Venngage

Category: Infographic,InternetTeknovis @ 10:19 pm

I came across two very professional looking infographics from colleagues this week. The colleagues are not designers, so I was very impressed with their work!

It turns out that they both used Venngage.

I must give it a try the next time that I think that I need an infographic!

I must confess that I have never played Angry Birds, but I still like the story of continuously trying!

There are lots of other nice infographics on Funders and Founders.

Ireland as a Patent Nation

Category: Economy,Infographic,PatentsTeknovis @ 7:35 pm

FRKelly has produced a nice infographic in Ireland as a Patent Nation showing Ireland’s prowess as a patent filing nation (click to see larger version):

I think that the breakdown between academic institutions, individual inventors, and corporate bodies is the most interesting statistic.

I hope everybody is having a merry Christmas! I know I am :)

Anyway, here is a nice infographic by MBA Online charting the rise of Android (click image to see larger version):

I have heard it before, but it still fascinates me that Microsoft makes more money from Android than from Windows Mobile due to patent royalties!
