Peak Oil and the light at the end of the tunnel

September 12, 2011

6 Comments

For over 100 years we have relied on oil as a cheap, energy dense and portable form of power. Many advances such as plastics, ink, medicine, fertilizer, crayons, bubble gum, soup, glass and tires are heavily dependent on cheap oil. There is only a finite supply of oil in the world, and demand is increasing as the third world industrializes.

Peak oil, in a way, has already come: many countries and many production techniques have peaked, fortunately as demand has increased so has technology and our willingness to explore across the globe for new pockets. We’ve had to dig deeper and get creative in squeezing oil out of unconventional sources. There are still sources to tap, they’re dirtier, offer lower returns on energy invested and much harder to get at but they’re there. Unfortunately, the oil will eventually become too expensive and too sparse to viably meet our current energy demands and then we’ll need something new. Here’s our review on the subject.

Ghetto Blasters & Apple’s Manufactured Individualism

August 31, 2011

0 Comments

At Carsort we’re pretty big believers in individualism and we just love it when people do their thing. We wanted to do a post on the mobility of stereos and what an awesome invention the ghetto blaster was and how the whole phenomena around personalizing your car, your bike and your ghetto blaster rose up.

When we were coming up with this infographic we realized that Apples products have almost completely sterilized the mobile entertainment space so we switched tack. They pitch individualism with weird monotone dancing hipsters but the truth seems quite different, you end up with the same device everyone else has. Now that would be fine if apple sold their products like toasters but they don’t, they sell them like they’re magic golden eggs, so special and cool in a slick white box.  You’d think just by buying an apple product you’d stop farting, smell good and dance like Usher. You won’t.

The truth of the matter is that ipods and iphones are quite boring, this infograpahic celebrates the individual.

Firefly is a space western set in the 25th century where the renegade crew of the Serenity try to stay one step ahead of the long arm of the Alliance.
