What Each Country Leads the World In

It’s been a little while since we’ve posted some of the Internet’s most exciting, unusual, random, or otherwise awesome content on our site. We’ve been a little busy playing app developer recently (check this out). So here’s a little something we hope you enjoy to make up for it.

Planning a trip around the world, but don’t know where to go? Thinking of closing your eyes, spinning a globe, and seeing where fate takes you?  Let us help you out. Check out this cool map of the Earth, showing what every country in the world is awesome at.  Click on the image for a larger version.

Like raspberries (or nukes) – Head to Russia.
Have a thing for Velociraptor bones (clever girl) – Go to Mongolia.
Really craving a large dose of couscous – Rock on over to Morroco.

As for Travel Safe, our latest update is nearly finished and should be out in a few days. In the meantime, travel safe (particularly in Australia, we’re world beaters when it comes to deadly animals).

10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About the iPhone

 

 

Here’s a few fun facts for you.

Did you know that Apple has sold an estimated 387,446,000 iPhones? That’s enough iPhones that the packaged USB cords could reach from the Earth to the Moon.

Or that the App Store has sold over 50 billion apps? More than twice the amount of Apples harvested in the US every year.

It’s incredible to think how the world has changed due to this miraculous device, and smartphones in general. Who can remember answering machines, or calling the cinema hotline for movie times?

The challenge for us as developers is to harness this amazing power to create something more, something unique and breathtaking. It helps to put the phone down every now and then and look at the world. Inspiration is everywhere.

The limits of technology are only that of human imagination.
