    In-Flight Tech: Which Airlines Have the Best? By Paul Eisenberg Published October 04, 2010 | FoxNews.com Remember years ago when airlines first made seatback telephones available and you couldn’t get through a flight without overhearing a fellow passenger say, “You’ll never guess where I’m calling from!” Or think about your first time using the touchscreen in the seatback in front of you to play an in-flight trivia game against fellow passengers. Do you recall how good it felt to finally […]

    Follow Me At Sea

    Posted on July 1, 2010 by cruisemuse Copyright – Princess Cruises aaaaah… Alaska. While my right brain fed vicariously on the travel porn of the recent Princess Cruises social media junket; my right brain couldn’t help but wanting to analyze data and results. (RT @TripAdvisor: Travel porn is watching people do things you’ll never do in places you’ll never go.)  Certainly the sales and marketing team at Princess had some key metrics and outcomes in mind. Or maybe they just […]

    Twitter, Twitter, Little Stars

    When they’re not out practicing Twitter jujitsu, social media managers craft companywide guidelines and also proselytize within the ranks. Some employees inevitably balk at the idea of tweeting about their jobs because it sounds suspiciously like more work. Others worry—often rightfully—about oversharing themselves into trouble. Last year, James Andrews, a vice-president at the PR firm Ketchum flew to Memphis to talk to employees at FedEx (FDX), one of the agency’s largest clients, about digital media. Shortly after arriving in Memphis, […]

    A Look That’s Fun, Not Frumpy

    Reader Stories: What’s Your Fashion Look? From MidLifeRoadTrip, About.com Member How would you describe your fashion look? I would classify my style as a combination of couture, classic and sporty. Living in the South we tend to wear a lot of resort casual. Much of the time the heat dictates the outfit. Sundresses, capris by day. The little black dress, or pencil skirt and blouse by night. Jeans are a staple, fitted with a flare. No mom jeans here. How […]
