The World is Coming to an End: #Blame Twitter [Infographic]

It’s the end of the world as we know it, my friends, and it seems Twitter is to blame. It’s true: the social networking site, which has attained over 500 million users since its inception in March 2006, is bringing about the apocalypse, and we’ve got the evidence to prove it.

Below is an infographic by Tim Cooley, winner of PosterBrain’s ‘Design the Future’ Infographic Contest. Entitled #Blame Twitter, it brings to light hard-hitting facts about Twitter’s troubling toll on the environment and our health. Did you know, for example, that for every 18,000 tweets sent out by Twitter users 1 hectare of forest is lost? That means, as the infographic bravely points out, nearly 13,000 hectares of forest is lost every single day.

This, I’m sure you’ll agree, is an appalling, nay harrowing figure. And it’s only one of the many ugly facts presented by Mr. Cooley, whose ultimate aim is to bring the horrendous hazards of Twitter to public knowledge. Hopefully, people will listen this time, and finally see the popular internet site for the abhorrent, world-endangering tool that it unquestionably is. If not, our end may come much sooner than anticipated.

Note: #Blame Twitter is of course a parody infographic. “All claims in this infographic are obviously false in nature and are solely intended for the comedic entertainment of readers,” says Cooley. “We <3 Twitter.” [Read more...]

Siri, Why Don’t You Understand Me? [Infographic]

For those unfamiliar with murderous computer system HAL 9000 from Stanley Kubrick’s science-fiction masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey,” Siri is a totally cool, totally handy and totally unterrifying piece of artificial intelligence. Launched in October 2011 as part of the iOS 5 system for Apple’s then-new iPhone 4S, Siri (Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface) is a personal assistant that fits right in your front pocket. With speech recognition software built into its noggin, Siri has the ability to perform multiple tasks for its user with just the utterance of a few brief commands. Among many others, these tasks include making phone calls, sending text messages, surfing the net, recalling stored information and even recommending nearby restaurants – yes, Siri knows where to wine and dine.

It all seems very helpful, but some iPhone users are not so satisfied with Siri’s system, or perhaps don’t trust it as much as Apple may wish them to. This is shown in a new infographic from OnlineDegrees.com, who take a look at statistical data, opinion polls and interesting facts surrounding Siri and its users, as you can see below. The results are fairly mixed, but it looks like Siri is nonetheless here to stay, and may even take over human society to become our vicious technological rulers – all hail Siri! [Read more...]

What your Lingerie Says About You [Infographic]

What does your lingerie say about you, baby? Have you ever stopped and asked that question? Welp, maybe you should. Here’s why: It turns out that people mainly purchase lingerie for three reasons.
