Not all ideas are good ones. Apple has had it’s own fair share of ideas gone wrong. The Apple #Fail infographic from 7 Day Shop is a compiled list of Apple’s not so successful inventions.

The Life Hacks for the Modern Traveller infographic from Direct Holiday Cottages provides you with some new travel tips for the connected traveller. Busy design style, but that’s how people lay out their belongings before packing them all up in luggage. The font size is too small for the size of the infographic.

The Call Center Employee Overtime Pay Laws infographic from overtimepaylaws.org is in informative design can help both employees and employers understand the rules when it comes to paying overtime. I love that this design simplifies the information, and doesn’t try to include too much detail.

Just for fun! There are many popular superheroes from comic books, but not all of their vehicles are well known. The Ten Classic Superhero Vehicles infographic from Cherished Number Plates has illustrated a few of the lesser known choices of transportations of our heroes.

Memorizing cooking unit conversions can be frustrating. Most of us just have a cheat sheet on the refrigerator that tells us that 1 Gallon= 4 Quarts. Well thanks to Andrew M.H. Alexander you might want to replace those boring magnets with the Baking Units Demystified infographic!

Stories of the Past and Future is an awesome timeline design from Randall Monroe at xkcd.com depicting the differences between when movies and TV shows were released, and the time periods they depicted. I printed off the large version and starting adding a few more on my own.
