Uber is currently available in 70 countries and how it works, and what it and its drivers can and cannot do can sometimes vary from country to country (or even city to city) depending on local laws.
If Uber is anything like other large companies, I’d also suspect they experiment with new and different ideas in a select city or cities to see how it goes, and then roll it out on a larger scale if it’s successful. If that’s the case with this newest update in the U.K., well, it’s not a good thing for passengers and I hope it never makes it to the U.S.
J.D. Power is known for lots of surveys, including travel-related ones for airlines and hotels. But one thing they hadn’t covered was U.S. travel apps. I guess they decided to rectify that, because they recently came out with the inaugural U.S. Travel App Satisfaction Study…
Airlines love to tell us the reason they no longer have seatback entertainment is that people prefer to watch their own personal devices instead of the screens provided by the airline. While that’s a lie that’s a questionable assumption to make, we have to live with the fact that some airlines don’t provide any onboard entertainment and others say they do provide entertainment that you can watch on your own device.
Nothing says summertime like a barbecue and some members of the Delta Airline TechOp team in Atlanta apparently wanted a good one. They also had the time and know-how, and they even had some spare parts on their hands, so they started tinkering.
When they were done, they had a two grills made out of parts from a Pratt & Whitney PW2000 jet engine from a 757.
New York City has a lot of cool, old buildings that go as far back as 1652, and I personally love to find pictures of what they looked like when they were being built (well, maybe not the one from 1652 LOL), or were still very new. I enjoy seeing how they may have changed over time, not to mention what the surrounding neighborhood looked like in the background. You know, stuff like this:
The problem was that if I was walking around NYC, I could rarely learn about the building as I was walking around. At least, not with stopping to look it up. And if I waited until I got back to the hotel or home, I’d forget what I was going to look up or I couldn’t appreciate seeing the old photos with the real thing right in front of me.
