A street in Paris wants to ban Instagrammers so the residents can get some peace

Rue Crémieux is a picturesque street in Paris, with lovely colorful facades and old houses. And just like Notting Hill: it has become swarmed by Instagrammers and the residents have had enough.

Week 15: Viva Las Vegas Baby!

We weren’t intending on visiting Vegas on our America Unplugged road trip. Our intention on  this trip is to go beyond the main tourist destinations that everyone knows, and strangely, wants to visit. But, since we were close by, and our Australian readers insist on incorporating Vegas into their travel plans, we decided why not? I wasn’t expecting to have a great time – I mean how long can you spend looking at casinos before you get bored? But, I arrived intending to have a great time and see V...

Where to eat at London Heathrow

London’s Heathrow International Airport is built for the hungry. Heathrow’s restaurants range from classy to quick to pub. Heavy emphasis on “pub.” Like London itself, you can find pubs with traditional English bar food and beer everywhere you look in Heathrow. Which is fine and dandy, but there are also a number of high-end restaurants with fast or slow service if you’re looking for something a little different. These are the best restaurants and bars in every terminal of Heathrow Internatio...

Flight Review: El Al Business Class (787-9) From New York to Tel Aviv

I have long been fascinated by El Al. Since they became a Qantas codeshare partner in 2017, I have wanted to experience the Israeli national airline. Long had I heard that El Al’s long-haul staples – the trusty Boeing 777-200ER – were not as fresh and comfortable as rivals flying on similar routes. But when El Al took delivery of their first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in 2017, I was set determined to experience their long-haul product. It only took me two-years!

Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp Go Down

Facebook was down for 22 hours yesterday, and its sister apps Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger also saw extensive outages. It was unusual in the sense that the four applications are each distinct codebases, but perhaps not suprising as all four share the same massive infrastructure. The joke is that global worker productivity shoots up whenever Facebook goes down, and you would think that Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and Messenger are nothing more than distractions in our increasingly digi...

Paris’ Rue Cremieux is Insta-famous

Paris is one of the world’s most Instagrammable cities and Parisians are sick of it. One colorful, cobbled street in particular, the Rue Crémieux in the 12th arrondissement, has become especially popular. Those who live on the street aren’t exactly thrilled, however, to constantly find themselves in the backdrop of tourist photos whenever they walk out of their doors or worse, have Instagrammers posing on their stoop or against their windows. Residents are calling for the city council to rest...

Elizabeth Warren wants to break up Google, Amazon and Facebook

The influential Massachusetts Senator and Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren has been a longtime critic of the consolidation of economic power by Amazon, Google, and Facebook. Now she’s making their break-up a key component of her Presidential platform. Warren has just released her plan for breaking up big tech, in what seems like a watershed moment for a Democratic nominee. Since Al Gore famously (infamously?) “invented the internet”, Democratic candidates have turned away from seri...

The Queen posted on Instagram

She might not be posting beach selfies and hot dog legs, but the Queen has finally jumped on the Instagram bandwagon.

Woman cyclist forced to stop

During Saturday’s Omloop Het Nieuwsblad cycling race in Belgium, a female cyclist was forced to stop when she pulled far ahead from the women’s group and caught up with the men’s. Swiss cyclist Nicole Hanselmann was enjoying a two-minute lead into the 75-mile race when officials asked her to stop at a level crossing until a gap could be restored between herself and the men’s group.

JetBlue contest asks users to delete their Instagram pics to fly free for a year

In a move that’s both bold and bizarre, JetBlue is introducing a new contest that will give three winners a year of free flights on the carrier. But entrance to the contest comes at a steep price. Users must delete all of their Instagram photos, post a new photo using a JetBlue template, and hope to be one of the lucky three. Entrants must keep their Instagram clear, and set to Public, through March 8. On the one hand, the Instagram-decimating contest may tap into some of the anti-social sentim...
