Apple Streamlines Transit Mapping

Among Apple’s announcements yesterday, it may be the invisible computer efficiencies that make the biggest difference in the world, but I would pick out the transit map features as being a sign of the times. In the new OS X this fall, you will be able to research transit options from the desktop and send your selected route to your phone. This will go a lot faster than poring over a series of maps on the phone. After we get used to using transit route handoffs, we’ll wonder how we ever got anywhere without them.
