Crucial Memory, has this ad running in Mac magazines right now. It's amusing, but not actually informative. The infographics aren't the real directions to install memory. Instead, its an infographic style that tells the consumer they will be happier if they install more memory. I like it because the infographic style adds credibility.

Found on Wikipedia, this is the timeline of what was "Cool" from 1500 A.D. through today. Apparently, the Beatles aren't cool anymore...
Elliance.com is posting a weekly series of infographics to help explain and advertise their SEO services. These graphics talk directly to corporate individuals that want better websites, but don't design websites themselves.
A great way to use infographics to talk to your target customers, and I think it shows how well Elliance knows their target audience.
This image was real popular on Digg.com this week. It's hosted on tinypic.com, but there's no author listed.
I love simple infographics like this that use a visual metaphor to instantly get the point across. You can tell someone that the price of gas is comparable with Coke, but putting gas in the Coke signature bottle will get more people to understand the message.
My own reaction was probably the opposite of what the author intended. My first thought is "Coke costs how much?!?" I know there is a lot more expense in producing gasoline than there is in producing Coke. They must really be marking the price up a lot for brown sugar-water.
There is a similar analogy in the U.S. regarding bottled water. Some bottled water brands are now more expensive than gasoline! How is that possible?!?
Really cool new feature over on Digg.com. Back in late 2007, they added an Images category so users could digg their favorite pictures. Now they've added an interactive image viewer in the Digg Labs that lets you see new images and pictures being dugg in real-time.
The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't let you add any search terms. You have to see all of the activity, and can't narrow it down it all.
Gizmodo posted a number of the crazy images from the Japanese version of the Wii safety manual. These are hilarious!
I can't tell if Savvygraph.com is part of Amazon.com, or if this is a separate company running this. It takes any Amazon.com search terms you enter and charts the results on an X-Y chart showing the Average Rating and the total Number of Ratings.
It's fairly interactive. You can limit the price range using the sliders at the top, and when you hover over any of the pins you get the product image. Clicking on the pin takes you to that item on Amazon.com. Clicking on any of the links on the right limit the search to a smaller subset based on your choice (like a particular brand).
EDIT: I did receive an email from the author who confirmed that the site is totally separate from Amazon.com. Thanks Dave.
