15 Years Of Drought Have Not Been Kind to Lake Mead

The water level in Lake Mead has been fairly steadily falling for the last 15 years, something proven quite easily using many charts and graphs. But nothing hammers it home quite like NASA’s before-and-after shots.

Apple Pay is coming soon to Las Vegas casino, restaurants

apple-pay-china-uk

Apple Pay continues its rollout across the US with a stop in Las Vegas. The Cosmopolitan resort has announced that Apple Pay will be accepted at the hotels’ front desk, restaurants and bars by early June. Room service can also be streamlined using Apple Pay, as the concierge service will also accept Apple Pay as a payment method. This means that you can pay with your iPhone or even your Apple Watch.

It’s unclear if you will be able to gamble directly with Apple Pay — most casinos limit chips purchasing to cash only transactions. Or if credit cards are accepted, the payments are marked as cash advances so there are no ways to turn quick money. It is not known if the establishment can or will support this kind of transaction through Apple Pay.

In a statement, The Cosmopolitan marketing officer said:

“As always, we are thrilled to lead the market with a new component to a Las Vegas experience that makes everything a bit faster and a great deal easier”.

Apple’s market power has pushed Apple Pay quickly across America, with thousands of accepting merchants. Over 200 banks and credit unions now support Apple Pay. There is still no news about an international Apple Pay rollout, however. Cook said it wants to get Apple Pay internationally by the end of the year.

What I Found At The Biggest Gun Show In Vegas

The annual Las Vegas Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade show is the biggest gun show in America, attracting 33,000 people each year. And Sarah Palin. I was about the only visitor not wearing a pistol, but I did manage to find some neat new stuff.

Amazing aerial photos of Las Vegas like you have never seen it before

After capturing the most amazing images of New York ever, Vincent Laforet is using the same technology to photograph other major cities around the world. This is Las Vegas. The results are even crazier than NYC—with this unprecedented clarity and from this vantage point, Sin City looks like the world of Tron. Unreal.

This Car and Bike Sharing App Picks The Best Transit Mode For Your Trip

This Car and Bike Sharing App Picks The Best Transit Mode For Your Trip

There's one problem with many car and bike sharing programs: By the time you've decided where to go, you're already locked into a transportation mode. You're either waiting for a cab to pick you up, making your way to a kiosk of bikes, or unlocking a nearby ZipCar. What if you could tell an app what you needed to do and let the app provide you with the best method to get there?

You Can’t Build a City Like a Startup: What the Downtown Project Missed

You Can't Build a City Like a Startup: What the Downtown Project Missed

At the CityLab summit in LA yesterday—right about the time that Tony Hsieh's Downtown Project was supposedly laying off a third of its staff—I was having a conversation with a young, excitable urbanist who was heading to Vegas to see the Zappos CEO's $350 million instant neighborhood in the city's revitalized downtown for himself.

This Giant “Straw” Will Suck Vegas’s Water From the Desert

This Giant "Straw" Will Suck Vegas's Water From the Desert

Las Vegas gets 90 percent of its water from Lake Mead, the lake created by the Hoover Dam about 45 miles away. It's also a lake that's only half full—with water levels that are decreasing every year. Now the city must dig a massive tunnel that will dip deeper into the lake to ensure Las Vegas's water supply doesn't run out.

Vegas Is Tearing Down This Empty Hotel That Never Opened

Vegas Is Tearing Down This Empty Hotel That Never Opened

If you've visited Vegas anytime since 2009, you've likely seen the empty hotel. It doesn't have any signage, rather, it's often swaddled in ads, like the world's priciest billboard—a bloated Cirque du Soleil-wrapped blue whale hovering over the Strip for four lonely years. Now a court ruling is finally putting the doomed hotel out of its misery.
