  1. Block third-party cookies, it's an option in your browser. Apple has proposed a variant of this feature will be standard on the next generation of the Safari browser, it is causing turmoil for advertisers. Pros: Better privacy, Cons: Free sites that depend on advertising will suffer.
  2. It's hard to shop around anymore, since most of the travel websites are owned by one company, Expedia..... (from wikipedia) Expedia, Inc. is an American-based parent company to several global online travel brands including Expedia.com, Hotels.com, Hotwire.com, trivago, Egencia (formerly Expedia Corporate Travel), Venere.com, Expedia Local Expert, Classic Vacations, Expedia CruiseShipCenters, Travelocity, and Orbitz. Expedia, Inc.’s companies operate more than 100 branded points of sale in more than 60 countries. Expedia also powers travel bookings for over 10,000 partners such as airlines and hotels, consumer brands, and high traffic websites through Expedia Affiliate Network, 80% of which is powered by their API
  3. Why go through all this trouble, just open a private window / Incognito window in your browser. On Chrome/Firefox click the sandwich in the top right corner and choose Incognito. When you close that window all cookies/history are deleted. No need to delete your existing cookies and loose all the good stuff (like login info for this site). I use this for all travel, rental car, hotel and shopping for gifts for the wife, etc...
  4. Canada's version of The Onion. Nice. TORONTO - Sources inside city hall have revealed that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford spent the entirety of Sunday night and early morning Monday meticulously planning his next highly anticipated public misstep.
  5. Wow… that is about the most inconsiderate thing I have read on this board, addressed to the 1000+ pilots at Jazz who are NOT in the lawsuit.
  6. So, let me get this straight. You believe that AC will go through all this trouble to lash out at Chorus because they crew 5 or 6 Thomas Cook owned airplanes?
  7. Not only in Starbucks etc. you also need to worry about using wi-fi in hotels. I now use Witopia, for $39.95 a year they provide you with a VPN tunnel.
  8. Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour, That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, A sun that is the source of all our power. The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see Are moving at a million miles a day In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour, Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'. Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars. It's a hundred thousand light years side to side. It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick, But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide. We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point. We go 'round every two hundred million years, And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions In this amazing and expanding universe. The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding In all of the directions it can whizz As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know, Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is. So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure, How amazingly unlikely is your birth, And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space, 'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth. Monty Python
  9. I really don't see a problem with this. The US has a right to know who is entering their country (even if they don't set foot their), and therefore have the right to refuse people THEY believe should not be entering. If Canadians have a problem with this we can demand that domestic flights only fly in Canadian airspace, increasing the distance, increasing the price. This will allow people who are on the US terrorist list to join them on board. I don't imagine this latter option will be a very popular option with most travellers.
