Google’s Flight Search engine adds 500 international destinations, more on the way

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Google’s Flight Search — which was conjured up after its acquisition of ITA — has been giving Kayak and Bing Travel a run for their respective dollars here in the States, but an airline search engine is only as good as its reach. This week, the company announced that over 500 airports outside of the US are now being included in the results (but, sadly, only if you start in the US), and while no specific promises were given, Google says that it’s “working hard on expanding [its] global coverage and adding more routes in the future.” Oh, and for those looking to disconnect in Samoa, APW totally made the cut here. Happy trails!

Skype gifts NYC with NYE WiFi, so you can miss the ball drop while Skyping the ball drop

Saturday, December 31st, 2011

Those kind folk at Skype already served up plenty of glorious WiFi waves across US airports this Christmas, and now it’s New York City’s turn. From noon on the 31st until January 1st, if you spy a “Skype WiFi” network, those tasty bytes are yours for the taking. The VoIP don has teamed up with WiFi provider Towerstream for the give-away, and recommends you load-up on the latest version of its famous software to make sure you don’t miss out. If you pack an iDevice, then it’s the Skype WiFi app you’ll be wanting updated in the lead up to midnight. Just make sure you don’t miss that kiss, just for a festive freebie.

Thinkpad Bus Seats Inaugurate New Buttputing Era [Notebooks]

Monday, November 30th, 2009

First question: How hard are Thinkpad notebooks? Hard enough to be installed in buses and tram shuttles as seats and keep working just fine. Second question: Are the trackpads scrotumsensitive? I like to think they are.

The notebooks—part of a campaign created by Ogilvy Frankfurt—were installed in buses and tram shuttles that lead prospective buyers to Lenovo Roadshows all over Germany. The buses were waiting by train stations and airports to get visitors to the events, offering them the possibility to either surf the web or sit their buttocks on. I would like to do both things at the same time. [Direct Daily]
