NYC Welcomes Touchscreen Subway Maps

What will they think of next? Starting this summer, New York's subway stations will replace old-fashioned subway maps with 46-inch electronic, interactive maps (not unlike your phone or those magic screens on CNN), The New York Times reports.
“The screens are a customer communications device,” the subway authority's Paul J. Fleuranges, told the Times, “Customers have to have at their disposal, maps, service, status, trip planning, and other services that are just a tap away.”
Of course nothing this fun can come without a price. The screens will also feature advertising that the Times says “will be hard to avoid and almost impossible to ignore.”
