Small Businesses and the Social Media Game

Open for Small Business

The United States hit its stride and really started proving out the concepts of pure capitalism when it embraced small business growth. While big companies have always played a role, it has been shown that small businesses are the ones that drive the economy. As small business numbers improve, the economy improves. As small business numbers fall, the economy falls. The same cannot be said about large corporations other than the catastrophes attached to recent real estate an automotive challenges.

Yet Another Samsung vs Apple Comparison

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

If you couldn’t tell by the headline, I’ve grown pretty sick of these. Yes, we know. Samsung and Apple hate each other. They’re the two big dogs in the kennel. They own the smartphone market. They’re mortal enemies. Blah blah blah.

But wait! This infographic is actually pretty decent. It isn’t completely slanted in one direction or another. I subtly plays on the political spectrum with the red and blue motif. This is a little different than the other 62 Samsung vs Apple infographics built in the last 90 days.

It’s a keeper. Thanks Buy Mobiles. You did well.

Google Voice Search versus Siri

Google Voice Search

This is one of those debates that can likely only be answered by the users and will be biased based upon their preference. Android lovers will say their app works the best, while iOS fans will vote for Siri. We may never have a definitive answer, but we can definitely speculate and this infographic by IntelliResponse gives us a nice amount of information to try to give viewers some perspective, particularly if they’re not currently swayed in one direction or the other.

Hat tip to Miami Chevrolet for finding this one.

A Bold Message About Women in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Female Driver

It’s pretty difficult for those of us in western society to have any comprehension at all about the life of those in eastern countries, particularly those with completely different laws, lifestyles, and worldviews. Take, for example, driving. It’s something that the vast majority of boys and girls dream of doing when they turn driving age, yet it’s not allowed for women in Saudi Arabia.

This simple and powerful image is not a traditional infographic, but it’s a symbol for a movement designed to change the way that men think in the Muslim country.

The Energy Industy in 2040

Solar Energy

It’s impossible to see into the distant future, especially when it comes to technology. Many of the things that are commonplace today were barely dreams just five years ago, yet we still have our eyes pointed to distant technological advances molded by a worldview that is more akin to Star Trek than anything that we could possibly imagine based upon the current trajectory of society.

Technology is starting to really solve the problems associated with acquiring, storing, and saving energy. The automotive industry in particular is making strides as companies like Ford, Volvo, and Mercedes are all pushing the limits beyond the standard “hybrid” or “plugin” model. They are exploring new ways to think about energy and propelling cars along the road. We can expect some pretty amazing things from them in the future.

Is it Really that Bad in America?

American Eagle

Every day we hear how bad things are. The economy may or may not be recovering. The debt is too high. The government may shutdown again. We may default on our loans. Hungry people here. Poor people there.

When compared to other parts of the world, we’re not really doing that poorly in the United States. Our bottom 5% are wealthier than 2/3rds of the world. With such discrepancies in need, how can we be so politically charged about our finances?

Genetic Variation May Make People Hate Cilantro

Cilantro

From the world of fuzzy science comes the theory (some call it a fact) that there’s a genetic variation that causes people to despise the taste of cilantro. Granted, the test was pretty darn comprehensive – it consisted of nearly 30,000 people.

There are really two questions that need to be answered. First, how is it possible that an herb that is utterly despised by so many people (21% of east Asians hate it, for example) loved by so many others. For a food to be so polarizing is amazing and does not play well with the evolutionary thoughts of taste. The second (and arguably more important) question is why on earth would someone take the time to do genetic testing on 30,000 people to find out why they hate cilantro?

Bonus question: why would someone then make an infographic about the hatred towards cilantro? For better or for worse, here it is…
