Finally, A Skin Tint That Actually Covers Acne & Redness

I used to have a hard time admitting this, but I can now proudly say it: I'm picky. I won't eat a side of vegetables if it has carrots in it, the hotel photos on TripAdvisor have to look pristine before I book a vacation, and don't get me started on dating. Before meeting my boyfriend, I'd always find something wrong with every guy just two minutes into the date. So, it's no shocker that my exacting standards apply to my beauty collection, especially foundation.While I love the idea of a weight...

The Internet Seems To Have Killed Many Things, And You Can Now Add Buffets To The List

At least this one isn’t just Millennials’ fault. But seriously, buffets used to dot the landscape in the United States. No longer. “Yelp and Google Reviews and TripAdvisor and all of their ilk could be partially responsible for the demise of buffets. When things go awry — be it food poisoning or oyster crackers — a record is online instantly. There are no secrets.” – Vox

Weekly Roundup, Friday 5 April 2019

Our reliance on the amazing convenience of GPS might become an issue on Saturday. Story, below. Good morningI hope you had a great April Fool’s Day on Monday.  This year, more than previously, I found myself struggling to tell the jokes from reality.  For example, this story about a tiny town in Denmark with only 7,000 people being the location for a new 1050 ft tower, to become the tallest in western Europe, definitely seemed like a joke, but it continues to be repeated around the internet, an...

Should You Still Buy a Guidebook for Europe? Yes.

I’ll be the first to point out this irony: I started EuroCheapo, a budget travel website, back in 2001, and yet I still love traveling around Europe with a guidebook. Furthermore, I’m conveying this information to you — on a website. Ironies aside, I believe that when it comes to trip guidance, there’s room for everything. Websites, like the one you’re reading right now, are a fabulous platform for trip planning. You can “get educated” about the logistics, find the best deals (especially for hot...

Fleksy’s AI keyboard is getting a store to put mini apps at chatters’ fingertips

Remember Fleksy? The customizable Android keyboard app has a new trick up its sleeve: It’s adding a store where users can find and add lightweight third party apps to enhance their typing experience. Right now it’s launched a taster, preloading a selection of ‘mini apps’ into the keyboard — some from very familiar brand names, some a little less so — so users can start to see how it works. The first in-keyboard apps are Yelp (local services search); Skyscanner (flight search); Giphy (animated...

Is Amazon Itself the Biggest Problem with Fake Reviews?

Amazon refused to publish my negative review of the Netgear R6700 Nighthawk router they sold me. Why? The problem of fake reviews on TripAdvisor, Amazon, Yelp, and other similar websites featuring user reviews to provide an important part of helping people make decisions is well-known.  There are problems with both fake positive reviews (where establishments arrange for fake positive reviews) and fake negative reviews (presumably created by jealous competitors).A year ago a couple of people in L...
