There are those of us who prefer working at a desk that’s clean, free of clutter, and devoid of anything but the work we’re focusing on.

How often do you really use that dining table in your apartment? Most meals are probably consumed in front of the TV or at a restaurant. Sure, it’s handy for the occasional dinner party or tax audit, but the rest of the time it’s just wasting space.

Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner and Airbus’ A380 are both competing to replace an ageing fleet of 747s that have served passengers for more than 40 years. But what’s to be done with all those jumbo jets once they’re been replaced?
