YouTube Is Closing

Since YouTube launched 8 years ago we all seem to have forgotten that the whole website is just a competition to decide who can upload the best video, tomorrow, on the 1st of April, the site will be shut down and all the content will be deleted, Youtube will then return in 2023 and at that point the winner will be declared and will win the generous prize of an MP3 player and $500 budget for their next creative project (so get uploading!).

In other news, it's April Fools tomorrow, I wonder what big websites like Google and YouTube have planned for us.

If Video Games Were Child Books

What if video games were child books? Well they would be very cute of course. The artist Jo3bot drew a small collection of what video games would look like if they were child books, and I would definitely buy them for my children if they were real. Okay child. Okay, me.

What Happens On The Internet Every Minute?

(Click the picture for the full size)

On average 639,800 GB of data is transferred across the Internet, and that amount is only increasing as the Internet gets older. Unexpectedly, YouTube, Google and Facebook take the top 3 spots for transferring the most data, Youtube has over 30 hours of video uploaded and 1.3 million video views, Google processes over 2 million search queries and Facebook has 277,000 logins and 6 million views. 

There are also other websites that contribute largely towards that 639,800 GB of data but this is a family friendly blog folks. Fine, it's CatHub, CatMovies and CatTube, some of the best places for cat videos.

Angry Birds Is Free!

Angry Birds is free for a limited amount of time, so go download it for free whilst you still have time, available on the iTunes store (Normal and HD) and from Amazon for Android/Kindle (normal and HD). I imagine if you own any sort of phone with access to an app store which sells Angry Birds you would already own it so this might not be a great bargain for you (me).

Japan Earthquake, before and after (2 years later)

In a short amount of days, Japan will mark the 2nd anniversary of the Tohoku earthquake and the tsunami, a photographer for TheAtlantic has taken a series of photos 2 years after the earthquake to show what has changed. Not much apparently apart from a few missing boats.

I would have GIF'd all the images but I thought I'd rather leave them in their full glory, to see the rest of the gallery click here.

One Of The Best Job Applications Ever

This is an advertisement from a tattoo studio seeking new tattoo artists located in Turkey. To be in a chance of getting the job you have to fill in the QR code with black pen, if done successfully you can scan the QR code and be sent the application form by email. So that rules me out. Damn these chubby fingers.

And Gears of War Judgement.... And a year of Xbox Live.... I've spent way too much on games this month. Money well spent.

Wanting to buy Bioshock Infinite but aren't sure if you have the cheapest price? This is a list compiled of the cheapest found so far (UK), I would recommend GreenManGaming unless you want Tesco ClubCard Points or have an Amazon gift card to use.
