Weekly Roundup, Friday 27 March 2015

Good morning This is (almost) a single topic newsletter this morning.  The usual varied compilation will be offered again next week. It is amazing, isn’t it, how we can change our perspective on air travel in an instant.  There we are, sometimes going a year or longer without any fatal crashes, at least […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 20 March 2015

Good morning A slightly shorter newsletter this morning. But, and in anticipation of the upcoming summer travel season that seems to be rushing towards us at an exciting rate, there’s an extra article added at the end about how to use GPS outside your home country, along with a bonus mention of a […]

GPS Service When Out of the Country

GPS Service When Out of the Country

A GPS has become an essential and everyday part of our driving experiences.  The sometimes challenging art of map-reading is becoming a lost skill, and it is hard to imagine getting around without the help of general purpose products such as Google Maps and various dedicated GPS devices (from Garmin and others) and […]

Good morning Black Friday again today, I hope you don’t have to travel much.  This is the second of what will be three Black Fridays this year. Apple’s big launch event on Monday for its new watch had no surprises – at least, as regards the watch product.  Apple did surprise with other […]

Apple's Watch :  Function or Fashion?

Apple’s Watch : Function or Fashion?

Weekly Roundup, Friday 6 March 2015

Good morning For some of us, there’s a definite feeling of spring in the air already.  For others of us, there’s an equally strong feeling of continued winter, following another week of daily delays and flight cancellations, ostensibly due to bad weather. I pointed out last week that most of these ‘weather’ delays […]

Smart Watches - A Solution in Search of a Problem?

Smart Watches – A Solution in Search of a Problem?

Smart watches seem to be a good example of how not every new gadget that comes out is automatically something you must have, or even should have.  Just because smart watches are becoming popular with manufacturers doesn’t mean they are something we should all be rushing to buy. Indeed, smart watch sales to […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 27 February 2015

Good morning It has been another disgraceful week for the US air transport network, with weather related excuses erupting all over, yet again. How do you know the difference between a weather related excuse and a valid weather related reason (for flight delays and cancellations)?  It is difficult, but it is also fair […]
