Running on Empty
Schiphol airport and one of the local media companies have signed a deal with the idea that travellers going through Amsterdam's airport can fill their MP3 players with stuff to listen to. Great idea, which isn't quite ready for prime time. First thing is that its for everything except the iPod and second, the shop is open during the day but not in the very early morning hours when thousands of tourists are wandering around looking for something to take on holiday. All the shops in Schiphol are open, except for this one. May be they saw the handbaggage rules coming before everyone else did.
