Is This The Best iPhone App For Travelers Ever?

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Tired of being limited to the few hostels listed in your guidebook? Frustrated by not being able to find a hostel online when you’re away from a computer? This new hostel booking application from Hostel Hero is probably the coolest and best “must-have” item I’ve seen in a while for any traveler on their next […]

Lonely Planet Adds Guidebook Maps To Their Site

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

It was announced today over at Lonely Planet that they are adding their guidebook maps to their online guides, a welcome addition to the otherwise truncated online guides that used Google Maps before. However, a cursory look at the new addition shows that, curiously, the Google maps are still there, they’ve just added pushpins to […]

Best 50 Travel Websites . . . Ever!

Friday, March 20, 2009

The Independent has a list of their top 50 travel websites, which, annoyingly enough, is readable only one click at a time (can you say “ad sales”?). So if you have about an hour to spare today (come on it’s Friday, of course you do), stretch out your right hand, grap a cup of tea […]

Lonely Planet’s Now A Blog?

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Apparently LP ditched it’s old, clunky design featuring limited helpful information and loads of self-promoting ads for a clunky, blog-style site featuring limited helpful information and loads of self-promoting ads. I use Lonely Planet guides as much as the next guy when I travel, […]

When Are You Going To Be Able To Get Wi-Fi On Your Next Flight?

Friday, November 7, 2008

Take that non-interactive books, wi-fi should be up and running on many flights soon. In a related development, the romantic-comedy genre is expected to experience a steep drop in viewers due to its heavy reliance on bored, captive plane passengers for most of its business.
