There have been quite a few valuations of rather large tech companies lately. With LinkedIn’s recent IPO and Microsoft’s acquisition of Skype, just to name a few. Are these companies worth what they been valued at or is there going to be another tech bubble bust like what happened in the early 2000s?
I’ve caught a lot of flack in recent weeks from friends for my growing addiction to Empire Avenue. (an addiction to which I am only too happy to admit I have) I’ve experienced a lot of mental discomfort over spending a good amount of time on a service that may or not be beneficial to...
This NBC12 field reporter thought a quick shot with a friendly camel would be easy. Sometimes the easy assignments turn into the more interesting ones. I like how the cameraman was able to keep filming and help her with one hand…and how she asked if he was still rolling. Anything for the shot, right?
I love me some word clouds. They’re a great quick way to show what people are talking about and can give you a good insight to what’s “hot” or “trending”. Neoformix has put together this awesome tool to show us just that for Twitter accounts. This is a fun a interesting way to see just...
Remember the simpler times, when your mailbox (your physical mailbox) was filled with AOL CDs and floppy disks? Oh those were the days. A 3 1/2 would hold 1.44 MB…oh man, imagine trying to use one of those now. Well here is an awesome chart showing the evolution of storage and how far we’ve come,...
I’m a huge fan of the movie Catch Me If You Can about the con artist (and fugitive) Frank William Abagnale, Jr., who was played by Leonardo Dicaprio. I’m wondering when they’ll be making the movie of Bin Laden and who will be playing him. Well the folks over at Good Magazine have put together this...
Flickr is the #1 stop for the average “photographer”. It’s easy to use, free and has the best options. It’s a fantastic service for the casual weekend photog. Well one such user (SoldierAnt) made this awesome graphic showing the various components of Flickr and how they are utilized. [click image to view full-size]
Google is the largest search engine and a force to be reckoned with. They’ve got their virtual foot in almost every door. From the coupon game to their recent addition of their cloud music service, they do whatever they want, when they want to. Check out this great graphic from Pingdom which show all the...
For all the time, work, money and effort, Christopher Knight put into this great commercial, here’s hoping he got the position at Rockingham County School Board of Education. I guess it just goes to show you that when it comes to advertising (and most other things too), you get what you pay for.
This is an amazing interactive graph of most of the major browsers and their growing (or shrinking) influence from 2002 – 2009. I know it’s not giving you the data from current times, but this showcases how they came to be what they are now. Click through to see the cool concept by Axiis.
