This is What the United States Looks Like at Nighttime

Here’s the latest view of the United States at nighttime captured by NASA’s Suomi NPP satelliteand revealed at the American Geophysical Union conference earlier this week on Wednesday, December 5.


This is a cool and striking photo, though as nighttime satellite shots are concerned, this is still our #1.

First of 250 internet-connected touchscreens replace pay phones in New York City
Since cellphones became ubiquitous, cities have been looking for ways to give new life to underused pay phones. Today, a pilot program is beginning to test one option: replacing the phones with touchscreens that can provide information about the surrounding area. The first two screens launched around Union Square, with two more opening tomorrow. Eventually, 250 are planned for installation in the next few months, and they may start showing up in more cities if the plan is a success. The kiosks are free and ad-supported, and a portion of revenue will go back into the city coffers. But are they worth using? We took a look at one to find out.

I expect speedy vandalism, but this is a pretty solid idea.
