There used to be time to arrive. Incremental geographical changes would ease the inner transitions: desert would gradually give way to shrub, savannah to grassland. At the harbour, the camels would be unloaded, a room would be found overlooking the customs house, passage would be negotiated on a steamer. Flying fish would skim past the ship’s hull. The crew would play cards. The air would cool.

Why major airports are missing a trick with their lack of free Wi-Fi access | Information Age
Here, the example is in airports: It lets the airport team observe where certain areas might become congested, allowing quicker reaction and reducing the impact on passenger flow. Furthermore, the heatmapping functionality enables them to overlay demographics, which proves particularly useful when examining the use of certain spaces. Airports can ascertain where it would be best to place new shops and restaurants, as well as signage and advertisements effectively. They can also observe how long it takes people on average to move from the restaurants through security to their gates, to inform future tactics and measure KPIs accordingly.

New rules put laptops in checked baggage - Or, The Carry-on is Dead
Whao...travling in the UK is gonna suck. And, even the US is banning "personal hygiene products" as a carry-on. Taking it by the letter, this means you'll always have to check a back, even if you just have tooth-paste. Get ready for suckage.
