Apple Walkpod?

walkpodHave Apple created an iPod with a cassette player inside? Very unlikely 🙂 What you are looking at here is either a hacked up Apple iPod with the innards cut out to allow a cassette to be put inside or a rather cool photoshop experiment.

How to Board a Train while it’s Moving

train-conceptWhen a train travels, one of the biggest problems is that the train has to stop and start again at each and every stop. This causes problems in two ways.
