Not So Wordless Wednesday: New York #3


So what could this be?  A corporate office perhaps?  A cyber-cafe?  

Nope.  It is the Delta terminal at the Laguardia Airport.  I walked through with my mouth hanging open.  What on earth was this?  Desks with barstools at each station.  Each station containing a multitude of outlets and wired Internet connections, plus an iPad and a credit card swiper.  I thought "Ah!  I have to pay for the privilege!".  

Not so.  Everything was free to use.  

The iPad had an application where you could buy, let's say, some sushi and a glass of wine, and have it delivered to where you were sitting.  Hence the swiper.  I think you could also buy stuff, like products, but I'm not sure if those would be brought to you, or shipped to your home.  I was in too much of a shocked state to check.  You also just read the USA Today, or read blogs.  

Could this be the wave of the future?  I sure hope so.  It was just so civilized.

Wow . . . too fancy to believe. I was super impressed with all the power outlets now installed in airport waiting areas -- never would have imagined something like this!
