A little machine that shocks your muscles promises to prevent jet lag if used during a flight. Although it did soothe our shoulders, a sleep specialist isn’t convinced.
Ian Cumming is a big nerd. He’s also a passionate traveler. These two traits combined can only result in something happy.
I’m a fan of Travellr.com, the website that Cumming, an Aussie gent, co-founded. I use it almost every time when I’m going to a new place. I have a link to it on the front page of this blog.
It’s a questions-and-answers service devoted exclusively for travelers. Ask a question about a place and it will tap into its network of self-appointed experts to answer it.
When it comes to mobile travel apps, it’s a buyer’s market at the junkyard. There is not shortage of half-baked, vaguely useful apps that you may use once or twice then forget they existed.
So many location-based apps that suggest attractions close to you have incomplete and often outdated databases. Place-specific guides also tend to be limited, often listing the most obvious attractions.
