InformationWeek

These switches are important — if one is in the wrong position, a train could go off on a sidetrack spur at normal track speed and derail.

Train operators must visually check that each switch is in the right position.

Phablets put the hurt on tablets
InformationWeek
Phablets and the longer replacement cycle for tablets have left a dent in demand for slates. The growth rate of tablet sales may already be leveling off, according data from IDC.
