Yahoo Unveils Top Searches Lists for 2010

It’s that time of the year again where year end lists happen before the end of the year so we are left to wonder just how accurate they are.

8. Justin Bieber
9. American Idol
10. Britney Spears

100 Million A Month Using Google Maps for Mobile

It’s the “Year of Mobile” v. 2010 remember? Whether it is or isn’t officially is irrelevant. What is important is just how much mobile is continuing to influence the lives of many Internet users. While not as ubiquitous as many in the industry would like us to believe, it is still a very strong component of the online world and one that has seemingly limitless upside for years to come.

Evidence of just how influential the mobile world is comes from Google who announced that they have hit the 100 million users per month using Google Maps in some form. No matter who you are, that is a big number. From the Google Mobile Blog

Cup of Joe: Those Who Can’t Blog, Make Infographics!

So, all week long I have been thinking about a really fun post idea where I make fun of Andy’s iPhone 4 obsession anticipation. But, unfortunately for you, (and fortunately for Andy), I haven’t had any time to write that gem of a post. Instead I have been baby sitting nieces and nephews all week while balancing client work! So like I always say, those who can’t blog make infographics! (or link to them!)

Below are a handful of my favorite infographics. I think all of them illustrate how art, information, and marketing can come together. Enjoy them all and add a few of your favorites in the comments section. Get ready for a regularly action packed full post next week! Same bat channel! Same bat time!
