Apple makes it way too easy to buy things from their stores.

  1. Walk in to Apple Store.

  2. Grab a Apple Watch band off the shelf

  3. Swipe up on lock screen to auto open Apple Store app because it already knows I'm in the store.

  4. Take picture of the band's bar code with app

  5. Touch finger to home button to pay with apple pay

  6. Walk out of store

This whole process probably took me less than 2 minutes..

We would shop at brick and mortar stores way more often if it were this easy everywhere!

Beijing has the coolest traffic control room

Simply one of the coolest looking rooms in terms of design. It's a shame that Beijing traffic is still an absolute nightmare. You may be asking yourself, "What's Beijing's traffic like compares to other major cities?"

According to Forbes:

Beijing, China: August 2010.  Imagine being trapped in a 62-mile long traffic jam that lasted for an incredible 12 days. That just what happened to the poor folks attempting to traverse the Beijing-Tibet expressways in August of 2010, for which the trip took as long as three days. Not caused by closure or natural disaster, this all-time tie-up cause was simply the result of too many vehicles clogging the road, particularly a bevy of heavy trucks carrying construction supplies into Beijing, ironically for road work that was intended to help ease congestion.

What are your thoughts on the design of each rooms?
