed for its “brew value” as I call it. Craft beers are generally independently brewed as opposed to being just a corporate product.

About 36% of consumers drink craft beer. It has become a lot more popular amongst the younger generations with 43% of millenials digging it versus the 32% of baby boomers.

If you’re looking to get your brew on the market, this infographic suggests that you show your customers how well you know your beer by pairing it with certain food items. For instance, a wheat craft beer might go really well with sushi, while an IPA would complement curry.

Also, if you’re serious about starting your own microbrewery, now would be the time to do so. Sales of craft beers are expected to triple  by 2017. I am by no means an economist, but more is good, right? Right. [via]

Mac Parts and Repair Problems [infographic]

One day I sat my computer down in a violent way. From this point on whenever I turned my computer into power mode it would make a sound similar to that of a bird chirping while attempting to fly, but then the bird dies. Like any college student I shrugged this off and said “oh well, guess I’ll use the library’s computers.” Even after I found out that the hard drive was the only thing broken on the entire computer I ended up at Best Buy getting ready to buy a new computer. Directly before throwing $1,200 of my parents money on a new Lenovo Yoga 2 I realized that a mere mortal like myself could potentially change the hard drive without buying a new laptop, and without paying a service charge. Thus began my journey.

This journey involves YouTube, a knife, a screw driver, and $1,000 worth of savings. I fixed my computer, it felt great, journey over. If you own a Mac, your computer could also break. Use macpartsonline.com to get any parts you need to fix it yourself. I promise it may be the most empowering thing you do all year.

The Tastes of Mainland South-East Asia [infographic]

Today’s infographic, brought to you by My Adventure Store, is probably one of my favorite infographics to date because it’s all about the delicious food South East Asia has to offer. Specifically, it details both of my absolute favorite foods: pho and pad thai. I remember my first pho and pad thai experience: during the first year as a residential assistant, my sophomore year of college. There were quite a few nights a month I was required to either stay in the building or stay within a 3 mile radius of the dorm in case of “emergencies” (none of which ever happened unless you count burned popcorn setting off alarms). On the nights I was allowed my 3 mile radius  of freedom, I would saunter across the street to the dingy Vietnamese place that everyone seemed to always rave about.

Feeling overwhelmed with the amount of options on the menu, I opted for traditional pad thai- as requested my waiter. My life was forever changed that lonely night. I continued ordering the same thing until I was brave enough to try the pho, and BAM! It became my new favorite food. Now, I’m always in the mood for pho and am constantly on the lookout for new pho restaurants to try out. Since two out of the five dishes mentioned on this infographic are my favorite dishes, this infographic must have great taste. Therefore, I’m making it one of my goals to try the rest of the dishes mentioned. I encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and do the same! You might discover your next favorite dish!

The Future of the Internet of Things [infographic]

Ever wonder why Google is installing extreamly fast gigabit internet infrastructure when the average person needs 200x less speed? It is because of the future of the Internet of Things. In less than 10 years, the internet will not just be for your phone or laptop, everything will be online.

I’m talking about your car, fridge, tv, blender, air conditioner, front door, and even your wallet. This inevitable future is why google is starting today with affordable gigabit internet. This new wave of device overload will open up revenue and advertising streams to a whole new level.

Today’s infographic states that in 2020, every human being on earth will be connected to 10 separate devices. I know I’m already using five and I bet one of the most prominent technology coming up soon will be wearable tech. If its for exercising, sports, general information or just making phone calls, wearable tech will be an exciting addition today’s digital arsenal.

Be ready for the future, its going to be here in no time. The corporations of our world are already preparing for it, it just depends if society will be ready when they are. [Xievly]

Copyright vs “illegal download” [infographic]

Pinterest

So often in college I hear students talking about how they just saw the latest movie or how they are watching the latest TV shows episode. They don’t have cable and they are too broke to be going to the movies all the time so how are they doing it? They are downloading illegally and they talk about it like its nothing.

The United States is one of the countries found in this infographic that has signed treaties attempting to protect intellectual property and copyrighted material. But there is still large numbers of people downloading. It’s like just like everything else, people hear about the horror stories and think it can’t happen to them. I’m sure the 15 year old in Sweden didn’t think he would be facing jail time and Joel Tenenbaum didn’t think he’d have to pay well over half-a-million for downloading 30 songs.

There are serious repercussions for acting in this fashion. 34 of the some of the world’s most developed countries are taking measures to safeguard copyrighted material. Many of these countries are signing multiple treaties.  Enforcement is more difficult when you have signatories acting relaxed against perpetrators. One of those countries, I won’t say which, is the country most looked at for copyright infringement yet everyone talks about that country likes its awful.

If you are illegally downloading or uploading you are not helping the economy. You are harming the very industries that you are looking to for entertainment. You’re putting yourself in harms way. [via]
