The Only Three Cyber Monday Airfare Sales We Care About

November 26, 2012 at 12:09 PM | by | ()

As much as it pains us to type the words "Cyber Monday," it's true that there are enough travel deals out there to make the term stick a bit. Here's a few worth mentioning:

· Virgin America private jet to CES:
$49,000 gets you VX's #nerdbird, an A320 that'll bear a design of your choosing for one month. Oh yeah, and you'll get a roundtrip flight for 136 guests from San Francisco to Las Vegas for 2013 CES—the world's largest consumer electronics show—on that plane.

The trip will come complete with free onboard Gogo WiFi, Elevate Silver status for all guests, Elevate Gold for the purchaser +1, and all 136 CES passes and keynote tickets will be taken care of. We seriously dare you to find a private jet company that can beat this deal. They just can't, especially when it comes to the addition of the custom livery! Buy it on Gilt City. AMEX Centurion cards were practically made for moments like this.

A Travel Ninja Trick to Squeeze More Minutes from In-Flight WiFi

January 12, 2012 at 11:33 AM | by | ()

We've got bad news, good news and awesome news.

The bad news: The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is wrapping up and will end tomorrow, January 13. That means no more fun gadget announcements and breathless product release liveblogs on your favorite tech news sites.

The good news: Thanks to CES, Ford teamed up with in-flight WiFi provider Gogo to offer a free 30 minutes of WiFi on flights heading into or out of Vegas during the CES dates. Sure, that means the free internet access from 35,000-feet comes to a halt tomorrow, but wait...

The Three Travel-Themed Slot Machines of Las Vegas Casinos

January 5, 2011 at 4:23 PM | by | ()

Thanks to the blizzard in the Northeast that hit just after Christmas, we were stuck in Las Vegas, which, as any visitor who has spent more than 3 days there and wandered off the Strip knows, is a very small town. We got bored, and fast. Thanks to our boredom, however, we started picking up on the details of the city, like all the slot machines with quirky themes.

And in and amongst all the "Cougarlicious" and "the Monkees"-themed machines, we tracked down the only ones that mattered: the Three Travel-Themed Slot Machines Found in Las Vegas Casinos...

Some New Travel Gadgets Await At CES

January 5, 2009 at 11:59 AM | by | ()

If you're in Las Vegas this week and are wondering why there are so many pocket protectors around, it's because the annual Computer Electronics Show (CES) is taking place.

On Wednesday, geeks will descend on Las Vegas--some by car, most by plane and almost all of them filling up the city's lonely hotel rooms--for the world's largest consumer technology trade show. Here, companies will unveil their latest products, inventions and toys which will eventually be sold to the masses in 2009.

On the travel gear side, iGo--you know the company that sells like, a million different adapters and chargers for your laptops, cellphones and iPods--will show off their newest products for use on-the-go. The coolest one seems to be the iGo Laptop Charger which uses iGo Green Technology that reduces energy by thwarting "vampire power." (Yes, mention the word vampire and we're interested.)

Vampire power is the energy suckage that reduces your battery life even when a device is turned off or in stand-by mode. As anyone who travels frequently with a laptop knows, conserving battery power is all too important. Oh, the things we will do for an outlet. It's embarrassing actually.
