    This 2009 "subway map" of the Internet is based on Tokyo's subway system. This design company (like a few others, I think) does one of these every year. It's a articular genre of a thing called an "infographic" that you see everywhere.

HowStuffWorks: "10 Differences Between Macs and PCs" - 0 views

    This is a slide show about the differences between Apple computers and computers that are deemed "PCs". It compares everything from design to software. I thought it was interesting to see how people see these computers and what the actual difference between them were.
    I see that both you and Marion have shared links from -- that site usually has pretty good information, especially for basic stuff. I find it interesting that they're classified as an "entertainment" site; they pay people a little (not much) to write the articles, and then they sell ads on the content. I know a guy who works there -- Jonathan Strickland. Great guy and great podcaster.
    Interesting, Taylor, although I wish that article had a date on it. I bet it's a couple of years old: both Macs and PCs change a lot. Still, those differences still apply. Technically, of course, Macs are PCs, since PC stands for "Personal Computer," which a Mac is. But what can you do -- language is slippery.
