This wine is too good for toast-drinking, my dear. You don't want to mix emotions up with a wine like that. You lose the taste.

You know what’d be crazy. An airport so big it needs a subway.  “Done.” -Atlanta

Worst.  Airport.  Ever.

Evan has obviously never visited Miami International Airport.  Which coincidentally also has a subway.

In an ‘era-defining’ deal, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos bought the iconic Washington Post, after it had had six consecutive years of declining revenues. As much as this deal highlights Bezos’s vision, it also underscores a phenomenon of our times: Media and advertising companies are getting disrupted, changing forever.

Uber’s Algorithmic Monopoly: “We are not setting the price. The market is setting the price. We have algorithms to determine what that market is.”

mattstoller:

That’s a remarkable quote from the CEO of Uber.

Uber of course is a cab service that lets you order a cab from your smartphone via an App. It’s really neat, you get to watch the cab approach on a map, the payment is automatically applied so you don’t have to even deal with the transaction itself. The company is now taking its approach to logistics, and moving to ‘disrupt’ the delivery industry as well, competing with courier services, UPS, Fedex, and the Post Office. It’ll be interesting to see what happens there.

Don’t start with advertising.

Start from the transaction out. Start close-in to the point of sale and work outwards. What are the barriers that prevent customers from doing business with you?

3-D Interactive Display Uses Fog As Screens

Engineers have built an interactive display using a tabletop system and mounted personal screens made of fog. Projectors light the fog for each user and a camera system monitors movements, allowing each person at the table to manipulate and share three-dimensional data.

A team at the University of Bristol in the UK say their device, called MisTable, is see-through and reach-through. Both fog screens and the table display can be manipulated by users.

"The personal screen provides direct line of sight and access to the different interaction spaces," said Sriram Subramanian, a professor of human-computer interaction. "Users can be aware of each other’s actions and can easily switch between interacting with the personal screen to the tabletop surface or the interaction section. This allows users to break in or out of shared tasks and switch between individual and group work."

Compare this to the Displair, by Russian inventor Maxim Kamanin. See the MisTable video below.
