The History of Mazda and Technology

Filed under: Technology Infographics, Transportation Infographics | 1 Comment »

Budds’ Mazda is the single part of the Mazda brand story. Mazda has been an integral player in the auto industry globally in the last decades; however, its history reaches back much further. It all started in 1920 with Mazda being founded as the Toyo Cork Kogyo Co., Ltd., which was started in Japan. As of 2013, the company had become an international success, with 2013 sales in Canada alone at a total of 71,859.

This infographic traces the origin of Mazda’s history and the technological advancements that it has brought to its vehicles and to the industry as a whole through the years. These technologies include the Skyactiv technology, a blanket term for Mazda’s new-generation developments, and its renowned, award-winning safety features that enhance driver safety through hazard perception and hazard avoidance tools.

So, take the journey through Mazda’s many accomplishments. It’ll be a breeze — or, should we say, a zoom zoom.

The Growth of The Mobile Gambling Industry

Filed under: Entertainment Infographics, Technology Infographics | Comments Off

With customer adoption of smartphones increasing, the way gamblers interact with the online gambling services is changing extremely fast. First, the PC allowed customers to bet from home, without any need to physically going to a casino. Now, the raise of mobile gambling allows gamblers to place their bets any moment, anywhere through their mobile devices.

As a consequence of this, the gambling industry has been growing in a new direction during the last two years. The use of the mobile gambling services offered by the betting operators has grown up to 150% in the last year. At the same time, in 2013 some operators like William Hill and Paddy Power reported up to 50% of their sportsbook revenue coming from their online services offered for mobile devices, up from just around 20% back in 2011.

Experts predict the gambling yields to more than double in 2015. We can talk about £4.7 billion revenue in 2012 for the global gambling industry. It’s predicted to be around £11 billion in 2015.

At the same time, the global spend in gambling per adult is also increasing rapidly in Europe, and even though it’s not this fast in Asia, the tendency is also to grow.

Mobile casinos are predicted to generate more than 15% of revenue of the whole mobile gambling market this year. As the CEO of Paddy Power said, “Mobile betting is the highest growth area of the UK Gambling market”.

What is a BTU?

Filed under: Home Infographics, Technology Infographics | Comments Off

As the cold and frosty winter months force you to curl up on the couch and turn up the radiator as high as possible, one truly wonders whether the capacity of heating provided is actually ample for the size of a tiny room.

The dark and dreary skies staring back at you as you look out of your window make you forget about everything else and just focus on staying snug. But if you really want a simple solution to staying warm, you need to take a closer look at your BTU.

BTU stands for ‘British Thermal Unit’ and is ideally what one needs to establish whether the heating options they are going for can suffice a small room or can quickly thaw out a large, freezing cold space.

For a simpler explanation to help avoid unnecessary high electricity bill, take a quick look at our BTU Infographic that puts it in a nutshell.

The History of E-File

Filed under: Business Infographics, Technology Infographics | Comments Off
In the 1980s, the IRS worked to improve the inefficient and time-consuming tax filing paper process with an online filing option to eliminate paper storage and cut down on processing time. Enter the beginning of e-filing tax returns, which started in 1986 as a small pilot program. At the start, only five tax preparers in three metropolitan areas – Cincinnati, Raleigh-Durham and Phoenix – agreed to test out the online tax filing system. Once popular tax preparation firms H&R Block and Jackson-Hewitt jumped on board, more individual tax preparers were willing to give e-filing a try. In 2011, the IRS hit the 1 billion milestone for individual tax returns received and processed. Today, 91% of all tax returns filed are prepared using online e-filing services and the electronic filing option evolved into a promising option for both tax preparers and payers.
