  1. *sigh* IP numbers are not just any numbers. Specifically, each of the four blocks must be less than 256. There are a few other more specific restrictions, but the important bit is that neither 456 nor 789 can be used in a valid IP.

  3. Really Bad infographic.

    It uses a graph for easiest thing to understand: "1 in 4", but does not provide a visual representation of the other more complex stats like number of ISPs, connection speed, or number of MB/s.

    Also, it is misleading: it makes it look like the ISP makes the DNS request and does the translation from URLs to IP addresses.

    The NAP thing is just nonsense. In most cases there is no NAP.
