  • "When most warehouses/DCs  see these useless signs they take it as a personal challenge to see how many boxes they can stack on top of it. If want to 100% assure the package is tortured and endless number of stacked on it-put this sign on it. The usual treatment is to flip the box over -no sign on the other end lol while stacking it 4 high in a trailer "

  • "The article and comments address the symptoms not the cause as one would expect of those less informed. You are not getting Americans out of their cars period so let's move on to something that will add value and improve lives. Electric cars in America are not the future, there is no electrical grid to support it, the battery technology while good has a long ways to get including the actual manufacturing and disposal-all highly toxic. Wind driven energy is a far better investment to develop the infrastructure free of fossil fuels."

  • "Yes sure lets get rid of all the cars said George Jetson. Unlike most countries, public transit in the USA does not work for a wide range reasons in including geographical size, even in NYC the subway system is antiquated, its much needed but its a mess and no viable to fix it short of removing and rebuilding the entire system which will take 10 years plus and zillions of dollars. Lets move on to something more viable and in the realm of being feasible-mass transit in the USA is not one of them."

  • "Matt is 100% correct while the recycling "story" makes everyone feel good the reality is prime/virgin materials in most cases is more cost effective than recycled and for public corporate America that is a very tough sell to shareholders. With that being said there is little incentive for companies to use recycled materials, the USA lacks a country/government wide recycling program due to the cost cand capacity, many smaller EU countries are great at it, they have the government support, capacity and programs to force industry to make to it work. We are getting better but there is no top down drive to make it feasible. I know mulitple plastic recycling facilities that failed over power cost/equipment maintenance etc."

  • "Completely missing the point here, the order does not matter. People fly with too much crap to carry one. I have flown internationally over 1.5M miles and seen what does and what does not work, none of the USA carriers have a clue. There two airlines in china i have flown many on regional flights (2 hours and under) there planes load and unload with amazing speed-the solution is simple. There is no overhead storage all have been removed, big signs all over boarding explaining this, backpack or smaller only thing allowed in the cabin. And yes it works"

  • "These are the same sheep that spend $7 for a cup of coffee and $250 for sneakers and if you feel good about the fact Apple is making $900 GP on your purchase then ok. There dozens of great options at 1/10 the cost. These are the people will spend $1,000 on a stand $2,500 for a laptop and then cheap out and buy an Ikea table and $100 chair.  There are already knock offs on the market in Asia-100% same function and quality for  about 1/10 the cost."

  • "This absolutely proves how gullible and ignorant people are and will believe anything a major brand's marketing team will tell them to buy as the "latest innovation" I have a pair of these shoes in 1970 they were called Vans and did the exact same thing these at 1/10 the cost. Using an app to tighten your shoes? how lazy can we get? wheres the app to put on my matching socks?"

  • "The single most important thing designers can benefit from is to better understand manufacturing and it's process capabilities-they don't need to be experts but do need to understand manufacturing capabilities and limitations. I come across designers constantly who are clueless and don't care to learn-that is ignorance and limits there design ability, with better mfg understanding really allows more freedom to push the material and process envelopes. Software does not solve all and they need to understand the real world and fact they have designed something which on the screen is amazing however in the real world can't be replicated and they get frustrated engineer's don't understand there design when in fact its the other way around."

  • "Totally misses the point-let's take it to the next level where is going anyway. Remove the seats and overhead storage for short flights and call it what it is-a bus/subway with wings."
