Spending billions on applications and technology specialists, Facebook and Google are definitely in a "cold war" as cleverly stated in this article. This infographic does a tasteful job of showing the power-hungry corporations and their battle for attention through the digital world. Through the bold font choices and red/blue color scheme, this graphic portrays both political and warlike themes. This graphic is also quite informative as it clearly show each year in detail of the "tech arms race" from 2009 to 2014. I especially like the questions posed towards the end, giving the viewer something to continue thinking about.
