Pointless Nonsense

  • The chart to the right (click for larger) is from a NYT article about DVR ratings. I’m not the least bit surprised that Fringe gets the biggest percentage gain in viewers by DVR, considering it’s presumably tech-savvy fanbase and terrible Friday timeslot.
  • Every website is just saying “Apple is the least green tech company according to Greenpeace” and not linking to the study or mentioning that it’s specific to cloud computing, or including the chart inside the study. I’m not at all surprised by Apple doing poorly though, since they have a terrible record for philanthropy and generally seem only interested in being considered cool.
  • Simpsons Voice Actors in handy chart form.
  • I was going to link to a series of maps of obesity rates, but it was handily compiled into a video. It’s really shocking how fast they have climbed.
  • And another map animation of the shrinking of Indian lands in the US.
