Jeff Bezos smashes bottle of champagne while perched on top of a giant wind mill

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos posted this video to his Twitter account Thursday.

Amazon’s wind and solar farm initiatives help power Amazon Web Services (AWS) with renewable energy.

How granite countertops took over American kitchens

Granite countertops are an American obsession. But how did they become so ubiquitous? Our nation’s countertop history has had a few surprising twists and turns.

This is the final episode in the first season of Overrated – you can learn more about it here:

You can read the Vox article here: https://www.vox.com/2015/9/4/9258233/granite-countertops

Granite countertops are beautiful, but aren’t they a little overrated? In the past, Americans loved their formica and laminate countertops, so what changed the kitchen landscape?

It turns out that stone imports from countries like Brazil and Italy, improved means of importing and cutting granite, and a general decrease in cost made the once-elite material accessible to the HGTV-loving masses. The history of granite countertops isn’t just about shiny counters, but about international trade, technology, and how trends trickle down from elites to the masses.

Is granite here to stay? Who knows — quartz may prove to be formidable competition. But now at least you won’t take it for granted (yes, we knowingly passed up the opportunity to write “take it for granite” — classy, right?).

Open offices have been around a surprisingly long time. But they’re relatively misunderstood for their role in workplace culture. Where did open offices and cubicles come from, and are they really what we want?

This episode of Overrated explores the history, including Frank Lloyd Wright, Herman Miller, and other key figures in the office design movement. Our workplaces haven’t always been this way — this is how we got here.
