From an infographic design view, I don’t like the legend for the color codes in the browser matrix. I shouldn’t have to look back and forth to figure out what feature is missing from a particular browser.

I was at the Southlake Apple Store today because the battery in my Black MacBook was dying. In fact, it was swelling up, getting extremely hot and randomly shutting the MacBook down. That was a problem. The laptop is 3 1/2 years old, which it puts it 2 years beyond the AppleCare warranty, so I had to buy a new battery. The Apple genius told me that usually this type of battery last 260 cycles, and mine had lasted 484 cycles. Not bad.
While I was there, I had to play with one of the new iPads, and of course had to make sure that Cool Infographics was displaying correctly. Not only was it displaying correctly, but the display on the iPad makes the blog look amazing!
Here’s how to setup an icon on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch for the Cool Infographics blog: (screen shots from my iPhone)
View CoolInfographics.com in the Safari app and press the “+” icon at the bottom of the screen.
Press the “Add to Home Screen” button.
Edit the name you want to display, and press “Add”. (The icon is loaded automatically)
That’s it! You can move the icon to any of your screens, and always have easy access to the Cool Infographics blog.
Zoomable map of the open source Linux operating system kernel. Designed by Constantine Shulyupin.
The Linux Kernel is one of the most complex open source projects. There are a lot of books, however it is still a difficult subject to comprehend. The Interactive map of Linux Kernel gives you a top-down view of the Kernel.
You can see most important layers, functionalities, modules, functions and calls. You can zoom in and drag around to see details. Each item on the map is a hypertext link to source code or documentation.

The NY Times just published this infographic tree that shows how complex the privacy settings on Facebook have become. I’ve got to imagine that Facebook wants the PR credit for giving their users a lot of control over these settings, but then in reality they know that they are so complicated that hardly anyone will take the time figure them out.
It’s astonishing how much of your personal information becomes public if you don’t take the time to figure all of this out.

Enrique Serrano (@eserranocom) designed this tall banner-style infographic, Apple, Flash and H.264, to help explain the conflict between Apple and Adobe Flash. There’s a lot of history between these two mega-companies, and even after Apple posted Steve Job’s Thoughts on Flash, it’s still not easy to understand what’s going on.
Since so much has been said about not having Flash support in the devices of Apple(mainly the Apple iPhone and the iPad) I put together as much facts as possible about Apple, Adobe, the iPhone and Flash, plus some on video codecs including Theora, H.264 and HTML 5 video.
I hope these infographics help you better understand the big picture with the current situation of these technologies and companies.
Mixing a timeline, bar charts, 100 circles, a couple pie charts and some illustrations, Enrique does a good job of covering most of the angles between Apple and Adobe.
The State of the Internet is an infographic by Focus.com that shows mostly demographic information about who is on the Internet today. I really like the “100 Circles” style to show percentages; it’s a far cry better than pie charts or bar charts. The data is gathered from multiple sources, so it’s nice to see one infographic that shows it all.
Here we take a look at exactly who is using the Internet the most, how they are using it and how much the amount of usage is increasing. At a glance, we can see that there are the same number of men and women who use the Internet. However, their age, educational background and level of income may influence how much time they spend online.

This was the original infographic, The Social Media Effect, from InfographicWorld that inspired part of yesterday’s post, The Visual FAQ of SEO. This infographic maps out the process of what happens when social media gets excited about your posted content.
A great example of why I started the Cool Infographics blog in the first place. Create a great place to find inspiration to create your own infographics.
Images are a fantastic way to present data and abstract concepts, they’re a much clearer way of getting information across and more people take the time to digest it. I thought it would be a good idea to try to present solutions and explanations to the more common SEO questions that we hear from our clients.
The image covers everything from basic keyword research concepts, through site architecture, page optimisation, link building, SEO tactics, social media, and some basic SEO and PPC clickthrough stats and explantions.

The team from ethority, inspired by Brian Solis and JESS3’s Conversation Prism: The Art of Listening, Learning and Sharing, created a version designed specifically for the German market. The prism shows the landscape of social media in Germany with all the relevant conversation channels.
Also, the prism has been updated and expanded using many of the suggestions from the comments and emails.
