24 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Beer

Thanks to hipsters, the common man probably knows more about beer and zythology (“the study of beer and beer making”) than ever before. But did you know the oldest beer ad in recorded history appeared as far back 4000 BC? Or that IPAs were invented because British beer kept spoiling on its way to India, so brewers added more alcohol and more hops just to keep it fresh on the trip? And what about that cenosillicaphobia, huh? The fear of an empty beer glass, held by pretty much everyone and their moms?

Convert Measurements in the Kitchen with This Handy Infografik

How many cups is a pint or a quart or a gallon? How many teaspoons is each? When you're cooking and have to quickly convert kitchen measurements, a graphic chart like this is a great help. Sometimes you just don't have the right measuring tool for the recipe you're using. This "Common Cook's How-Many Guide to Kitchen Conversions" from graphic designer Shannon Lattin (who brought us an essential vitamins reference guide) shows you what to do for those quick conversions. At first glance, it probably seems more confusing than a simple liquid conversion chart. But when you look at it more closely and if you print it out for posting on your kitchen wall, it's pretty ingenious. The lines connect each measurement to their equivalent. (Note the + sign indicates an added measure to add. And, alas, there are no ounces here.) Source: Convert Measurements in the Kitchen with This Handy Infographic

How Social Media Is Making Over the Fashion Industry

Technology made its mark at New York Fashion Week this year with the rise of social media on the runway. One study from eBay Deals looked into data from five social networks during NYFW and found more people are using social media for wardrobe advice, inspiration and the latest trends. Top fashion accounts live tweeted from the shows and two brands, Badgley Mischka and Bergdorf Goodman, co-previewed their collections exclusively on Pinterest. Fashion-related tweets doubled from last year's events and profressional photographers made use of Instagram. As the New York shows comes to a close, social media will be a major factor at London Fashion Week starting Friday. Fashionistas can keep track of events and viral moments through a live feed that curates tweets and pictures from attendees. Source: How Social Media Is Making Over the Fashion Industry

Gmail: 9 years and counting

This April marks Gmail’s 9th birthday, and as year ten gets underway, it’s a good opportunity to look at how much has changed: the curse of the Bambino was broken, Martin Scorsese finally won an Oscar, and we stopped referencing Xena the Warrior Princess in our blogposts. And during that time, Gmail—and online communication as a whole—evolved too. So much of that evolution is a result of your feedback. In fact, Gmail was inspired by one user’s feedback that she was tired of struggling to find emails buried deep in her inbox. So we built a new email that leveraged the power of Google Search. You told us you were tired of spam, so we set to tackling that, and today your feedback makes it possible for Gmail to filter out well over 99% of incoming spam. You also said that you needed tools to deal with information overload, so we introduced Priority Inbox to help you manage your email (and we’re still exploring new ways to it even easier).
