    We currently live in an age where one can start reading a long article on one's computer, shoot the article over to one's phone and continue reading it on said phone while in transit.

There are now so many ways to connect to the Internet, whether it be via standard computer, tablet, phone, video game console, and even portable gaming device, and it has become so seamless and consistent due to web standards.

  7. The Reddit Invasion [Infographic]

    User-submitted content aggregators are a fairly popular method of creating a cohesive community out of scratch. From the olden days of newsgroups, to Slashdot, to Digg before the fall, allowing users to find or create their own content and submit it at their leisure can end up creating a surprisingly informed community with lightning-fast updates. Of course, that can also lead to a bunch of superfluous garbage, but a few communities out there are able to surpass that hurdle. More often than not, reddit tends to be one of the few examples of a user-submitted content aggregating community. If you aren't hip to reddit yet, or are the hippest of cool cats but want to brush up on your history, Sortable created an informative infographic full of information and graphics just for you, seen below the break.

  10. The Psychological Appeal of Angry Birds [Infographic]

    Market research firm Ask Your Target Market decided to delve deep into the Angry Birds phenomenon and perform a some market research to put together this informative infographic as to why the suicide-bird game is so popular and addictive. Among various other interesting tidbits, they found that people play Angry Birds 200 million minutes per day, which is equal to game play every hour of every day for 16 years.
