Thought For The Day

Attention airport management:

Next time you plan a remodel, consider adding arrays of grounded power outlets near the seats at the gates and putting up easy to spot digital clocks at intervals along the halls, set to the time the airlines are going by and such that they can be seen easily by travelers.

These two minor usability upgrades would be, at my back of the envelope guess, worth about ten times their price tag in terms of visitor satisfaction. I won't remember what color your carpeting is, but probably will remember the time it took half an hour to find a working power plug during a layover, only to be beat to it by a fellow traveler in need of a cell phone recharge.

I hear you! I had a related comment about outlets in aerodromes here (near the end).
