Print is Dead?

November 20, 2007

Yesterday, Amazon announced the launch of it’s wireless book and news reader. It’s targeted to travelers, which makes sense, since it sucks to read a paper on a plane, and no one wants a receipt or handful of loose change after purchasing a magazine at the airport. This isn’t the first wireless/electronic reader to be launched, but perhaps one will break through as a must-have in the next few years.

Post Office of the Future

November 9, 2007

Behold, the Post Office of the Future. A pleasing retail experience; open space, free wi-fi, leather chairs and work stations for the small business owner.  Clear signage, open layout. Much better than waiting in an informal line at FedEx and paying too much.
