What I do know is that they better have the iOS 7 bugs sorted by the time these systems are rolling out. At the very least, this thing could used the more toned-down iMessages green.

In 2005, the Pearl District Association drafted the “6th Street Infill Plan,” which the Tulsa City Council adopted in 2006.
The official city document declares the plan “a comprehensive strategy for the complete transformation of [the district],” and the transformation involves “flood control [in the form of a canal]; new parks and trails; large-scale redevelopment,” all to “create excitement.”
Top: This rendering shows what the 7th Street canal could look like. Yes, you read that correctly. The plan calls for replacing a section of 7th Street with a canal.
Middle Image: This shows the new plans for the district, which will be up for vote on Jan. 30. In the new plans the auto-oriented zone extends farther down Utica and also stretches to include Peoria Ave. The other main difference from the original plan is that a much greater area is now zoned for manufacturing and warehouses.
Bottom: These are the original plans for Pearl District, with larger areas dedicated towards redevelopment and mixed-use infill than the newly proposed plan.
Just five years after China’s high-speed rail system opened, it is carrying nearly twice as many passengers each month as the country’s domestic airline industry. With traffic growing 28 percent a year for the last several years, China’s high-speed rail network will handle more passengers by early next year than the 54 million people a month who board domestic flights in the United States.
Surprise: if you build it, they will come. Wouldn’t it be great if the United States could figure this out?
