Lets be honest, even though the simple title "Infographic of the day" seems menial enough, the fact that the name "Michael bay" has been put just a colon and space to the right of it just makes the whole affair seem more epic.

Infographic of the day: Why Hasn't the Person You Texted Responded Yet?

Infographic of the day: iPod and iTunes Timeline
It's true what is said, the transforming of data into presentation can be done to a point that it begins to look like art.  This is a prime example of this.  Displaying the key items in the timeline of the iPod hardware and the iTunes software which integrated with it.  A clock chart iconifies all the key time landmarks, along with a few key facts about downloads and sales at the bottom.  An ideal output of the numbers from the Steve Jobs era of Apple products.  Thanks Filip Chudzinski!

Infographic: Awesome workplaces in Silicon Valley

So what would be the perks of landing a job at the likes of Facebook, Google, Twitter or Linkedin?

All the havoc of receiving flak about the Facebook Timeline getting you down?  How about club massages?  Or what about if the contradictions about Google+ make you sad?  Go hit the rock-climbing wall!  Or maybe even when promoted tweets start to make little-to-no sense?  Why not go grab free haircuts and car washes?  

And what about when you need to take time out of the busy lifestyle to eat?  Since the regular cafeteria burgers is never enough, celebrate the gift of expense with the top chefs in silicon valley cooking you fine European cuisine (this is the U.S. transcript, we on the other hand fail to see the 'fine-ness' of European cooking).  Along with videogames, field trips, games of baseball and ping-pong to tap off what can only be described as the perfect day of work.  See our infographic of the day for more, courtesy of Resumebear.
